"I enrolled into Griffith's undergraduate program as I was captivated by its renowned teaching quality and flexible course structure. I attempted three different majors before attending Griffith and I did not possess strong business foundation. Nonetheless, I was able to learn and transit smoothly despite the program progressed intensively. The course arrangements encouraged integration and critical application, and the meticulous structure of the double major program was critical to my success. This program enabled me to explore and develop skills which I did not possess prior to my enrollment. I took part in the university’s mentor program, two-way exchange program, and acted as a student representative for my cohort. These activities provided robust platforms for my development of strong leadership, communication skills, and negotiation skills. These soft skills have propelled my career, and I am very thankful for the opportunity."

“The student activities, like the Golf Day, Career Seminars, and Industry Forums, enriched my study life and extended my personal network. The exclusive on-campus job interview arranged particularly for top-up degree students with famous multinational companies gave me valuable exposure to the real business world in a global context. The special care of my Academic Advisor and the timely support of the Programme staff are always in my mind! Many thanks for Griffith University and CUSCS!”

Graduate, Bachelor of Business (Management), 2009-10
“Studying a postgraduate degree with Griffith University has allowed me to adapt to Australian culture, which has dramatically increased my employment opportunities.
Besides the amazing experience of living in Australia, the knowledge I gained from my studies at Griffith University has been invaluable. My lecturers encouraged discussion and debate in class, which has given me very valuable negotiation skills I can use in a work environment. Also, studying in a cohort of students from 36 different countries has enabled great discussions around differences in business cultures, as well as the political and economic issues.
Although it was a tough decision to study overseas, it has been well worth it.”
