Industry: Murdoch University Graduate (2023)
Programme taken: Master of Professional Accounting
Being the Director of 2 companies with almost 1,000 regular clients, it was important that I managed my schedule well. By setting aside different hours for working, studying and spending time with my children, I managed to juggle both work and studies. However, the most challenging period for me was when I was pregnant with my fourth child during my second year of study. I was close to giving up on the course, but thankfully, I pushed on.
On top of the personal satisfaction of this academic achievement, I believe that having a Master’s Degree will not only boost my company’s image but also increase the confidence levels that clients have in my company.
The Master of Professional Accounting has enabled me to gain exemptions for the CPA Australia certification. I am therefore able to achieve another level of education and professional recognition in the Accounting industry. While taking the CPA programme, I found myself being able to advise our clients on matters relating to regulations in Australia and Singapore.
I have seen the value of this Postgraduate Degree and will continue to encourage my staff to further upgrade themselves with Kaplan.

Programme taken: Bachelor of Information Technology in Mobile and Web Application Development and Cyber Security and Forensics (Double Major)
I chose to enrol in the Diploma in Information Technology (IT) with Kaplan as I have always been interested in how technology works. Upon graduating from this programme, I knew I had to further my studies to expand my knowledge and decided to enrol at Murdoch University. My Kaplan Diploma granted me exemptions and I could proceed straight to Year 2 of the Degree programme.
Pursuing this Degree has equipped me with niche skills that are necessary to stand out professionally. Some of the lessons applicable to my career include practical cyber security and IT knowledge. Furthermore, I was also taught critical analysis and problem-solving skills and learned how to tackle problems in the real world independently.
I had plenty to learn at the University, and my Degree enabled me to secure my job. In fact, I have recommended Murdoch University to my best friend who will be enrolling in 2023.
