CBE congratulates Interns of the Year

23 August 2017

The ANU College of Business and Economics (CBE) Internship Program has recognised two high performing students as Interns of the Year.

Bachelor of Actuarial Studies student Keat Hui (Brandon) Ng was named Undergraduate Intern of The Year 2017 for his excellent performance in an internship with aviation surveillance consultancy IE Asia Pacific.

He says that taking part in the CBE Internship Program has given him a competitive edge compared to his peers.

“The exposure to working for an Australian company is very valuable for international students like me. It enabled me to reflect on my own strengths and weaknesses when it comes to a real-life working environment. Thanks to my internship host, I had the opportunity to apply what I have learnt throughout my degree into my internship project,” Brandon said.

His workplace supervisor Dominic Nadvillaveetil nominated Brandon for the award, to recognise Brandon for being hardworking, focused on the job, a great team player and for going above and beyond the requirements of his internship to deliver a useful business solution.

Reflecting on the internship program, Mr Nadvillaveetil said “the interns worked on a critical piece of information which the company wanted to research. The experience was fantastic as it gives us a chance to work with new and motivated young students like Brandon who are looking to prove themselves.”

The Postgraduate Intern of the Year 2017 is Munivenkata (Muni) Krishna Sunkappa Reddappa, an MBA student from India who interned with ANU Facilities and Services.

“The knowledge and skills gained through the CBE Internship Program surpassed my initial expectations. During my internship I acquired several significant graduate competencies by working in a dynamic and fast-paced Australian business environment. At the completion of this internship, I had an increased level of confidence that I am a competitive candidate in the Australian job market.

“I am certain that this experience will add tremendous value to my continuous learning and working process. Participating in the CBE Internship program was a great opportunity indeed,” Muni said.

Muni was nominated by workplace supervisor Scott McClymont for his efficiency and willingness to tackle a challenge.

“Muni completed everything that was thrown at him. The project involved Muni finding many solutions to problems as he went along. It also involved Muni grasping all aspects of commercial property management, and documentation and adapting to a unique software system. Muni excelled in all aspects,” Mr McClymont said.

Dr Vinh Lu, Director of Engaged Learning at the ANU College of Business and Economics congratulated Muni and Brandon on their successful internships.

“Brandon and Muni were brilliant representatives of the College and ANU on their internships – they applied themselves with enthusiasm and impressed their internship supervisors with their skills, experience and willingness to learn. They both achieved significant results for their internship hosts and richly deserve their Intern of the Year awards,” he said.
