Meet our successful Accounting alumni

A group of our accounting alumni recently returned to our Hawthorn campus to share the stories of their successful careers after graduating from Swinburne.

  • "I have found my degree in accounting and marketing to be an asset in running my business, Curtis Collection by Victoria. Marketing gives me a creative discipline and Accounting allows me to take the emotion out of decisions based on the business's financials. Swinburne prepared me in the best possible way, for running my own business."
