Differentiate yourself, while you make a difference.

Hands-on. In Country.

Apply Your Skills to Solving Real Global Issues

Has a 3 hour exam ever changed a family’s life for good? What about an assessment or an in-class quiz? The reality is that we don’t get to see our personal skill set in action until after we graduate, and honestly, that’s ridiculous! As part of an international Entrepreneur Internship, you’ll be part of a team of university students developing a sustainable, tailored business solution tackling a social issue. Our Ventures, ranging from agriculture and food security, through to health and environmental sustainability, are aligned with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, as we strive to enable 1 billion people worldwide.

Stand Out from the Crowd

In Australia, 39% of 25-34  year olds hold a Bachelor Degree or higher, compared to 11% in 1990. It’s not enough to hold just a university qualification and a defined set of skills anymore. So imagine being able to say yes to having experience in the startup space, international development, cross-cultural communication, social enterprise, lean business principles, and design thinking methodologies… and you haven’t even graduated yet. That’s one way to differentiate yourself, that’s for sure. Source: Australian Bureau of Statistics, 2017

Build the Skills that Employers are Craving and Land Your Dream Job

Today, only 1 in 5 graduate selection criteria is based on academic results…and after all those years of studying! The current trends that employers are seeking in graduates include oral and written communication, teamwork, interpersonal skills, problem solving, and emotional intelligence. Soft skill development is a core part of our Entrepreneur Internships, as you grow in all of these aspects, not to mention in a foreign environment in the context of building a real business. Employers would trade their own qualifications for this kind of experience! 2016 AAGE Employer Survey

Get More From University – Out of the Classroom

It may not feel like it during exam time, but you have an unbelievable amount of time and flexibility as a university student (hello 3 month holidays!) – so make the most of it! Our Entrepreneur Internships operate during the Australian university, running for 4, 8, or 12 week blocks, so you can come on board with us and be back in time for classes to start again or even to fit in more travel! Not only this, but universities are recognising the value of our opportunities, meaning that course credit, professional experience, or funding and scholarships may be available for you. That’s right, you could be fast tracking your degree, building your CV, and receiving the funds to do it!

Unmatched Leadership and Business Development Training

Our further training pathways are unlike anything else in the world. If you thrive on personal development, for yourself as much as for others, then you’re not going to want to finish at the end of your internship. Our Leadership and Business Development training takes your skill set even further in comprehensive, simulated, experiential scenarios, dedicated to the tailored learning and application of skills that you can take back overseas on our ventures. We even offer paid leadership and consulting positions to participants who continue with their training. Time and time again, our students say that this has ‘changed their life’ and opened up further opportunities for them upon their graduation.  

So what are you waiting for?
