Some more messages from our global alumni on how their ANU degree prepared them for their careers:

“ANU had a profound effect on my professional career. The University taught me the field of economics, which has been enormously instrumental in my career. After graduating, I have enjoyed giving back by giving lectures at CBE."

Alastair J.M. Walton is the Consul-General of Australia to New York

  

“With all the flexibilities ANU has given me, I have learnt the importance of making decisions with long-term goals in mind. This is particularly critical for me, as change is the only constant in the competitive market of e-commerce."

Huiqi Low, strategy associate in Lazada (Alibaba Group)

““Even in the late 1970s, when I was studying at ANU, it was still a very international university with many students from overseas. My experience at ANU really expanded my horizon and opened my eyes to the world. In fact, ANU had sparked my interest in an international career."

Rod Jackson, Chief Financial Officer, Westpac International

“Being an ANU student helped me gain a lot of confidence and skills to deal with different situations in the workplace. This was important for me because as the only senior woman executive I was often quite isolated at work. When you’re in class at university, you are surrounded by great sounding boards."

Kim Sinclair, CEO of SEARMS Aboriginal Corporation

“I will always be grateful to ANU for offering me the ANU International Undergraduate Scholarship, which was a full scholarship. Growing up in a middle-class Chinese family, I never imagined I’d be studying at a world-class university such as ANU. The support ANU provided was the foundation that enabled me to focus on my studies, build my company, and achieve my dreams."

Fangzhou Jiang, Co-founder and Chief Business Development Officer, Crimson Education
