Careers of the future

Careers of the future

Even the experts can’t agree on what the jobs of
the future are most likely to be.

What can you do to ensure that when you graduate you are ready to step into a job that will start you on a journey to a satisfying career?

Study a field with a future

Take cyber security, for example. A third of Australian businesses have already been the victims of cyber crime, meaning cyber security experts are in demand worldwide.
Macquarie’s innovative Bachelor of Security Studies combines units from computing with those from security studies and criminology to give students practical insights into technology risks and countermeasures and the role that security management plays in the bigger picture of cyber governance.

We also offer postgraduate courses, including a Graduate Diploma and Master of Cyber-Security, Policing, Intelligence and Counter Terrorism that will give you insights into policing, intelligence, counter terrorism and cyber security issues in both national and international contexts.

Get practical know-how while you’re studying

Working is about more than applying the discipline-specific knowledge you learned in your degree. Macquarie will help you master the art of fitting in while standing out through our Professional and Community Engagement (PACE) program, where you’ll complete an internship giving you the chance to apply your lecture room knowledge, while getting the polish needed for career success.

Surround yourself with inspiring people

Passionate people are inspiring. It doesn’t matter what they’re passionate about, their enthusiasm is infectious. Macquarie University is part of the Macquarie Park Innovation District, Australia’s premier innovation hub. And through our close relationship with the world-leading brands on our doorstep we can introduce our students to businesses and experiences that no other university can offer.

Be open to new experiences

At Macquarie we offer our students a huge diversity of great experiences that will engage your senses and open your mind. We’ll be there to nurture and support you all the way so that you get the best out of everything you try, from our Study Abroad and International Exchange Programs to our Professional and Community Engagement (PACE) and Global Leadership Programs.
