Bachelor of Business Administration

"The Bachelor of Business Administration was great as it gave me a range of skills to confidently move about in my career. It is a flexible degree and responsive to changing industry priorities.

Macquarie University supported me in getting internships during my studies. I was able to complete internships at:

  • Sun Microsystems
  • Macquarie Group
  • Procter and Gamble in Singapore.

These opportunities helped me to build upon everything I was learning at university and really put my knowledge to the test in the real world. I have no doubt the experience I gained through my internships helped me secure my first role with the Department of Environment, as well as my current role as a Senior Research Analyst/Assistant Manager Australian Communications and Media Authority."
