Programme taken: Double Masters – Master of Business Administration – Master of Human Resources Management

Murdoch University Graduate (2021)

I wanted to add value to myself by learning relevant knowledge and skills, so after researching, I decided to pursue a Double Master’s Degree (Master of Business Administration and Master of Human Resources Management) with Murdoch University as it was the best choice for me.

I think the Postgraduate Degree was necessary to help me get ahead in my career. Without a doubt, it has given me an edge over my colleagues. Having the Degree is a justification to my capabilities as an individual for future career opportunities.

During the programme, I juggled work and studies by managing my time and priorities carefully. This experience helped me in many areas. My time management improved, along with my ability to prioritise. It also instilled in me a greater sense of discipline to finish my tasks within the scheduled time frames, even during difficult periods. One of the most surprising benefits is increased self-confidence, as I can look back and reflect on how I earned my masters because of the effort I had put into achieving that goal despite the many hurdles I had to overcome.

When I finally graduated, it evoked a very fulfilling sense of achievement and I am happy to have pursued the Double Master’s Degree with Murdoch, which provided me with the knowledge and support I needed.

My advice to those who are thinking of pursuing a Postgraduate Degree is this: Everyday we face changes and new demands. As the world becomes more competitive, investing in ourselves will be the best investment and you can do so by securing a Master’s Degree to develop yourself to stay competitive and relevant.

Murdoch University Student (2021)

I chose Murdoch University for the better academic structure, which has a good balance of assignments and exams as well as useful modules.

The Degree has helped me realise what I want out of my current career and how I can achieve it. It has also taught me the skills required to learn to lead and manage a team, as well as to think from the organisation’s perspective.

Our assignments are well-paced and do not affect our work. The lecturers have always been very helpful and approachable as they are always open to us contacting them if we have any enquiries. The knowledgeable lecturers also ensure that we understand what we are being taught during lectures and help us keep track of our assignment checkpoints.

I would recommend Murdoch to others because I feel that it is a reputable University with a very organised and easy to follow course structure. The timetable is flexible, which is good for part-time students such as myself who are juggling school with full-time work.

Programme taken: Double Masters – Master of Business Administration – Master of Human Resources Management

Murdoch University Graduate (2021)

I believe that pursuing an MBA is necessary to help one get ahead in their career and open up better opportunities for them. Knowing how to manage firms, businesses and capital is key to gaining industry exposure and developing business ideas.

The Double Masters programme, encompassing the Master of Business Administration and the Master of Human Resources Management, has helped me to build my human resources skill set. Having this Degree, combined with the benefits of an MBA focused on human resources management, has enabled me to set myself apart from my peers in this competitive hiring landscape.

The programme has given me unique points of view and helped to address business management strategy and human resource concerns. Indeed, it is a versatile qualification that has taught me how to deal with hiring, training and development as well as general people skills, allowing me to apply my knowledge and skill set professionally.

My favourite aspect of this programme was how it had increased my self-confidence. This accomplishment coupled with the skill set and education gained, may help to improve one’s confidence as they are better able to make their way in the business world and in life.

Furthermore, I have become more versatile and skilled, as most of the soft and hard skills I had acquired from this course, such as analytical and critical thinking, communication, creativity and leadership, are applicable across different industries.

To those who are considering pursuing a Postgraduate Degree, if you are committed enough and aspire to pass it with rainbow colours, you definitely will.

Programme taken: Executive Master in Leadership, Strategy and Innovation (E-Learning)

Murdoch University Graduate (2022)

After 5 years of training in performance subjects, I spent 12 years in the performing arts industry, as a teaching artist, producer and an arts manager. Consequently, my curiosity about the performing arts business grew and wanted to advance in the areas of leadership and strategy. Here, the EMLSI was a great fit. As the pandemic loomed large, the idea of upskilling and expanding my knowledge from the comfort of home became appealing.

Being based in Singapore while still being able to access a highly reputable, international institute (Murdoch University) was a huge plus. I had explored leadership master’s programmes all over the map, but many needed me to move abroad as they were unavailable online, and others required me to vastly reduce the hours I could commit to work. The Murdoch course lined up perfectly with my own schedule and working in the same time zone between Singapore and Perth was ideal.

In any industry, the opportunity to ‘climb the ladder’ stems from your work ethic, knowledge and experience. Within the arts charity sector, it is vital to learn how to run a strong, successful business. Thus, managing an arts business efficiently through effective leadership, clear strategy and harnessing tools for innovation are necessary for continual growth.

