Student Testimonial

 

 

CHEUNG Chi Wa Matthew

Bachelor of Business

 

“The Bachelor of Business degree from the University of Wollongong is truly an excellent program that combines academic quality and practicality.

 

While studying for the UOW Bachelor degree, I was able to acquire not only the quantitative skills required in business, but the comprehensive knowledge of business management. These are covered by subjects such as statistical analysis, international marketing, and strategic management. The contents of these subjects are almost universally applicable to all types of industries and the business sector.

 

Armed with a UOW degree, I was able to capture job offers from Hutchison Telecommunication Ltd and PricewaterhouseCoopers.”
