I engineered my MBA with a strategic path. I did some international business, strategic foresight, innovation and consulting units as electives. It gave me the ability to think laterally, to look at a situation and develop my own analytical models, and to use strategic frameworks to communicate a solution to the problem. I wouldn't have been able to work in my current job without my Swinburne MBA.
