    Nora Lundstroem

    Bachelor of Business and Environmental Science

    I choose to study at JCU in Townsville because of its world class education and location – warm and sunny weather all year long, and right on the Great Barrier Reef! On graduation, I hope to get a job within sustainability consulting or investment banking in Australia or England.
