Immersion features

Global Careers Masterclass
Our online masterclass consists of 5 practical career readiness modules and can be taken separately to the global professional immersions, but must be completed as an essential component. An intern invests approximately 15 hours to complete the masterclass. Intakes for the masterclass are monthly. Interns receive a certificate on completion.

Global Professional Immersions
We have 2 global professional immersions: Our Essentials immersion is 7 weeks, and the Accelerator immersion is 11 weeks. An intern invests an average of approximately 10-12 hours per week, which includes coaching by our gurus. Intakes for the Essentials and Accelerator immersions are February, April, July and October. Interns receive a certificate on completion.

Global Connections Alumni
Our alumni (the Guru Advantage ‘tribe’ of past and present interns, hosts, gurus and other influential partners) contribute to regular online seminars, networking, Q&A sessions and other professional events supporting interns in developing and launching their global career.

Focus of immersions

Completing our immersion program in business strategy, international business development, or policy and regulatory design provides interns with essential transferable skills that can be applied to different sectors.

Projects target opportunities or challenges for growth organisations, with solutions that involve innovative practices, for example, data, digital and globalisation strategies.
