GSM Alumni and MBA Graduate
Studying the MBA at La Trobe University gave me a big chance to obtain a different but very effective teaching and learning method in the international schooling environment. This included the experience of group work with friends from different cultures and backgrounds as well as individual tasks to be done via active personal effort. Furthermore, I was trained to build up self-confidence thanks to presentations and class discussions.
Besides, the University environment is so good for foreign students like me that I could totally enjoy. In fact the pure scenery with green trees, birds, lake and appropriate facilities enabled me to ease my study while being far away from home. I also highly appreciate the student support which is willing to assist new students at their early stage from their accommodation to habitual behavior in the new environment. This is the reason why I feel safe, sociable and enjoyable with friendly treatment from everybody at La Trobe.
