The 2016 ACT Exporters Scholars

The 2016 ACT Exporters Scholars

2016 ACT Exporters Scholarship Program launched

16 March 2016

The College of Business and Economics has recently announced a new scholarship program that will match 9 undergraduate and 2 postgraduate students with local businesses to develop and implement international business strategies.

The Exporters Scholarship Program has a dual benefit: participating students gain real life work experience and build their networks, while the business they are matched with receive support to grow their business.

Dr Vinh Lu, Director of Engaged Learning at the College of Business and Economics said the program is an extension of the International Business Plan competition, which is now in its sixth year.

“Through the International Business Plan, we continue to receive very positive feedback from our exporters, who comment on the high quality of our students and the export plans they produce,” he said.

“Work-integrated learning opportunities like this allow ANU students to sharpen their employability skills while making a difference to the local business community.”

Speaking at the launch event last week, ACT Minister for Higher Education, Training and Research Meegan Fitzharris said the new scholarship program, which is financially supported by the ACT Government, would help the ACT exporting community further develop and implement their international marketing plans.

“This is a perfect partnership for the ACT Government to have with the ANU, because we have a really strong interest in encouraging our local businesses to reach out to the world,” said Ms Fitzharris.

“We’re a smart and innovative city, and we can make these sorts of partnerships go a long way and get enormous value out of them, both for our economy and for our major institutions,” she said.

Third year Bachelor of Commerce student Qaleem Ainuddin will be participating in the scholarship program, and has been matched with OnTheGo Sports. He says he is looking forward to working with his client.

“OnTheGo Sports produces customised sportswear for corporate events, charity runs, and the like. They produce high quality sports garments, and they do it really quickly. I will be helping out with their expansion plans to the US or South-East Asian market.”

“Through this program, you really get to see how a business is run, and get an insight into all the decision-making people who run the business have to do,” he said.

“I hope I can deliver some work they can actually implement, and in the future, be able to see an impact.”
