Pranav Ramji – Master of Management (Accounting and Finance)

I finished my undergrad in 2008 and ever since then, I’ve been working. I’ve not had the opportunity or luxury to entertain the option of studying again but studying a Masters allowed me to identify that my technical ability was not accurate after the 9 years that I had worked at. I was interacting with professionals that were technically very sound and I realised that I needed to study more to get ahead and find the right trajectory for my career which drove me to do a Masters program.

Maria S. Cruz – Master of International Business

Finding a job in a foreign country requires some serious resilience and grit. My journey is and continues to be supported by clear priorities and a good understanding of my competitive advantage which helped me narrow and define employers. Most importantly, the understanding helped me understand what impact I can make for the employer. That helped tremendously in my journey and is a driver of my joys of working at Bank Australia.

Nadia Okraglik- Master of Management (Marketing)

I was involved in a range of different things while at uni, but I think my involvement in MBSSA was probably the one that I cherish the most. I started off as the Social Media Officer, and then I went on to become the Marketing Director. I also worked as an Event Manager after doing that because I thought hadn’t quite got enough of it yet. I think that’s one thing that uni really prepared me well for. Read More

Cindy Cupri- Master of Management (Marketing)

I was very interested in customer-centric learning, and studying marketing I believed would be a good window into gaining more knowledge about the field. I would say that the practical approach of the subjects within the degree, is something that I appreciate the most. There was a chance for students to learn the real-world applications of what they are being taught in the class, and I feel that is really important in preparing you for the professional world.

Nicholas Taylor – Master of Commerce

Reflecting on my time at University, one thing that there was a strong focus on digging deeper analytically, rather than purely rote learning answers (which is still important). Lecturers focused on teaching us  how to think, rather than what to think, which was incredibly formative. In a professional context, where rote learned answers are few and far between, these skills have been incredibly helpful in structuring, analysing and ultimately solving complex problems. Read More

Darshan Pawani- Master of Management (Marketing)

There are so many opportunities for students to enrich their life on campus at the Melbourne Business School, no matter where your interests lie, there’s something for everyone. During my time as a student, I was involved in all sorts of student activities; I was involved with numerous clubs and societies, and I even participated in several panel discussions. Read More
