Daniel Camacho — Colombia
Master of Business Administration
I chose to study in Australia because its universities and colleges are respected worldwide for their high quality of education and research. Most importantly, the Australian education system promotes innovative, creative and independent thinking in its students. International students also have the opportunity to get valuable work experience off campus with local companies and businesses. Lastly, Australian qualifications are recognised internationally, making you highly sought after by employers everywhere.
The MBA program at the Sydney Business School (SBS) has broadened my academic horizons. It has also enriched my managerial and problem-solving skills. The academic staff have been encouraging and made my experience enjoyable and productive. As an international student, I have really enjoyed the multicultural element at the SBS. The MBA program allows you to develop a range of key managerial competencies, focusing on Australian, Asian and global business issues.
Wollongong is a relaxed coastal city on the beautiful south coast of New South Wales. What I like most about Wollongong is the comfortable rural living style mixed with sophisticated modern facilities in a lively and growing multicultural scene. I have found it an incredible place to live and study. On summer mornings I’ll go for a swim at the beach and study in the afternoons. In winter, I like go bike riding around Mt Ousley, where you’ll often see kangaroos.
Australia is one of the most multicultural nations in the world, offering a diversity of experiences and one of the highest living standards in the world. I’ve found it interesting to see how the West and East
get along together in Australia. I strongly recommend living and studying in Australia because of its high quality of education and good lifestyle. Studying in Australia has been the experience of a lifetime for me!
