                                              The Master of Professional Accounting/Master of Business Administration from James Cook
                                              University has given me the foundation needed to be a qualified Accountant and a way to
                                              accomplish my dreams.
                                              At JCU Brisbane, there are a number of different learning and research techniques to help
                                              students broaden their way of thinking and familiarise themselves with the real world, which
                                              include presentations, boot-camps, case studies, online discussions and the internship program.
                                              During my studies I was exposed to not only expert technical knowledge of accounting
                                              concepts, but also a highly stimulating learning environment. I have been able to polish up
                                              on my skills such as active communication, working in a team environment and under highly
                                              stressed conditions, as well as personal attributes like punctuality and leadership qualities.
                                              Thanks to my degree and the help of Joblinx, I am now employed full time as a Company
                                              Accountant with an Australian organisation.
