Students on industry placement

Internships and placements

Gain real-world industry experience while you study
We have a number of opportunities available to help prepare you for your career in the business world.

Anna Bezuglova, Industry Placement Program

Anna talks about her experience spending six weeks in Paris working as an international marketing consultant. 

In recognition of the value that experiential learning adds to the development of your employability skills, the Business School is offering students the opportunity to earn credit for a placement or internship that you have sourced yourself. 

The program differs from other internships or work experience programs by complementing your placement experience with a unit of study.

Access all that the University of Sydney Business School has to offer alongside your professional development with your employer through our cadetship. 

As your cadetship will encompass both work and study, the timetable for cadetship students is tailored to ensure that you meet both your academic and employment requirements. We offer classes in blocks on a particular day of the week as well as a range of evening classes in core units of study.
