Bachelor of Commerce

A Bachelor of Commerce and a Master of Financial Planning put John O'Brien in the driving seat from the moment his career took off in the finance industry. After focusing on finance and risk management during his studies at Griffith, he felt fully primed in the technical aspects of forecasting, investing and financial markets.

'As students we were exposed to current industry knowledge in the classroom', says John, who is a partner at Visis Private Wealth. 'Some of our lecturers were also practitioners in the field.'

Bachelor of Business

As an economist at the industry leading firm Deloitte Access Economics, Emily Hayward credits her time at Griffith Business School as a major driving force behind her love for environmental economics.

'Griffith opened my eyes up to how economics can be used to create meaningful change in a number of different ways' Emily explains.

Bachelor of Government and International Relations

Government and International Relations graduate Zahar Martin has always had a passion for cars, so when the opportunity arose for him to apply for a graduate role in the automotive industry, he jumped on it, especially since the role would focus on HR.

Zahar says that his time at Griffith played a crucial role in him landing such a prized position.

Bachelor of International Tourism and Hotel Management

The knowledge gained while studying international tourism, hotel management and business management at Griffith is now playing its part for Gala Gordon-Burns.

'I am constantly finding I’m applying areas learnt within my degree to everyday situations and challenges.'

Bachelor of Asian Studies

Studying a degree in Asian Studies has reinforced Estelle McCabe's interest and appreciation of Asian business, culture and history and is positioning her strongly to pursue a career in Japan. Her ambition to work as a communications specialist fostering Japanese—Australian relations in the resources sector was also boosted by a New Colombo Plan Scholarship.

'I'm confident that living, learning and working in Japan will improve and develop not only my Japanese language but also my negotiation skills by improving fluency and understanding of the spoken word.'
