The University of Sydney MBA is distinctive because we focus on learning by doing. We create experiences for students where they can learn what to do with the knowledge that they have. The biggest thing I want
people to get from today is that they are the architect of their lives, of their future, they can choose to apply themselves and be fabulous at the things that they want to be. Today’s Masterclass exceeded my expectations. Sometimes you go to university lectures and they’re quite dry, but I found
today incredibly interactive. It’s made me really
inspired to want to be part of the Sydney University MBA. All the instructors in the program embrace the notion of experiential learning, what matters is can you get your initiatives through the organisation and that’s what we really work on at Sydney. For anybody thinking of doing this my answer would be definitely do it. If I can learn this much in four hours it makes me think how much I can actually learn when I do the entire program. The media training this morning was great it really opened my eyes to the refinements I can make to the way I communicate with all types of people. To be taught in a very structured way from very experienced journalist himself was just invaluable. At about , I don’t know, 11 o’clock yesterday, Jo looked at me and Chris and said “Wow, what are we gonna do?” The five of you are so good any of you could easily walk away with that scholarship. So the winner of the scholarship is Peter Giurissevich. I feel ecstatic if I’m honest it’s a great privilege and honour to get the award. I think that the MBA will only add to my skill set to become a leader. I think the process showed
me not only the quality of the faculty but also the calibre of people who interested in the program and in the University of Sydney. You’ll learn some stuff along
the way, you’ll meet some really great people, and I think you will be genuinely invigorated by the Masterclass and some of the stuff you learn that you’ll want to study and want to complete the Sydney University MBA, so there should be no hesitation about applying and going for it.
