Intern of the Year Graduates

11 December 2018

Veeanna Lee is graduating from a Bachelor of Actuarial Studies and along with her testamur, she takes away a huge number of valuable experiences from her time at the College of Business and Economics (CBE). Veeanna is an international student who moved from Malaysia to study, and during that time she has thrown herself at all the opportunities the College offers, from the CBE Internship Program through to the Global Business Immersion (GBI) trip to Russia earlier in the year.

“I took part in the CBE Internship Program last year and through that, I was nominated for one of the Intern of the Year awards. That gave me the chance to become a student ambassador for the CBE Employability team. Since becoming a student ambassador, I’ve been involved with helping the team to coordinate the CBE Internship Program. It was very interesting going through as a student and then seeing the back end of it and how it all comes together before a student even enrols.”

Veeanna is quick to point out that even though some of the programs fell outside the specific area of her studies, she was still able to identify and develop relevant skills by participating. For example, although Veeanna was majoring in Actuarial Studies, she took part in the GBI trip, which is a Management course.

“As an actuary, you look at a lot of risk management and corporate risk, and it was really interesting to see how international business has different risk. It might not be a traditional actuary thing to do, but when you go on these kinds of courses and excursions, you do learn something that’s related to what you’re studying and you can see how what you learn in the classroom is applied in the real world.”

Veeanna’s advice for new students starting their studies in CBE is to make the most of all the services and programs that are available to them at the College.

“Definitely explore! Especially within CBE, there are so many options to engage with, through MomentuM, the Special Industry Project or the CBE Internship program. There are so many opportunities that inform your academic studies."
