Very flexible and manageable course load. However, teaching quality not always perfect

My advice to future students is: Plan out your degree ahead of time and travel!!

I would say it is beneficial if you are looking to get into the media industry whether it be in marketing/pr or the more digital side like radio.

It was a great overview of what it is like to work in the media industry but definitely doesn't get down into the nitty gritty of what its really like working in media and the kinds of skills you need to complete day to day tasks.

The only way you would get that experience is through an internship on top of this degree.

I was doing Bachelor of Commerce (Dean's scholar) with major in Supply Chain and Logistics management at UOW during 2015-2017.

This course is quite new with fewer students than other major such as Finance or Accounting, Management. The content is good with lots of theories that gave me a broad view about supply chain industry. I found the content in 1 subject repeated a few times in the other subjects, which is good since you can review it and relate the information to do your assignments better.

However, I find there are too many theories, some quite old and not applicable to current workplace should be reduced. It calls Supply chain and logistics but the Logistics aspects were rarely touched. The most basic knowledge in Logistics is Incoterms which was not mentioned during the course. It should be called Supply Chain only.

In the third year, there is a subject called Strategic Management - Code: MGNT314. This is my most favourite subject but also challenging. It is the most practical and worthwhile during the course. You will find yourself reading case study from the global companies owning the best supply chains, gathering their data and attempted to analyse their practice and also giving advice for better performance.

I was on the Dean's list so I got support financially from the university which I think enough for me to buy new textbooks and printing. However, the academic support is not that helpful when I sought advice for my next plan in career.

Overall, I liked the environment where I had the chance to communicate with lots of local students and uni staff. The library now opens 24/7 which is absolutely amazing.
