*2011 ranking by Shanghai Jiao Tong University

Business acumen is a critical competency that I need to be successful in my role as Senior Compensation and Benefits Manager at Honeywell. JCU’s Graduate Certificate of Business Administration program is delivered by highly professional lecturers who were able to enrich the programme by sharing their own experiences in business. This combined with the knowledge and the experience that my fellow students brought to the ‘table’ provided me with a holistic, motivating and fun learning environment in which I could only excel. - Susan Lock
