"For anyone considering studying at CSU, I would say don't think, just do. You won't regret the opportunity! Regional universities like CSU have a flavour that you don't get in capital cities. The lecturers are relaxed, as is the environment. The course quality is second to none and the wide open spaces and mixed culture of students really sets CSU apart.
"Fitting study into my life was difficult as I was required to travel interstate on a regular basis in my role as an executive with one of the big four banks, but the flexibility of the course and the fact that the course content was available online was a great option. No matter where I was I could meet all of my study requirements.
"I would describe CSU as the market leader when it comes to distance education. The MBA provides practical business training and is competitive in relation to cost, flexibility and content. The MBA has given me a practical level of knowledge and the confidence to think outside of the square and apply what I have learned to real-life situations. Six months after completing the course I gained a promotion, which I attribute to the greater level of understanding and insight I received during the course.
"Attending residential schools in locations such as Sydney CBD, Bathurst and Wagga Wagga campuses provided me with the opportunity to meet other students and staff as well as utilise the facilities that CSU had to offer.
"My most memorable moment at CSU was being admitted to the Golden Key International Honours Society, CSU Chapter - something I won't forget."
