INTBUS 7509 - International Management Internship

North Terrace Campus - Trimester 3 - 2019

International Management Internship involves an Internship with an Australian or overseas business, not-for-profit organisation or government department. It may take place in a face-to-face or virtual context. The course provides the student with an opportunity to experience a hands-on business environment in which to observe and apply their international management knowledge and skills. Experiential learning provides opportunities for students to apply theoretical knowledge, develop and consolidate skills, reflect on practice, and develop an understanding of international management from the practical perspective. Projects are negotiated between the Faculty and the sponsor within the host organisation, and may include a marketing plan, organisational development plans or activities, social and economic development plans, research, business development, customer relations, events management and market entry strategies, or any other negotiated project. As well as undertaking an agreed project, students may be involved in observations, meetings, clerical work and administration, to gain a clearer insight into the day-to-day functioning of the business. Students must complete the program to the satisfaction of their host organisation as well as an academic supervisor qualified in International Management to be eligible to pass this course. Internships will be offered to students on merit through a competitive application and interview process. Students must seek approval from Master of International Management Program Coordinator and Internships Team for a formal and structured work placement, which is relevant to their studies before undertaking the placement, including participation in pre-placement activities.

  • Student Feedback

    The University places a high priority on approaches to learning and teaching that enhance the student experience. Feedback is sought from students in a variety of ways including on-going engagement with staff, the use of online discussion boards and the use of Student Experience of Learning and Teaching (SELT) surveys as well as GOS surveys and Program reviews.

    SELTs are an important source of information to inform individual teaching practice, decisions about teaching duties, and course and program curriculum design. They enable the University to assess how effectively its learning environments and teaching practices facilitate student engagement and learning outcomes. Under the current SELT Policy (http://www.adelaide.edu.au/policies/101/) course SELTs are mandated and must be conducted at the conclusion of each term/semester/trimester for every course offering. Feedback on issues raised through course SELT surveys is made available to enrolled students through various resources (e.g. MyUni). In addition aggregated course SELT data is available.

  • Student Support
  • Policies & Guidelines
  • Fraud Awareness

    Students are reminded that in order to maintain the academic integrity of all programs and courses, the university has a zero-tolerance approach to students offering money or significant value goods or services to any staff member who is involved in their teaching or assessment. Students offering lecturers or tutors or professional staff anything more than a small token of appreciation is totally unacceptable, in any circumstances. Staff members are obliged to report all such incidents to their supervisor/manager, who will refer them for action under the university's student’s disciplinary procedures.

The University of Adelaide is committed to regular reviews of the courses and programs it offers to students. The University of Adelaide therefore reserves the right to discontinue or vary programs and courses without notice. Please read the important information contained in the disclaimer.
