Business experience that sets you apart.
Employers and recruiters seek graduates who stand out from other applicants, who have practical experience, a positive attitude, and the ability to learn on-the-job.
One way to demonstrate these qualities is through our Business Placements Program, an intensive work integrated learning opportunity designed to connect students with their chosen industry. Our program provides students with the opportunity to work in your area of interest, whether in government, not-for-profit, private or a specific business environment.
The business placement team from the Tasmanian School of Business and Economics will organise your placement, where you will work on a business related project throughout the semester. In an area of interest, whether in government, not-for-profit, private or a specific business environment.
Not only will you gain a competitive advantage for employment by participating in the Business Placements Program, you will also achieve credit towards your degree. You may study the equivalent of one or two units (12.5 or 25 credit points), depending upon your degree structure* and project availability.
To be eligible for our Business Placements Program students are required to have completed at least three semesters of full-time study, have obtained at least a credit average or higher, or be able to demonstrate comparable skills through an interview.
