“I chose to study Commerce because of the flexible nature of the course and the broad range of opportunities offered. The Quinn school has incredible facilities which accommodate interesting teamwork, such as their collaboration room. Most of the friends I have made were through the stimulating teamwork offered. The one thing that I really enjoy about Commerce is how we learn and analyse real world business problems. The on-going support that Quinn offers ensures that you never feel helpless. I strongly believe that the course is tailored to help students achieve their goals and is well suited towards their ambitions.”
