Designed for aspiring business leaders, the LAPP offers the best possible head start to your career. Combining study in American business and leadership skills with a professional placement in a leading organisation, this is a not-to-be-missed opportunity for senior students preparing to enter the workforce.

Undergraduate students from the University of Sydney Business School are eligible for the nine-week placement program.

You will:

  • Gain invaluable international experience
  • Learn about the intricacies of American business, politics and culture
  • Network with business and government leaders
  • Receive credit towards your degree
  • Complement your studies through a professional placement

You will complete three compulsory units of study and receive 18 credit points towards your degree. To complement your study, you will complete a professional placement in a leading organisation such as a finance, entertainment, law, marketing or media firm. There are also placements in local government and think tanks.

Students will travel with a member of staff for the first two weeks of the program who will provide program and internship support.

The LAPP was developed in 2012 by the US Studies Centre in partnership with the University of California Los Angeles Extension (UCLA Extension).
