Business placements in Nepal

Nepal offers incredible opportunities for working in a small but thriving country.

Our Business placements in Nepal enable you to use your skills to make a valuable contribution in one of the world’s poorest countries.

Our Covid-19 Guarantee gives you reassurance and helps you plan ahead in turbulent times. 

Your business placement in Nepal

All interns joining our business placements in Nepal work at a well respected management consultancy based in Kathmandu, the thriving capital city of Nepal. 

You will have the opportunity of working in all areas of the business, from Finance to Marketing, HR to ISO training with clients.

Previous interns have helped with various client projects which involved staff training, market research for new products going to launch and foreign direct investment.

After accepting you on the Nepal programme you will Skype with our colleagues in Nepal to ensure your work is tailored to your personal skills and interests.

Business placements in Nepal are available to students and recent graduates of Business-related degrees, such as:

  • Business Administration & Management
  • Finance / Accounting
  • International Business
  • Human Resources Management
  • Marketing

If you have a different background then please email your CV to so we can check your eligibility. 

Professional training

You will have a work supervisor throughout your placement. This is normally the head of department you work in.

Your work supervisor is the main “go-to” person for all your work-related queries. They will explain your role when you arrive in Nepal, arrange your work schedule, give you feedback on your work and answer all your questions which arise at work.

Many of your work colleagues in Nepal have lived and studied MBA’s in the UK, they speak very good English and are quite westernised which really helps a smooth integration in the work place. 

Work hard and impress your colleagues and you may be offered opportunities you never expected.

Orientations & Staff support

One of our colleagues in Nepal will meet you on arrival at Kathmandu international airport to welcome you to the programme.

You’ll normally arrive on a Friday and will be taken to your accommodation and shown around your local area. We’ll help you buy a SIM card, and give you some general information about living in Nepal. Then you can spend the weekend relaxing, catching up on sleep and exploring. 

On Monday you’ll be met by one of your friendly work colleagues who will take you to work and and give you a thorough orientation.

We’ll be in touch with you frequently to check how you’re getting on and we’re on hand 24/7 for emergencies. If you join as part of your degree we will also communicate directly with your university Placement Office or Employability Office when necessary.

Health and safety

Your safety is our first priority.

We complete comprehensive checks before you arrive and if you join as part of your degree, we will help ensure that your university health and safety documents are checked and signed by your business placement in Nepal.

This means your university is able to verify the work placement meets their criteria. We work directly with universities on this.