As an arts education manager working with a theatre company, I must be able to mentor my team well, demonstrate resilience in the face of uncertainty and be ready to adopt new ways of working. Indeed, the EMLSI not only provided me with a great deal of applicable knowledge and tools, but inspired me to continue learning.

Programme taken: Bachelor of Business in Marketing and Tourism and Events (Double Major)

Murdoch University Student (2021)

Murdoch University was my choice, as my siblings had attained their Degrees with the University and had a very positive experience. Furthermore, the flexible part-time programme is perfect for working adults like me, so we can manage our time and set some aside for our studies.

I decided to pursue a Double Major because having a second major in Marketing would serve as a safeguard, should I want to switch industries or careers.

The two specialisations appealed to my immense interest in Tourism and Events, as well as in Marketing. Furthermore, as Tourism and Marketing are closely linked, a second major in Marketing would enhance and be easy to integrate with the knowledge from my Tourism and Events modules.

As lessons are conducted in the evening, I do not have to worry about missing classes because of my day job. The lecturers are also very understanding of our work commitments. All of this has made my part-time academic journey with Murdoch easier and more enjoyable.

I would recommend Murdoch University to others because of the prestige and recognition of the University’s Degree programmes and certifications, and the flexibility and understanding provided by the University and staff. In addition, the curriculum is constantly being reviewed and updated to ensure that students gain the latest, most relevant knowledge in their respective majors or fields, and I have genuinely enjoyed my academic journey with Murdoch.

I would also recommend the Double Major Degrees with the University, as they are planned such that anyone will be able to cope with the workload. Moreover, they give students an advantage over their single major peers when it comes to career prospects and progression.

Murdoch University Student (2021)

I chose to study with Murdoch University as the programme outline matched what I was looking for to prepare myself for a sales and development management role.

As I work full-time while studying part-time, I appreciate that the curriculum is planned such that the classes are held on alternate weeks. This gives me the flexibility to balance my school, work, family and social commitments. The curriculum also emphasises learning and understanding the lectures via assignments, including post-lecture online activities to help reaffirm our understanding.

Since the lecturers have work experience in various industries, they can relate real situations at the workplace and offer live examples of how we can apply the theories, making them easier for us to understand the logic behind them.

I would recommend Murdoch to others, as the University programmes are designed to suit working adults, where it is not too overwhelming for those who need to juggle family, children and work at the same time. Additionally, there is more knowledge to gain and more friends to make through my Double Major Degree learning journey.

University College Dublin, 1st Class Honours Graduate (2022)

I began my Kaplan education with a Diploma, which laid strong foundations for my transition into pursuing a Bachelor of Business Studies (Honours) (Management) (Top-up) Degree with University College Dublin (UCD).

My path to acquiring a reputable and well-recognised business Degree was clear considering UCD’s Triple Crown accreditation. Also, the University has produced alumni across the globe, with its graduates making an impact in politics, literature and the international business world over the decades.

Participating in the 2019 Kaplan Kickstart Challenge, an internship programme for students to work at start-ups and contribute business ideas for a chance to win prize money, was most memorable. Equipped with analytical, business and operational know-how, and knowledge from studying at Kaplan, I was able to apply this expertise while interning.

As a result, I won the “Best Intern” award in the competition and was offered a full-time role. This has accelerated my career since, allowing me to find my current placement in an American MNC.

Programme taken: Master of Business Administration (MBA)

Northumbria University Graduate (2021)

I was driven to pursue an MBA as I felt stagnant in terms of my level of knowledge and desired a breakthrough in terms of my professional network. The in-depth and stringent MBA programme broadened my knowledge in managing the business with a practical approach, allowing us to apply knowledge learned through the assignments.

Networking is the best part about taking up an MBA. In my cohort, there was a surgeon from a public hospital and there were many students in senior positions in large companies from various fields. This helped me to grow my connections.

My advice to those who are thinking of taking up an MBA is: Don’t think, just do. Taking up an MBA is not just a career-propelling act, but has taught me to prioritise the things I do daily while advancing my knowledge and challenging what I thought I knew, having managed a business for a decade. Furthermore, have an open mind and practice good time management while learning, re-learning and challenging yourself to greater heights.

With a growing percentage of the population holding at least a Bachelor’s Degree, it is imperative to have an MBA to stand out among your peers. From middle management executives to busy business owners like myself, taking the time and effort to achieve an MBA qualification will bring you a new skill set and mindset. Because Kaplan offers a manageable timetable for the programme, it is not difficult, speaking as a married man with three kids, similar to many peers in my class.
