Looking for a way to liven up your summer? Can’t fit a semester abroad in your schedule? Enroll in an approved summer program with the possibility of obtaining course credit! Our partners have business-focused programs across the globe.
To apply for the Smith School Australian Internship Program, please see details below.
For partner program summer opportunities, the application process is managed by the partner institution, but students must seek approval for each program through UMD’s Education Abroad Office. The programs listed below are entirely run by partners, so students must abide by deadlines, requirements, and restrictions that are set by the partner.
Some programs are listed in UMD’s study abroad directory, while others are not. If the program in which a student is interested is listed on the list of UMD approved programs on this website, the student should first apply on myEA to get approval from the University of Maryland.
If the program is not listed, students must file a Non-UM program petition to get approval from Education Abroad. The process is not difficult but must be completed by March 15.
To receive approval to transfer business credits, students must also speak with their Smith School academic advisor. The Smith School cannot guarantee that courses will transfer or apply to students’ degree program.
Please note that in addition to the individual program fees, students will be required to pay up to $250 in a study abroad fee and will automatically be enrolled in international health insurance approx. $33/month.

Spend the summer of a lifetime with a two-week BMGT course and an eight-week internship in Sydney Australia!
The program starts with a 2-week short-term course, BMGT454 (Global Marketing) for 3 credits taught by Mary Harms, a Smith School faculty member. Site visits and meetings with Australian and multinational companies in Sydney will give participants a sense of doing business in Australia.
The course will be followed with a guaranteed 8-week internship that will provide students with a first-hand look at what a career in Australia might look like and how their chosen industry works. Based in Sydney, Australia, the internship program will give students an international experience that is invaluable for building their professional development and resumes, while supplementing their current course of academic study at the Smith School.
Partner programs for Summer 2014 will be listed here as they are announced.
