The partnership will provide Australian nationals and Chinese citizen students access to internships, work integrated learning opportunities and graduate positions.

“The business environment in Beijing continues to grow and thrive. Providing our students with direct access to industry-based opportunities through AustCham China is invaluable,” Faculty of Business and Economics Dean, Professor Paul Kofman said.

The University has previously collaborated with AustCham China, KPMG and the Australian China Business Council to produce the annual Doing Business in China Report that outlines the experiences of Australian companies operating on Chinese shores.

“We have deep connections with Beijing through our large local alumni network and existing industry partnerships. Becoming an official member of AustCham reflects the Faculty’s continued commitment to nurturing the relationships we already have and building new ones,” Professor Kofman said.
