Internship program shortlisted in national award

27 July 2017

The ANU College of Business and Economics (CBE) has been shortlisted in the third annual Australian Financial Review Higher Education Awards (Employability category) for its flagship internship program.

The awards highlight the tremendous contribution that the Higher Education sector makes to Australian prosperity and quality of life.

CBE’s Director of Engaged Learning and head of the internship program, Dr Vinh Lu, said the award recognised the merits of the internship program.

“We’re very pleased to be shortlisted for the AFR award alongside other national peers in the Employability category. The success of the program is a testament to the vision of the College on student employability,” said Dr Lu.

“It also reinforces the quality of the win-win partnerships that we’ve established with ANU internal business units, ACT-based companies, not-for-profit organisations and government agencies.”

CBE’s Associate Dean of Education Dr Bronwen Whiting, congratulated Dr Lu’s team.

“The CBE Internship Program has proven itself effective at facilitating the work-readiness of our students and providing strong outcomes for the participants. Shortlisting in the AFR Higher Education Awards (Employability category) is an acknowledgement that the broader community see the value of this program for our students, academics and industry,” said Dr Whiting.

The focus at the ANU College of Business and Economics is on developing leaders who transform business, society and economics. The award-winning internship program sits within a suite of opportunities designed to link the student experience firmly within a professional context.

Recent graduate of the internship program Megan Stokes, Bachelor of Commerce/Economics, is off to Sydney to start a career as a graduate consultant at SMS Management and Technology.

“The CBE internship program definitely helps your professional development and gives you confidence to sell yourself, your skills and your abilities,” Ms Stokes said.

“The internship has made me job ready, it’s made me really excited to get out there and experience the real-world work environment.”

Winners will be honoured at an awards gala dinner at the AFR Higher Education Summit in Sydney on 29 August.
