Chloe Rozario, a student of the course and a current public servant, shares her perspective. “I chose [this course] because I’ve always been interested in marketing, advertising, and particularly the creative side of that industry. Being a Monash alum, I remembered how much I enjoyed my time back then, so it was an obvious choice for me when deciding where I wanted to do my Masters.”

The benefits of online study

Choosing an online mode of study brings its unique set of advantages. Flexibility and the ability to balance study with other facets of life stand out as a top draw. Chloe resonates with this, in particular: “I have a time-consuming full-time job, so I’ve loved being able to study at a time that suits me best — whether that’s after work, during my lunch break, or on weekends”. 

Fellow student of the Master of Business Management, Lachlan Mollica, agrees. “Studying online allows me to work full time and supports my current lifestyle. By studying online, I am able to study during times that suit my work life, block out my week with an effective study timetable and maintain healthy study-related stress levels. By having this balance I can achieve study, work, and life goals.”

But flexibility isn’t the only upside of online study. Our phenomenal Online Learning Advisors (OLAs) play a pivotal role in enhancing the online learning experience. “My OLAs have been amazing; they’re all so approachable and helpful,” says Chloe.

“The course structure is incredibly flexible, allowing me to prioritise learning at times that suit me. The learning content is suitably challenging and is industry-specific. The support and relationships developed with the OLAs is second to none,” says Lachlan.
