Experience


 

David Waldron

After almost a decade working at one of Australia’s big banks, moving through different roles and departments, David Waldron recognised he needed a broader skillset.

Now he’s studying his Part-time MBA at Melbourne Business School.

“One of the reasons I wanted to study my MBA at Melbourne Business School was to round out my skillset,” David said.

Rounding out his skillset meant diversifying into different areas including accounting, marketing and human resources after a building up his technical abilities after studying mathematics, statistics and engineering at University of Melbourne and later entering into ANZ’s graduate program in 2007.
