Monash provided me with a solid foundation on which I can build on in the workplace as a budding researcher . The emphasis on critical thinking instilled within me the practice of being mindful and critical of information and ideas that come my way , and the drive to search for information that is logical and evidence-based . This has been immensely valuable to me as a market researcher .”
