This is what our past interns are saying about their experience with the Marco Polo Project.

Wenfei Tu, Bachelors of Accounting from Latrobe University

“Since 2012 mid-November, I have been interning with Marco Polo Project.
The program completely turned my university career around. I went from being a scared freshman and worrying about the “real world,” to being excited about starting my career. For the first time in my life, I am not worried about performing professionally in the business world after graduation.”

Linan Zhong, Bachelors of Accounting from Latrobe University

“Macro Polo Project and all the colleagues will remain in my mind forever. Really had a great time and enjoyed working for this meaningful project.”

Ali Aziz, Bachelors of Accounting & Finance from Melbourne University

“As the project sounds innovative, it provides a never lasting experience of the work done in friendly environment during the internships, and also enables a person to think out of the box to complete the task appropriately. This platform also provides international students and the locals to come in together, know more about different cultures and obviously work on integrating the cultures of the Chinese people and the western world.”
