Four International College of Management, Sydney (ICMS) students are set to start their internships at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida, USA, next year.
This intake brings the number of ICMS students who have enjoyed this international opportunity to the milestone number of 70 since the industry partnership between ICMS and Disney began in 2016.
The Disney Australia and New Zealand Cultural Exchange Program has reopened after a pandemic-induced closure, and the following students will start in January 2023:
“The latest group to join the Disney family are an eclectic group of students from four different degrees, confirming that Disney embraces diversity and opportunities for all,” ICMS WIL Professional Placement and Alumni Manager Natalie Harrison said.
Excitement is building
The Disney internship is just one of ICMS’ internships offered to all students undertaking an undergraduate or postgraduate degree at the award-winning higher education institution located in Northern Beaches, Sydney, NSW, and in the city of Sydney.
“It is so exciting that I can travel overseas to work for one of the world’s biggest entertainment companies as part of my degree. This opportunity is allowing me to work the attractions at one of Disney’s four parks, where I have the second role of working for ESPN Wide World of Sports. This whole process, in relation to the Work Integrated Learning (WIL) team have been so exciting, supportive, and encouraging,” Tahlee said.
WIL offers industry training placements at one of ICMS’ over 1000 industry partners in Australia and abroad, and are tailored to meet individual student’s personalised career goals. Industry training are internships built into every degree at ICMS, meaning students graduate with relevant work experience and ready to pursue their professional goals.
Life-changing industry training experience
Students who have participated in the Disney internship before have had the chance to be part of a world renowned entertainment company, learn skills from Disney leaders, meet people from around the world and take part in a life-changing experience.
Previous ICMS students have been recognised for their contribution to the Disney experience by being awarded accolades such as ‘Team Member of the Season’, while some have graduated with micro credentials from the Disney Institute and even offered further employment.
“The next intake of students will be in August 2023. Discuss these opportunities with your professional placement consultant,” Harrison said.
