Interns in Industry

Interns in Industry gives students the opportunity to complete a business internship with a local eastern-region business, made possible with a long standing Deakin Business School (DBS) collaboration with three city councils Whitehorse, Knox and Maroondah.

Running for over ten years, Interns in Industry has provided a great learning experience for many Deakin students, and excellent industry engagement for local business in these council areas.
