The move to Flinders was a “chalk and cheese” experience for Lucas. “I wanted to be a doctor as a kid, but realised early in my undergrad that this was not the career for me. I finally woke up to myself... I loved economics, behavioural finance and global markets, which is what led me to Flinders to do my MBA. The rest is history.”
Lucas says that another key benefit of choosing Flinders University for his MBA was that he found the right teachers to help him learn. He says he just “clicked” with them and found that the way they presented information was “second to none”.
It’s true that the Flinders MBA program is run by exceptional teachers. Each is an expert in their profession and well-connected to members of their industry. Flinders University partners with over 350 organisations to provide practice-based experiences on top of teaching. It’s determined to give students a hands-on experience and valuable contacts before they graduate.
But, no matter how great the lecturers are, Lucas points out that you’ll still need to put the work in if you want to see results. “It’s a very intimate learning experience... And if you hadn’t done the required reading, you were soon found out!”
A Flinders University MBA is, perhaps, one of the most flexible courses of its kind, suitable to any working style or commitment. That’s because students can complete their course online. If you’re based in or around Adelaide, you will have classes in the city. Lucas found that face to face classes were the way to go for him, highlighting the immediacy in contact and opportunity to “pick the teachers’ brains” whenever he needed advice.
No matter how you choose to study your MBA, you can be confident that you’ll leave Flinders University a sought-after, multiskilled, career-ready graduate. In fact, The Good Universities Guide 2021 has stated that Flinders University is number one in Australia for overall experience in business and management.
“If you had told my 16 year old self I would be working in global and domestic markets with economics and media components, I wouldn’t believe I was talking to my older self,” said Lucas.
