Chairmont and the Australian School of Business at the University of New South Wales (UNSW) have partnered to offer students studying abroad the opportunity to intern at Chairmont.
The purpose of the program is to provide international students the opportunity to experience working while living and studying in another country. The goal being to broaden the intern’s life skills and understanding of the world while undertaking finance-related work. After the internship and study abroad program have been completed, students should have a better understanding of international business on top of the financial acumen acquired from class and the internship. Through the internship program, UNSW aims to strengthen its connection with the financial sector whilst preparing its students to enter the workforce.

"My experience as an intern at Chairmont was one the most memorable I had while studying abroad in Australia. Not only was I given valuable experience in an innovative professional environment. I had practise in operating in the office of a culture that was different than my own.
