Open Day was one of the busiest to date for La Trobe Business School

Earlier this month, La Trobe Business School opened its doors for the most successful open day to date. Through presentations and several activities, La Trobe Business School staff encouraged young and interested people to learn more about the perks of studying business, commerce, or management. Here’s three great things we took away from our Open Day presentations:

  1. We prepare you for the jobs of tomorrow, even the ones that don’t exist yet.

    Emma Sherry speaking about the LBS Business degrees

    Thanks to digital disruption, the future of work is changing. At Open Day, our Associate Professor Emma Sherry spoke to a full house about how our degrees will equip you with the skills and tools you need to adapt to new professional settings in a changing world. Through our placements and internships, we aim to put students in real organisations, meeting real people and gaining real experience. This gives students a practical and honest look into what it would be like working in their preferred field, and gives them the opportunity to build their own professional networks. For them, this often results in a job once they graduate.

  2. Prepare for working in a globalised business landscape

    Greg Jamieson speaking to students at Open Day

    Greg Jamieson, the Associate Head of La Trobe Business School, spoke about how graduates of tomorrow need to know how to navigate a more globalised landscape. We aim for our students to graduate with practical business skills, a global perspective and a detailed understanding of complex business environments and how they affect each other. Thanks to La Trobe Business School’s partnerships with prestigious universities in France, Vietnam or China, we can provide you with a learning experience that puts you right in the middle of the action, allowing you to hone your management and business skills. Our students complete an internship, practicum or travel tour, and learn through company visits and industry-led seminars. See how businesses operate all over the world, and learn from industry experts with years of experience.

  3. Be ready to work environments varying from multinational organisations to your local community


    Our Design Thinking Challenge Board was covered in ideas by the end of the day!

    Through our design thinking challenge on Open Day, we were able to show young people how a concept like innovation is multilayered and affects our lives in a range of different ways. Through a transdisciplinary degree like our Bachelor of Commerce, we teach you how to tackle multilayered problems in an appropriate way. Our degree brings together accounting, economics, finance, management and marketing students with students from arts, law, and a range of sciences, so you learn how to communicate and work effectively in multidisciplinary, multicultural teams and solve the type of complex social and commercial challenges faced by corporations and diverse communities.Our commerce students are encouraged to develop multidisciplinary skills through taking a double major or double degree. Throughout this degree, you learn how to create sustainable value in corporations and diverse communities. Through this, you also learn how to communicate your own value to future employers.
