UQ Bachelor of Commerce graduate Ms Cheng Lei who was awarded the prestigious Australia China Alumni Award (ACAA) for her wide-ranging achievements in ICT and New Media in 2014, comments:

“My commerce degree at UQ was an excellent all-round basis for my career – which has evolved from analysing efficiencies of chocolate making, to ensuring strict controls in petroleum exploration, to reviewing the failure of a Sino-Australian joint venture, to reporting on business stories to a global audience.”
