Introducing the Launch U Trade Accelerator Program

10 Nov 2020

Are you interested in gaining real-world experience while expanding your professional network?

USC, in conjunction with Study Queensland and Practera, is offering students the opportunity to work on a 2-week real-world business experience. The Launch U Trade Accelerator (LTA) Program engages student teams to undertake international market research/analysis projects for real Queensland Exporters.

Through LTA, students will act as 'business consultants' to conduct market research analysis for a Queensland Exporter. Students will be required to commit to 25 hours in total over the 2-week experience. Student teams will collaborate completely online to complete the project. The next two cohorts will run in November.

Cohort 1
  • Orientation date: 25 Nov
  • Program start: 30 Nov
  • Program end: 11 Dec
Cohort 2
  • Orientation date: 2 Dec
  • Program start: 7 Dec
  • Program end: 18 Dec

As a participant in the LTA program, students will also get access to the Launch U Portfolio, an online platform where you can record all your employability experiences and earn a Queensland Government issued micro-credential. You will also be eligible for 50 points towards the Student Leadership Award on completion of this program.

To apply, please submit your expression of interest via Student Hub by midnight 18 November. For further information, check out the event listing in Student Hub and visit Study Queensland.
