    Bachelor of Arts – Bachelor of Business

    This course was a perfect combination of practical business skills and creativity. One of the highlights was the opportunity to travel to Malaysia for 6 weeks through the Work Integrated Learning placement. I met some amazing people and got closer to my workplace aspirations – it was an experience I’ll never forget.
