QUT gave me the fundamental skills to kickstart my career as well as the practical skills to shine in the business graduate saturated market. QUT's career development programs, internships and mentorship programs definitely gave me an edge over the rest.'
'I loved that the way we learnt was practical in real-world situations. QUT encourages all students to proactively reach out to companies and mentors.
