On top of the HR knowledge I apply in my current job, I am also passionate about International Business. Therefore, I chose to study a Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Management with International Business (Top-up) Degree programme with Royal Holloway, University of London as it offered an opportunity for me to expand my knowledge about different business management practices in various countries and widen my career path by not limiting myself to a single specialisation. Also, Royal Holloway, University of London is highly regarded for its Business and Management faculty. 

I feel that the Royal Holloway, University of London and Kaplan lecturers who taught us are meticulous and patient. They always provide their full support to us and will spend time after class to explain to us and answer our queries until we understand concepts. They also use real-life examples and share their experiences with us, allowing us to better understand specific modules or topics and how to apply them in our work. 

Time management and self-discipline are important lessons I’ve learned studying this programme part-time, resulting in me being able to perform my job more effectively and efficiently within a tight timeline. Upon completing this programme, I found a new job as an HR Executive.

Murdoch University’s Double Master’s Degree offering was too good to miss. With the same duration in a typical single Master’s programme, I could achieve two such Masters Degrees and proficiency in two domains.

The dual programme is meaningful to current working professionals, as gone are the days when one could be content with strong knowledge in one domain. Now, a Double Masters will give us the needed advantage.

The school offers flexible study options and personalised courses, which are important to me as a working adult with commitments. Having the luxury to personalise the courses lets me manage my time better. For instance, knowing I would be working on a data-related project later in the year, I enrolled in a data course beforehand to prepare myself.

Even with virtual learning (due to the pandemic), there is no compromise on the quality of teaching. The lecturers have a vast knowledge of the subjects and the ability to impart relevant academic and personal experience to students. The programme also encourages class engagement.

One of the most invaluable takeaways from this programme is getting to learn from fellow classmates. You will not find a better place to network and learn from others than in the MBA-MIT programme, as the programme is taken by working professionals, many of whom have years of experience.

My dual Masters programme aside, I had previously graduated with a Degree in Digital Business from University College Dublin, another partner University at Kaplan, which enabled me to progress in my professional career.

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

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.
