Master of International Business graduate
Senior Account Manager at Google
"Macquarie University gives you the skills to work in a multinational, diverse, global organisation. The large diversity of students and professors you will interact with will help you learn how to bring out the best in your colleagues, and leverage that to make the right decisions for your company and for your career."
Master of Criminology
"I am currently in my first semester of Master of Criminology focusing more on forensic psychology and cyber security. Macquarie’s atmosphere and opportunity availability is what has kept me here - and the teachers actually have experience. In my current course, for example, one of my lecturers is a former policeman. I find being taught by people with real-world experience drives me to work harder."
"It is a challenge to juggle my busy workload, but I believe that you can always push yourself beyond expectations. My advice is to invest more into the future, and not listen to people who say you have to focus on one thing - the sky’s the limit."
"An internship is what sets you apart from everybody else and helps you become a professional. I completed my internship at the Export Council of Australia and it was a really good experience, especially in terms of networking. It made me more confident and prepared me for what was waiting for me after uni. I’m now working in client management at Macquarie Group."
Master of Environmental Planning graduate
Graduate Diploma of Sustainable Development graduate
"I still vividly remember how excited I was when I got my scholarship offer from Macquarie. The environment has always been my passion, so I never really thought about pursuing a more conventional degree."
"The lecturers I had at Macquarie were very knowledgeable. One of the highlights of my time at Macquarie was getting to go on some amazing field trips to explore the Australian flora and fauna.
The scholarship really motivated me to keep up the good work at university. It definitely helped me both financially and professionally."
Master of Science with a specialisation in Chemical and Biomolecular Sciences Innovation
"I found the Master of Science at Macquarie incorporated a lot of what I'd done in the past in one great combination. I came to explore not only the sciences but how to practically use these sciences in industry, which was the main driver for me choosing this course.
There's also a lot of innovation going on at Macquarie, so it seemed like a natural choice."
Master of Public Health
"I chose to study the Master of Public Health for its variety and flexibility. The program covers a wide range of current health focus topics including environmental and global health, leadership, and disease prevention. Within the first semester we have already covered work in ethical consideration, research evaluation, and research methods."
"And it has gone further than providing a taster of the units to come – the course has provided in-depth engagement and learning of core concepts needed in all areas of prospective health professions, complementing the diversity of careers this degree readies you for.
I hope to progress in the direction of health leadership, but being passionate in all areas of health I enjoy the diverse focus this course offers. I highly recommend this course to aspiring health professionals because of the core content offered, covering current world health issues and the exceptional quality of teaching provided by health industry professionals."
