For the past three years, M&C Saatchi LA has partnered with the United States Studies Centre at the University of Sydney to bring in students from Australia to experience what it is like to work in an agency setting. Students from the University of Sydney Business School and the University of Western Australia’s Business School are eligible for the nine-week placement program.
In conjunction with UCLA Extension, M&C Saatchi LA is hosting three students for an immersive study abroad and internship program. During the program, for which students receive academic credits, an USSC academic advisor provides coursework and academic support. M&C Saatchi LA takes the selected candidates through life at the agency, introducing them to real world projects and programs developed by the agency on behalf of clients.
The LA Placement Program offers business undergraduates the opportunity to study, work and live in one of the most dynamic cities in the world. Designed for aspiring business leaders, the program offers a head start to a career, by combining study in American business and leadership skills, with a professional placement.
“Feedback from past interns has been extremely positive, and some of the past interns have now started a career in advertising, thanks to the experience they had with M&C Saatchi LA,” comments Erickson Ilog, M&C Saatchi LA EVP – Director of Finance and Operations.
