I decided to study the Master of Management because my brother and I started working on a new project, called The Hangar. It’s effectively a multi-purpose hospitality venue that can be best described as an espresso garden. Due to the size of the project, I wanted to be as prepared as I could be entering the venture, and so I decided to up-skill myself in business. I didn’t do my undergraduate degree in business, so I was excited that the Master of Management would be able to teach me the fundamentals of business theory and practice.
I enjoyed studying my undergraduate degree at the University of Sydney, so it made sense to return to complete my postgraduate studies. The access to the careers centre and its resources, the academics at the university, and its open space campuses were the key reasons for me choosing the University of Sydney. The Master of Management is ranked number one in Australia, and this ultimately influenced my decision to undergo the program.
I think the most rewarding thing about the program is that it doesn’t just teach you the fundamentals of business theory, but you will undergo practical experience surrounding strategy, innovation, quantitative analysis and most importantly, a process of self-reflection where you can really identify your strengths, weaknesses and biases.
I appreciate how all the students come from different backgrounds, different fields of study, and they all bring something different to the table. You are constantly learning, not just from the teachers, but from the people around you.
If you want postgraduate qualifications that will give you deeper understanding into the different elements of business, management and leadership, in addition to expanding your network with people that are highly driven, well then this course would be a suitable fit as it really exposes you to the realities of the business environment.
I’ve got two main goals for my future and believe the Master of Management will help me achieve both of these. First, I would like to secure a role within management consulting within the events and/or sporting industry, and second, I would like to develop my business venture into one that is highly valuable to its community, and one that can achieve great scale.
The Master of Management program gives opportunity to students to be placed into real life scenarios, by preparing consulting briefs and strategy recommendations to selected companies, with the pursuit to solve existing and future problems. The tools and frameworks we learn in the classroom are able to be directly translated into the real world.
