Global Trade Accelerator (Australia) (Real industry feedback, up to 3 weeks, 2 hours video content, 4 assessments)



This app supports a multinational team of students to engage in a short project to address an international market research brief from one of 30+ real Australian exporters. GTA is supported by Austrade, the Export Council of Australia, the Global Trade Professionals Alliance, the NSW and Queensland State Governments. Educators provide student teams of 5-6 able to undertake approximately 25 hours of work over a short 1-3 week period. There is no expectation the team is co-located or meeting with the client. The app comes with a real client exporter brief per team, and learners are supported with practical content and instructions to form teams and complete 1 deliverable in draft and final report f. Learners undertake self reflection & peer 360 degree evaluations, and a final reflection. The industry client reviews the draft deliverable and is expected to provide online feedback on at least the final report. If feedback is not provided by industry, a professional Practera mentor will do so.
