Boston University Study Abroad and the Questrom School of Business offer Questrom students an exciting opportunity to earn management credit and complete a four-credit internship in Sydney, Australia. The Sydney Management Internship Program, which is offered only during the spring semester, features an extended, six-month semester. At the start of the program, students complete a core course and a full-time internship arranged by the BU Sydney Center. From March to July, students directly enroll at the University of Sydney. During their time in Sydney, students live in single bedrooms in fully furnished 3 or 4 bedroom suites at the Sydney Center.

Open to BU students only, the Sydney Management Internship Program offers an extended one-semester internship program consisting of three courses at the University of Sydney, at least two of which must be a management course, a course on Australian Culture and Society, and an internship.

Students should refer to Questrom’s lists of pre-approved courses before applying.
