It’s a wrap! Congratulations to all 14 teams of the Global Trade Accelerator Program from the University of Melbourne after completing 6 weeks of teamwork and Market Research for Australian exporting companies.
A chance for students to practice their employability skills
The Global Trade Accelerator provides students virtual work integrated learning projects with Australian exporters & trade organisations at large scales. In a team-based experience, students collaborate with exporters to work on a real business problem.
Students benefit from the Practera technology enabled program. Donglin, one of the student participants, highlights the value of the program.“A great program to provide real project experience for students and leverage students’ skills and different cultural background”
Clients were delighted by the high quality of student work
It was a relaxed celebration close-out event hearing from participating inbound and exchange student about their learning experiences, followed by great prizes and networking. One of our Exporting Clients commented, ‘We would like to commend the teams for delivering their reports within such a short timeline, the time and effort spent on the reports was clear and is a credit to them working together to deliver against our brief. Both reports took into consideration our GTA brief, a standout delivery over and above our expectations to provide a very comprehensive analysis of their market including robust recommendations for launch’.
And that’s not the only exporter client who was satisfied. Despite the short duration and being fully virtual, 100% of participating exporters expressed that the final deliverables met or exceeded their expectations, with 42% saying the outcomes significantly exceeded their expectations!
