“Flinders Business provides a learning experience which goes far beyond theory. I am planning to undertake an internship and consulting project this semester. I’ll have the opportunity to put what I have learnt in the classroom into practice. It will be great to understand how a real company works. Studying at Flinders is a truly international experience with the diversity of lecturers and students I get to interact with each day. Not only has the Master of Business helped me move up in my career but also help me create lifelong friendships.”
