When I commenced my studies, I was already working full-time in the Defence industry as both an engineer and a manager. I have been able to use my ongoing employment as context for learning and immediately put into practise the theory that I have learnt. The Master of Management was fundamental in preparing me to pursue career opportunities. I am now prepared to approach my current and future work opportunities with open eyes.
