“I love interacting with people and working in an environment where I get to learn a lot about banking and business. For someone entering the workforce after university who wants to continue learning, it definitely suits me.

“I started off in my first year doing the core courses and not fully knowing what I wanted to major in. I initially wanted to do economics but I later found out I really enjoyed working in the operations and supply chain space after the first two years of my degree.

“Operations and Supply Chain Management really sparked my interest. You understand everything from the beginning, where something is produced, to the consumer receiving the end product.

“Marketing complements that by enabling you to promote your product or service in the right way and ensures the right customers are aware of it.

“When I started my degree, I thought I might end up working for a big logistics company or doing consultancy work. But with a degree majoring in Operations and Supply Chain Management you can literally work in any industry that you want.

“I am now working in the banking industry where I am focused on learning a lot more about how ANZ operates as a bank and how we can help communities thrive.

“A lot of students don’t know what their passion is or what they really want to pursue. Business gives you the opportunity to get exposed to a lot of subjects in the early years of your degree, which will help you find out what you enjoy doing or want to pursue in future. I definitely encourage you to give it a go.”
