“I’ve studied a mix of both online and on-campus – when I was not working, I definitely enrolled in face to face classes, as I enjoyed the experience of learning and bonding with a small group of peers. As my life has gotten a little busier, I’ve moved to more online classes, as this allows a flexibility andcuts my commute into the campus. Both study modes have their benefits and their downfalls, and you just have to experiment, explore and find what works best for you.
Throughout my course I did work placement.The most significant and interesting part about gaining work experience whilst studying, is seeing the tangible, real-life implementation of the theory you are being introduced to. Having both a theoretical base and practical experience in thebusiness world is invaluable to your growth in any professional sphere.”
“I chose to study at Torrens University Australia as it was a different structure unlike other universities, whereby it allowed me to work at my own pace being a fully online student. As part of my course, I completed a work placement at William Blue Dining, where my highlights included setting the foundations for their social media presence. The most rewarding part was being with teams that I enjoyed working with, helping deliver content and further developing my skills of working in a team autonomously.”
“My course is 100% online so I don’t have to go to any campuses. I attend all lectures and watch all of the tutorials online. For me this works perfectly - while running my own business I don’t think I would have the capacity to actually go to campus and attend classes. The fact that I have been able to do everything online and study in my own time means I have the capacity to run the business, still have a life and study at the same time.
Once I looked at the curricula of the MBA I realised that everything that was going to be taught across the duration of the degree was really going to help me run my business, not only in the next five to ten years, but really help the business flourish and grow right now.”
