ECA PROFESSIONAL YEAR PREMIUM PROGRAM

ECA Professional Year (PY) has delivered successful outcomes for almost 6,000 graduates since 2008 to a high conversion to full-time employment.

Exclusive to ECA’s PY, the Premium Career Launch Program is founded on the confidence we have that our student’s internship
placement through the ECA PY will result in a professional job offer or a new start-up business in Australia.

As entrepreneurship skills are vital in today’s business landscape, the PY Premium Career Launch Program includes an invaluable
4-day Entrepreneurship Start-up Accelerator Workshop delivered by a list of industry leaders FREE OF CHARGE and access to a
2-day Incubation Workshop along with access to a seed funding pool.

These are all in addition to the PY course and internship placement you receive as part of the PY.
