Meet one of our students
Bachelor of Business (Agribusiness) student Kaitlyn Wishart undertook a 12-week work placement with AgriNous, a Bendigo-based business that develops digital tools for the livestock industry.
I looked at the marketing side of the business, and was taught the customer service side of things. Everyone there is so passionate about what they do, they’re welcoming and they want to help you.
