2017 CBE internship program interns of the year

2017 CBE internship program interns of the year

10 May 2018

Especially today with so many people graduating from university, you do need to differentiate yourself in some way, and being involved in a program like this is a step towards that. It is great for setting your expectations on what the professional work environment will be like.

Final year Bachelor of Commerce & PPE student, Nicholas Krempff, and Master of Business Information Systems student, Harish Chakravathy, have been named the CBE Internship Program Interns of the Year for 2017. The award recognises the outstanding contribution made by interns to their host organisation. 

The CBE Internship Program provides select students with the opportunity to apply theoretical knowledge and skills from their studies to identified projects in a professional environment.

Our undergraduate recipient, Nicholas, was hosted by Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry. During his time at ACCI, Nicholas investigated trade implications for Australia following Brexit.  

‘With a major in International Business and interest in trade, I was quite fortunate that the internship project was aligned with my academic and personal interest,’ says Nicholas.

Nicholas reflects on the CBE Internship Program as an opportunity to work in a professional environment as part of his undergraduate studies.

‘Especially today with so many people graduating from university, you do need to differentiate yourself in some way, and being involved in a program like this is a step towards that. It is great for setting your expectations on what the professional work environment will be like,’ he says.

Our postgraduate recipient, Harish, was hosted by Intelledox, a computer software company.  Harish was grateful for the real-time exposure to information system modelling and cloud computing at Intelledox, and his increased knowledge of the industry.

‘The best part of the internship program was being able to apply what you’re studying to your work. It’s definitely a benefits realisation of what you study at university,’ he says.

‘Having participated in the internship program, I now know what to look forward to in the work environment. You can better set goals for your career knowing what kind of roles you’d want to work in and what kind of jobs to apply for,’ Harish says.

Director of Employability at CBE, Associate Professor Vinh Lu, is proud of the win-win collaboration between the College and industry partners.

‘We are very proud of our interns, who are determined to make the most of their exposure to the professional workplace landscape and sharpen their employability skills,’ says Associate Professor Lu.

“Many congratulations to Nicholas and Harish for a job extremely well done. They have certainly gone above and beyond for their internship projects, exceeding the expectations of the hosts and making a real impact with their deliverables,’ he continues.

The ANU College of Business and Economics’ focus is on developing leaders who transform business, society and economics. The award winning Internship Program sits within a suite of opportunities designed to integrate the student experience firmly within a professional context.

Applications for CBE Internship Program in Semester 2 are now open. Interested students and industry partners can find more information here,
