CBE Internship Program

ANU College of Business and Economics is proud of our reputation for excellence in the CBE Internship Program and the academic programs that support it. In 2016, the Program won the Silver Award (Oceania Region) at the Reimagine Education/QS Stars Awards, supported by QS and The Wharton Business School at the University of Pennsylvania. The Program also won the 2016 CBE Award for Excellence in Educational Innovation.


Applications for Semester 1, 2021 are now closed.


The CBE Internship Program gives students the opportunity to undertake an internship in either Semester 1 or Semester 2 as a six-unit or twelve-unit course.

Each internship is project-based with deliverables set in agreement between the intern, workplace supervisor, and academic supervisor. Interns will commit 120 hours (for six-unit) or 240 hours (for twelve-unit) to their projects (approximately 12 or 24 hours per week over 10 weeks). In most cases, interns will work from the host organisation's offices gaining valuable exposure to the professional work environment.

The Program also includes five (5) practical workshops throughout the semester to assist in further developing skills within the workplace.

Each intern will be supervised by a workplace supervisor and an academic supervisor, and be supported by the CBE Careers and Student Employability team (Course Convenor, Tutor, Career Consultants, and Program Coordinator).
