Why Master of Commerce at unsw?
I choose Master of Commerce at The University of New South Wales (UNSW) because it offers a tailored need program for one's career advancement by providing a lot of elective courses since the first semester and ends it with capstone courses that can tie up all the previous learnings into concrete actions. However, what sets UNSW Master of Commerce apart from other programs, is the wide and unique spectrums of 18 specializations that aren't commonly offered in other places including for which students need to elect 2 studies from the options. This unique program include purpose led study of Innovation & Entrepreneurship and tech study of Enterprise System & Business Design, both intersect perfectly with my lifelong dream to promote more of Indonesian local brand by creating a business aggregator for Small Scale Industries (SSI).
Years of working as a brand manager, I've always treated myself as a business owner to actively seeking ways to grow the business. Something I desire to continue doing but on a bigger scale by developing emerging SSI that can directly contribute to Indonesia's economy. However, despite constituting 98% of Indonesian business units only a few micro and small enterprises able to scale up their size due to insufficient understanding towards market access, funding, and including fears towards taxation, which consequently lead to short-term business model. My ambition is to replicate more of Kecap Bango & Indomie's success stories, one of the most sought after local brands that were once MSME's home industry products.
As an alternative, I also choose Master of Enterprise at Melbourne University which offer a similar syllabus with UNSW Master of Commerce Innovation & Entrepreneurship study specialization.
