The Internship Program is where the academic educational experience comes alive. It is an opportunity to put theory into practice, gain new skills, balance competing priorities and learn about a new business or industry first hand.
MGSM MBA students work with an organisation for a period of ten weeks (up to 14 hours per week). The student will be supervised by a member of faculty from the Business School who will support and guide them through the research project. At the completion of the project, students present the results of their findings to the sponsor’s Executive and/or Board and provide a written assessment of the project to the academic supervisor for grading purposes. This is a for-credit MBA course selected by our top students.
The internship projects are diverse in nature and have included: competitive tendering for Australian government funding, developing strategic business plans, skills auditing at senior management level, product launches, developing a talent management strategy, resolving a long-term problem for a funds manager, etc.
Learning in a classroom is one aspect, but building the confidence to actually put it into practice on multi-million dollar real case scenarios is what comes from an MGSM MBA.

The Living Case Study
The Living Case Study is an intensive and richly rewarding 10-week unit. A small class of high-achieving MBA students will work on a major strategic project. The class is split into syndicate groups who work directly with the sponsoring organisation’s Senior Management on the problem. At the end of the term the groups make formal presentations outlining their recommendations. The students will be supervised by a member of faculty from the Business School who will support and guide the student through the research project. This is a for-credit MBA course selected by our top students.
The Living Case Study is an exceptional opportunity to exercise new skills and experience the complex issues, competing pressures and different dimensions of business, first-hand.
