Student and alumni profiles

Ms Elizabeth Hemsley

Course of study:
Bachelor of Accounting Bachelor of Finance

I finished my course at La Trobe with a well-rounded education and a readiness for future career success. I recently graduated from La Trobe with a double degree in Accounting and Finance.

I decided to study both accounting and finance to broaden the range of career options. My course consisted of a number of foundation subjects, several electives for specialisation.

I had the opportunity to complete an accounting work placement. I was able to find work as an assistant accountant in the city. The experience was a great opportunity to put what I learnt into practice and set me up for further success in career outcomes, including my current role as a full time data analyst.

My favourite part of my degree at La Trobe was the networks I made with students and lecturers. I created many friendships with other students that and all my lecturers had relevant work experience in their specialised areas and provided us with invaluable networking opportunities.

Within one month of completing my degree, I was able to secure a job relevant to my future career aspirations. I hope to further pursue my passion for Finance, and begin a career as an investment analyst. I believe my studies at La Trobe and my current employment have both set me up to achieve my goals.
