Why are you participating in the "Augustana in Australia" program?

I am participating in the "Augustana in Australia" program in order to gain experience in the work field as well as have a study abroad experience.  As an Accounting major business is very international, it will be beneficial to learn about accounting concepts and then apply them in another country.

What value do you hope to add back to the internship site?

I hope to add my experience and tell others about everything I learned and accomplished while in Australia.

What do you hope to learn on your internship?

I hope to learn the ins and outs of and Accountant.  I want to take the knowledge I have learned here on campous about accounting and directly apply it to the work field.  I also hope to learn more about the international side of accounting.

Where do you plan to travel during your term "down under?"

Besides sighseeing around Sydney, I plan to travel to New Zealand.  Being able to travel to both of these countries will be a dream come true.

What do you anticipate to be the highlight of your experience "down under?"

The highlight of my experience will be able to gain work experience while being able to study abroad and sightsee around a country I have always wanted to travel to.  Thanks to Augustana this opportunity has been made possible.
