Lyndal Bick is a high achiever. With years of experience in logistics, liaison and operations – both in Australia and internationally – she’s now ready to explore new career options.
Currently halfway through her MBA, Lyndal is expanding her knowledge across a range of areas.
“So far, I’ve really learnt a lot of useful practical knowledge such as in accounting, finance and economics. We’ve also been exposed to some great industry leaders who have given us their time and shared some of their experience with us through breakfasts, lectures and other networking events,” Lyndal said.
“I’ve been loving learning and look forward to taking in what the remainder of the year has to offer both academically and experientially, especially with the International Study Tour to Silicon Valley and Stanford University in the USA.
