Real-world experience

'I was offered a job at EY after completing a vacation program with them. So many things we did in assignments at QUT were applicable to the work I was doing at EY, so my degree definitely prepared me for my career.'

Hands-on learning

'QUT provided me with the perfect platform to become an entrepreneur. Throughout my degree I had opportunities to network and build my connections. I made sure that I attended events organised by all the business societies when possible. Simple things like attending QUT Accountancy Students' Association events meant that I knew the people within the society, and had a network of contacts when I started my own business.'
