Practical Experience

"I've been able to gain relevant industry experience" - Bonnie

The Bachelor of Business integrates opportunities for you to gain national and international workplace experience and professional mentoring, building practical skills and work-ready graduates.

To prepare you for the strong focus on teamwork and collaboration in business and commerce careers, the Bachelor of Business includes an emphasis on group work as a form of assessment. Working in groups helps develop the necessary teamwork skills required to make a successful transition from the classroom to the boardroom.


The Newcastle Business School also offers work integrated learning (WIL). If you are a high achieving student, you will have the opportunity to participate in an industry placement in the final year of your commerce degree. You will work within a major Hunter Region organisation and complete a project alongside professionals.

This opportunity is a way to gain valuable industry experience and insight, and to establish links within the business community that you may be able to take advantage of when seeking future employment. An industry placement is undertaken as a course within your commerce degree – 'Project in Business'.


The Lucy Mentoring Program provides women students within the Faculty of Business and Law the opportunity to participate in a unique leadership program aiming to inspire, motivate and educate women about the opportunities for employment in the corporate and public sectors.

Lucy Mentoring Program participants are allocated a mentor working in the public or private sector. Students experience the work environment and establish professional business networks – both of which are beneficial in gaining employment and career progression in any organisation.
