Business students showcase projects to ANL

Business students showcase projects to ANL

Last week, two groups of students from the College of Business and Law had the unique opportunity to present to the Executive Team from ANL CMA CGM.

ANL CMA CGM is a shipping network specialising in moving product to and from Oceania and beyond.

As a culmination to their semester-long work integrated learning (WIL) project, College of Business and Law students worked on specific proposals to present to ANL CMA CGM executives.

Working in multidisciplinary teams, accounting student and logistics sudents conducted a review of the Melbourne Metro intermodal terminals, including a financial and sustainability analysis.

Master of Business IT students worked closely with multiple ANL stakeholders to deliver a digital dashboard for their Container Depot based in Altona.

Not only were students required to present their proposals, but they also had to answer questions from ANL’s most senior leaders to really put their ideas to the test!

Final year Professional Accounting student, Mitchell Harkin, said working with ANL was not only an amazing experience but also gave him valuable insight into one of the world’s most important industries. 

“I’m incredibly grateful for the opportunity to present to their executive team," he said.

"This has helped me improve my presentation and critical thinking skills as well as experience what it is like to present to top-level management – all of which I’ll be taking into the working world."

“Thank you to Victor, Vlad, ANL and RMIT for this once in a lifetime project."

In total across semester two, ANL provided RMIT students with three industry-based projects. 

To support their learning students were able to attend one of two ANL site visits - one to the Altona Container Depot and the other to the Somerton Intermodal Terminal - giving them unrivalled insight into the day-to-day operation of the international shipping and logistics operator.

Victor Borg, Course Coordinator from the School of Accounting, Information Systems and Supply Chains said the projects provided by ANL provided students with a tremendous WIL experience, benefiting both their learning and supporting their future careers. 

“ANL’s support throughout the project life cycle was above and beyond my expectations," he said.

"ANL made a significant contribution to WIL and to the industry partner relationship with RMIT."
