Originally from Nairobi, Kenya, 22-year-old Andrew Kinyua says it was his first job as an assistant at a consultancy firm that cemented his passion for a career in commerce.
“I just love business,” he says. “I love the cunning and strategy involved in operating in the market, and the driven mindset that is needed to operate in the business world.”
It was the international reputation of the commerce degree at Flinders University that saw him make the move to Australia to study a Bachelor of Commerce at Flinders University.
Flinders University’s business, commerce and management degrees offer mentoring and specialised tutor programs to help develop work-ready skills across a range of professional, business related fields.
Students will have the opportunity to build networks with industry placements and projects, and experience cutting-edge innovation and enterprise topics powered by the New Venture Institute and the prestigious US Fox School of Business.
Practical instruction in key business functions including accounting and marketing principals, financial management, entrepreneurship & small business will help students like Andrew achieve their goals.
“One day I’d love to run a business of my own, and my degree at Flinders will give me the skills I need to be adept and succeed in the world of trade and commerce.”
