Ghana to benefit from SIBC internship programme

By GBN

Ghana is one of the countries that would benefit from a Student International Business Council (SIBC) internship programme this year.

The SIBC will send about 25 students to countries all over the world including Thailand, the United Kingdom and Belize to work on business and humanitarian projects this summer, the Observeronline has reported quoting Matt Brownschidle SIBC president.

“I think this year, the internships are going to be more competitive because the market is more competitive,” he said.

The SIBC internship program offers positions primarily to freshmen and sophomores every year, but Brownschidle said receiving an internship will be more competitive this year than in previous years.

Generally, freshman and sophomores make up the majority of the applicants, but it is likely that more juniors will be in the applicant pool because the economy makes it much harder to obtain summer internships this year, Brownschidle said Sunday.

The Student International Business Council (SIBC) will send about 25 students to countries all over the world, including Thailand, Ghana, the United Kingdom and Belize, to work on business and humanitarian projects this summer, SIBC president Matt Brownschidle said Sunday.

When reviewing the applications, which are due Feb. 13, the SIBC board will look for students who show initiative, since the projects they will tackle require self-motivation, and they prefer students who have shown a dedication to SIBC and participated in the club's projects in the past, Brownschidle said. More than anything, participation in SIBC projects give students the skills they need to be successful in their internships, he said.

Brownschidle was quoted by the website as saying the internships give students international business experience that they would not generally be exposed to.
