Work experience is so crucial we’ve made it part of our curriculum.
Many graduates are not able to find jobs after university because they have not gathered the skills required to work in real world work settings—skills such as effective communication, working in teams and solving every day problems.
That is why, at ALU, each year you will spend 8 months on campus and 4 months in an internship with one of our global employer partners. You will gain exposure to real industry problems and engage in tasks that drive home the 7 Meta Skills learned in the Leadership Core.
Before you start your internship, you will participate in an internship preparation course, which give you a good understanding of the company you are going to work for – from insight into the company’s core business activities to learning about the company culture, the preparation will ensure that you are a productive member of the company and make a great first impression with your new manager.
The internships serve as a fantastic training ground for practicing the skills you have learned in your courses. You will graduate with an entire year’s worth of work experience, making you highly attractive to your future employer.
Here are just a few of the employer partners you might work with:
