When I started I had no idea what to expect. I love meeting new people and making social connections and the MBA was really good for that. In those two years I had a big life transition and I’ve made some great friends. In the MBA there are fewer Australian students than there are international students, so I’ve met some awesome people from very different backgrounds.
