Charting a global course: Puthisak’s MBA and future in International Business.

“I would recommend studying at Flinders for its high-quality education and supportive staff—there is always someone who is ready to help.”

Embarking on a journey towards an MBA can be both exciting and challenging, especially for an international student like Puthisak.

Hailing from Cambodia, he chose Flinders University for its exceptional education quality and supportive staff who are always ready to assist.

Puthisak’s pathway to his dream degree began with the Flinders University Academy Pre Masters Business Program, a 7-week intensive designed to equip students with essential skills in key business subjects.

This program fast-tracked Puthisak’s progression into the Master of Business Administration (International Business) by enhancing his academic skills and confidence.

Reflecting on his experience, he acknowledges the significant role the Academy played in his academic journey.

“The program was incredibly beneficial. It prepared me well for my MBA, particularly with skills like referencing and handling challenging assignments,” he says.

Motivated by his prior work experience at an international accounting firm in Cambodia, Puthisak was inspired to delve deeper into global business operations.

“My ambition is to pursue a career as a business analyst at a global firm – a goal that I believe Flinders will help me achieve.”
