With the help of the program’s Masterclasses and client consulting assignments. I have gained skills in leadership, problem solving, critical thinking in developing strategies. They are essential to accelerate my career journey.
I believe that Guru Advantage doesn’t offer just a normal internship experience. It has truly upskilled my career mindset and made me more confident to face my career journey.
So, for those who want a more interactive, hands on internship experience, the Guru Advantage Global Professional Immersion is for you.

I would really recommend the GPI immersion program because the international experience that you get is extremely unique.
I think a lot of companies right now can’t really offer that in terms of internships but they definitely look for people who have had international experience. Being able to work remotely for a company in Thailand was extremely valuable and is one of the things that I always bring up in (job) interviews.
I (could) tap into the vast networks that (Guru Advantage) offers. Part of my growth came from all the eye-opening conversations I had with industry leaders in the agriculture and agritech sector. So my confidence, my growth, came from being able to have productive conversations with them and glean ideas from them as well.

Coming from a health background myself, the program taught not only business fundamentals but also important lessons for professional and personal growth.
Having Guru Advantage private masterclasses with industry professionals with years of experience proved to be one of the most rewarding sessions. Being able to hear about their stories, their personal struggles and how they overcame them was not only inspiring but also greater motivation for me to pursue careers in fields which I did not think feasible before.
The practical experience in a new field and significant time for on-the-job learning was greatly appreciated by someone who is a tactile learner like myself and gave me a taste for working in a high pace, intensive working environment

Masters in Public Health, Lecturer, University of Sydney (2022)
I was a fresh grad with limited work experience and really conscious of the gap in my abilities. I knew I needed mentorship. Guru Advantage not only helped to bridge the gap between what I knew and what I didn’t know, but it also closed the distance with how I felt in my professional ability and my capacity.
My mindsets were definitely challenged, my perspectives were definitely expanded and my foundations for working were established. I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Guru Advantage and I would not change it for anything because I can see the tangible results of my learning and development. That’s what makes it truly invaluable.

I had the opportunity to challenge myself in a unique international and multi-disciplinary team, working with clients on a project with real world impacts.
The Guru Advantage program’s masterclasses were extremely valuable in developing a strong foundation of best practices which were also enhanced by our gurus’ professional experiences and insights. We were able to apply our new skills in a uniquely challenging environment, allowing more practical opportunities to engage in client stakeholder management, sourcing leads and pitching ideas.
This was essentially an experience that I wouldn’t have expected until later in my career.
Bachelor of Law/Bachelor of Arts, Ashurst (2022)
I had an amazing opportunity to work as a Business Consulting Intern with Guru Advantage’s GPI. I got to work with interns from other countries which was an amazing experience for me and my biggest role was to come up with marketing initiatives.
I learned a lot from this experience and I’m really grateful for all the people I met throughout this project. I’d like to thank (Guru Advantage) the most for giving me this amazing opportunity that helped me grow as a person.
Bachelor of Business Administration, High Net Worth Client Case Representative, Senior Associate at Vanguard (2022)
Challenging but worth it. Those are the words I would use to describe my GA GPI experience.
Having to conduct customer-discovery interviews, and having the opportunity to meet many distinguished individuals, I’ve learnt the importance of tailoring my communication style to the person I’m talking to, to more effectively pitch my ideas.
The GPI program is unique in that it features a practical project paired with informative masterclasses where you get the opportunity to learn from experienced professionals or gurus.
I learnt many valuable practical skills which I believe will give me an edge in the workforce. I’ve already been able to apply some of these skills in my current role in an engineering consulting firm. My learnings from my GPI will continue to help me as I continue to progress in my career.

This was the first time we ran UNSW ASEAN Society’s Global Young Entrepreneurs Case Competition (2021) to address business issues in Southeast Asia. It would not have been possible without the extraordinary and kind support of Guru Advantage who went beyond any of our expectations on their level of involvement to support the youth of ASEAN.
The result of our work along with our partnership with Guru Advantage was a successful competition joined by 139 participants from 12 countries and 31 universities worldwide. It was an amazing journey.
B. Laws/B. Commerce Student (2022)
Working with Guru Advantage was an eye-opening experience for me. As a student paving the road through university, whenever I needed guidance and support with the event, Guru Advantage were there to help and answer any questions I had and for that I would like to extend my gratitude to them.
They’ve shown me that it is possible to achieve great things through hard work, discipline and dedication. It has been an honour working with them and I am excited to see what the future holds for us.
It was a pleasure working with Guru Advantage who were fantastic every step of the way. We were blown away by their generosity, support and enthusiasm throughout the entire process and cannot imagine how differently the event would have gone without all their help.
Anyone who is lucky enough to work alongside them in the future, whether as part of the Guru Advantage program or in future initiatives, will undoubtedly be thoroughly impressed.
B.Commerce/B. Econs, Consultant, EY (2022)
It was a pleasure to work with Guru Advantage and the international team of interns and it was a positive professional development experience for my staff who joined the international team. I’d like to have done the GPI when I was a student!
The GPI raised new ideas and directions, some of which we can immediately implement and also independently confirmed the directions we were considering which is useful.
The team conducted research, data analysis and CEO interviews with organizations in Thailand and Australia, and delivered impressive presentations with findings and recommendations that we can use in future strategies.

It was interesting working online with the international team of interns because they had different perspectives and backgrounds. We asked them to give us as many ideas as possible as we wanted fresh thinking. Even if it wasn’t feasible to implement now, these ideas could be useful in future.
I was pleased when the team delivered a diverse range of ideas and recommendations in their final report, from international marketing ideas from other countries to industry specific (in this case agritech and agriculture) initiatives to engage Australian companies with the Thai farming community.
