Bronwyn is a Senior Geologist at Superior Gold Inc. and has had a diverse and successful career as a geologist over the past 20 years. She completed a Graduate Diploma with CQUniversity in 2016, before returning one year later to complete a Master of Business Administration (MBA). She completed her study whilst working 12+ hour days on a 9 days on, 5 days off roster.
In Bronwyn’s current role, she supervises two graduates. This involves training them as geologists, determining software requirements and securing approvals. Her responsibilities include the purchasing and receipting of goods and services, liaising with management on the logistics of the department and securing funding.
Before deciding to undertake study with CQUniversity, Bronwyn had been working as a geologist for about 15 years in Western Australia. She was made redundant during a large downturn in the industry, so was unable to find more work. It was then that she decided to do an MBA to gain a better understanding of business practices. Bronwyn feels her studies at CQUniversity have given her a greater understanding of how different parts of business run. i.e. what accountants, human resources personnel etc. have as a theoretical basis for decision making.
