For the fourth year in a row we welcome the Deakin Faculty of Business and Law as they commence their 2 week group internship program. There will be 20 students split into 5 groups of 4 and placed with a host company. The students work as a small consulting team, completing projects developed by the hosts that may include feasibility studies, development of marketing strategies and other project requirements that assist the SME hosts. The students not only obtain project experience in an international setting but also cross-disciplinary experience as they are immersed into their host companies. The interaction with staff and clients and other social aspects of the hosts provides for an inclusive environment where the students can feel welcome and apart of the host company.
The students have access to networking nights with alumni and other professional organisations. So far they enjoyed the activities last weekend getting to know their way around Kuala Lumpur and some delicious street food on Jalan Alor afterwards.
