Business Experience

Keep good company

Get experience before you start working

What students think:

"It's really hard to find a good position in a company".

What companies think:

"It's really hard to find talented people".

What we do:

"We bring talented people and companies together".

The University of Sydney is the university that's working with business

You may have heard the phrase, "I can't get experience without a job." That's why part of our course has you working in a real company in the real world, helping solve real business and real management problems.

And what good company you'll keep.

The official University of Sydney corporate partner is Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu who has a great input into the Master of Management curriculum. We also have strong links with PricewaterhouseCoopers, Ernst & Young and KPMG which rounds up the 'Big 4' (largest international accountancy and professional services firms).

Our multi-national corporate partners include Electolux, Thomson Reuters, SAP, Symantec and L'Oreal. Our other national corporate partners are Bluestar, DC Strategy and Futurestep.

We have also have also worked with not for profit organisations such as Future Direction Network, The Smith Family and Fitted for Work.

And if you qualify for the Master of Management (CEMS) degree, the list of European business partners is equally impressive. And of course you work with a company that is relevant to your particular interest.

Think of the experience you would gain working with any one of these companies.

Indeed, international experience shows that many students are offered employment while they are actually doing the work experience component of the course.

Our Student Information Office can give you more details when you apply.
