Louise Hojsager

Griffith Health Services Management Graduate

For Danish graduate Louise Hojsager her year at Griffith University brought some welcome and warm relief from the pains and strains of the global financial downturn and the Scandinavian climate. She also returned to Europe with her public health qualifications enhanced by a Master of Health Services Management from Griffith University. 'I had started to think about possible jobs after graduating but the global financial crisis made it pretty difficult to get a job,' Louise said. 'I did not want to do what everyone else did and go to Australia but my boyfriend convinced me that I would love it. He was absolutely right.'

With constant expansion, diversification and specialisation, there are many avenues for management careers, and many general and specialist management roles for people at national and international levels.
