Global Intellect

What is the Global Intellect Program?

The Global Intellect Program is a virtual, two-week program enabling Victoria-based exporters to gain market research advice from teams of international and domestic university students currently studying in Victoria.

Tap into Victoria's deep talent pool of international students – at no cost to you

Our Program gives you the opportunity to tap into Victoria's vast network of smart, and diverse future leaders who have a robust understanding of international markets.

Each company who participates will be provided a group of students (hand selected by us) to work on delivering valuable market research for their organisation.

Students are guided through an online structured market research process, which will generate valuable insights and data relevant to your brief. Teams will collectively put in over 150 hours to work on your project.

At no cost to you or your business, the Global Intellect Program offers a viable solution to value add international market research projects for your business.

What are people saying about the Global Intellect Program?

‘The report has exceeded my expectations and I would like to thank the team for their excellent work. Happy to participate again in future projects' Buller Wines – exporting to Japan

‘This is by far the best presentation I have seen under this program. Whereas we are not in the logistics industry per se, the market, competitor, and potential client information is excellent. The format is also excellent, really well designed’ prophit – software company exporting to Malaysia

How does it work?

Registering your business to take part in the Global Intellect Program is a simple and easy online process:

  1. Register your interest.
  2. Teams of international students with relevant backgrounds and interests from participating universities will address your brief during a two-week time frame.
  3. You'll receive a notification online once a team has been assigned to your brief.
  4. When complete, we'll provide you with a market research report developed by the student teams.
  5. We'll then ask you to provide feedback to your student team.
How much commitment is expected from me?

We get that running a business is more than a full-time job. That's why we offer flexibility around the level of your commitment to the Global Intellect Program. You choose the extent of engagement with the students, and it's entirely your choice to rate the students’ work and engagement of the Global Intellect Program.
