15 Oct 2010
People looking to advance their knowledge, enhance their careers or keen to take their career in a new direction were among the 200+ guests that attended the Faculty of Economics and Business postgraduate information evening last night at the Hilton Hotel, Sydney.
Fifty faculty academic and administrative staff were on hand to provide one-on-one advice to prospective students and their families who attended.
Associate Dean (Postgraduate), Professor John Shields, who presented at the event said,"The level of interest shown in existing and new programs was very promising and we are looking forward to welcoming many of these people to the faculty as enrolled students in 2011."
There was particularly strong interest in the Global Executive MBA and the revitalised Master of Commerce programs and great interest in the showcase presentation from the Director of the Master of Marketing program, Dr Pennie Frow.
In addition to Dr Frow's presentation, guests heard from Master of Commerce student Andrew Knevitt who gave up a career in hospitality to embark on a career in business Information Systems; and Radha Sharma who gave students an insightful perspective on what it's like to be a student of the faculty.
