Exciting news for anyone interested in the potential-filled markets of North Asia, Southeast Asia and Latin America!
The North Asia, Southeast Asia and Latin America Centres of Asia-Pacific Excellence (CAPEs) are joining forces to offer the nationwide 2019 Market Insights Programme (MIP).
The MIP is a project based, guided internship programme that harnesses the market and culture-specific insights of domestic and international tertiary students and matches these to the needs of New Zealand businesses.
Last year, the programme was piloted to great acclaim by the Southeast Asia and Latin America CAPEs.
This year, the cross-CAPEs programme will engage with students, businesses and expert partners in Auckland, Hamilton, and Wellington.
Students are selected through a competitive application process and are guided by dedicated academic mentors throughout the programme.
Expert partners join the programme to host specialist workshops and facilitate valuable networking opportunities.
The 2018 MIP earned high praise from participants. Student Sarah Shum said the programme offered a real-world environment and gave her access to mentors in the industry.
Jo Coughlan, Managing Director of public relations and marketing communications firm Silvereye, credits the programme for helping their company better understand and engage with internationally-facing companies in key Asia-Pacific markets.
