Career development opportunities
We prepare our students for global professional careers through a range of initiatives designed to enrich their skills.
From the way we’ve designed study options and timetables, to exciting opportunities to connect with businesses in Adelaide and overseas, we ensure our students graduate industry-ready.
Our suite of opportunities is strengthened by invaluable industry connections, links with international partners and award-winning support services which set up our students for success.
During their studies, students can:
- Seek career guidance and expert advice through one of our mentoring programs
- Undertake an internship with a local organisation
- Build transferable enterprise skills employers value
- Complete an overseas study experience
- Add a second qualification by studying a combined degree or a bachelor-masters package
- Maximise timetable breaks through intensive courses during Summer and Winter School
Fostering Industry Connections
Our Business Career Mentor Program, Executive Partners Program and Executive in Residence initiative provide alumni and industry professionals, and our students with the opportunity to create valuable networks and share experiences.
We match organisations with students to not only support talent pipelines and skills development, but also offer fresh perspectives to business thinking.
This exclusive seminar and networking series connects executives and thought leaders with our MBA and postgraduate students, high achieving undergraduate students and alumni to share leadership insights and advance debate on issues that affect our society.
The Business School invite industry senior executives to be our Executives in Residence. Located at the UniSA Business School each Friday throughout Study Periods 2 and 5, our ‘on-duty’ executives engage in one on one appointments with students and help them with the career queries from an industry perspective.
Enriching Student Learning
Every business and law program has a suite of six transferable skills our students will develop and nurture across their studies – giving them skills employers value.
We collaborate with over 60 partners across Asia, Europe and the Americas to deliver our students short and long-term study experiences.
For select degrees, students can complete a bachelor and masters qualification in just four years allowing them to fast-track their study and further their expertise.
Undergraduate students can expand their career opportunities, skills and knowledge by adding a second specialisation to their program, typically with only one extra year of study.
In addition to two main teaching periods, we’ve altered our timetable to allow students the opportunity to study intensive courses, travel overseas or complete an internship during summer and winter.
Centrally located on campus, our Business Student Hub team is available to support students with these learning opportunities, individual study plans, course selection, elective choices and more.
