“I am Devika Chandramohan, pursuing Master of Business Administration (Advanced) with the Sydney Business School, University of Wollongong. With previous experience in delivering IT solutions, I am broadening my expertise with a specialisation in Supply Chain Management and Logistics.
Sydney Business School, University of Wollongong provided me a great opportunity to work with AGL energy through their structured internship program for students. As a Procurement Intern at AGL Energy, I was able to apply the academic knowledge to obtain a tangible industry experience. Internship at AGL has served as an ideal platform to shape my professional career.”
Master of Business Administration
GWP900 – Internship with AGL
"My internship with AGL has been incredibly helpful for my studies. During my time as an Online Engagement Specialist, I learnt a lot about the way companies in Australia operate. My manager at AGL taught me a lot, especially how to communicate with different stakeholders. After I graduate, I plan to stay in Australia as a permanent resident and hope to gain full time employment. Getting a Postgraduate qualification from UOW is much more than just a piece of paper – it’s given me real world experience, and the academic qualification to pursue a career in business."
Master of International Business
Internship with the Flagstaff Group
“My name is Sukulthara Chumsakwinit. I am from Thailand and am currently enrolled in a Master of International Business through UOW. International business is my primary interest, focusing particularly on multilanguage and multicultural contexts.
Thanks to Sydney Business School, University of Wollongong’s internship program I was fortunate enough to receive an internship with the Flagstaff Group, doing marketing research for them. Being able to work in an Australian office environment was extremely rewarding, in particular giving me the opportunity to communicate at work in English (which is not my native language). I also encountered and worked with disabled employees, which further expanded my horizons.
The experience I’ve received from the internship should help me when I find a job in my own country, because I can show that I have good English language skills, have experience in an Australian office environment, and can work in a multicultural context. UOW staff were very helpful in getting me the internship through targeted questions that helped to define my special area of interest, thus enhancing both the value of my placement and the prospects for my future career.”
