Student profile

Student profile – Matt Delmenico

Choosing to study an MBA at UWA pushed me out of my comfort zone, giving me a real personal challenge and offering a different perspective. The MBA provided countless networking and career development opportunities. It also encouraged strategic thinking and ‘bigger picture’ understanding, gave me an opportunity to deepen my technical expertise and analytical ability, and improved my communication skills.

It never stopped with the lectures – there was always something exciting on, whether it be Case Club, Panorama Seminars, GMA Twilight Networking events, or student boardroom lunches. The chance to learn from other students from a broad range of sectors (for example, Oil & Gas, Pharmaceutical, Healthcare, Government, IT) as well as the opportunity to study abroad (Operations Management in Germany and International Marketing in the USA) and attend lectures at UCLA and Columbia simply enriched the overall experience.  

The MBA was a real investment in my future and will set up me up for future General Manager roles.
