'I recently returned from completing the START MIT program with QUT Entrepreneurship. Aside from getting a once-in-a-lifetime chance to visit MIT, I was able to experience a surprisingly different culture and environment, meet and network with people within different industries, and learn valuable entrepreneurship skills from a number of incredible venture capitalists and founders I would never have had the opportunity to meet on my own.'
'Over the course of my studies, I had the opportunity to attend an internship and interview multiple businesses to help them develop business strategies all as a part of my studies. Through these hands on, real-world experiences, I learned so many valuable experiences and skills and felt ready to take on the workplace before I even graduated.'
