Lucy Coote shares her experience of the Burgmann Alumni & Friends Mentoring (BAM) Program

I’m in my third year of a Business Administration degree at ANU, majoring in Management and minoring in International Business. I’m a very organised person and have always been interested in the administration side of business. This degree was ideal, as it allowed me to complete courses that would form part of a Commerce degree whilst also specialising with a greater administration and management focus.
