What our graduates have to say

“I studied a Bachelor of Business (majoring in Marketing) at Western Sydney University, and in my spare time, I love to play basketball.

I may be a Business Grad, but I also love to cook!

I wanted to work for a company that was invested in my development and where I could grow professionally. Given my interests in a variety of different areas, it was important to find somewhere where I could explore and expand on my interests and skills; Westpac Group was the natural choice for me.

Through my marketing degree, I developed a keen interest in the role and importance of the customer experience in business. I applied to the Business graduate program because I was drawn to the significant role that the bank played in the lives of so many Australian businesses. In this division, we can positively impact the experiences of customers, and this is the main reason why I chose to join this program”.
