Where does an international business administration degree take you?

Consultant, Deloitte Australia | Master of International Business ’20

“I love the synergy of business and social development to bring about meaningful change,” says Lisa.

Lisa had the opportunity to develop her skills in this area through the Social Entrepreneurship study unit, which enabled her to travel to Eden to work with local stakeholders such as the Aboriginal Land Council to build a tourism-based social enterprise.

“The goal was to create jobs for Aboriginal people and to promote Aboriginal heritage in the area,” says Lisa.

“We used the historic Bundian Trail, a 35 km hiking trail through major Aboriginal cultural sites, to propose a tour-based model that enables local Aboriginal people to share the region’s cultural significance through storytelling and earn an income from walking of tours. “

During her studies at the University of Sydney, Lisa also gained real industry experience through a summer internship at Deloitte. After Lisa’s completion of her international business studies, the internship led directly to a full-time position at the consulting company.
