Topics include effective exam techniques, management strategies for domestic and local business, financial planning and examining case studies.
“These Study Days events are a great opportunity for the students to get prepared for the HSC, said Nadia Verrucci, Sub Dean for the Faculty of Commerce. “We have well-versed professionals ready to share their knowledge with the students to give them an extra advantage and insight into economics and business matters.”
“We are really looking forward to the events,” said Nadia. “We meet so many enthusiastic young people and their committed teachers. The Study Days allows the students to focus their attention on how best to study for their HSC as well as providing very useful information on improving exam results.”
