Intern program praised

The agreement comes after Universities Australia joined with a number of business groups to strengthen the relationship between universities and businesses and to offer more shadowing programs and internships.

Notre Dame School of Business dean Chris Doepel said the university had run an internship unit as part of its business degree for more than eight years as a way to further develop the students’ preparation to enter the workforce in their chosen field.

‘Notre Dame’s graduates are highly sought after in the marketplace, which is reflected in a graduate employment rate above the national average and continued five-star ratings in the areas of Graduate Satisfaction and Teaching Excellence,’ he said.

He said Notre Dame business students completed their internships at large corporations, not-for-profit groups, resource companies and sporting teams and that many would gain full-time employment because of this.
