Pathways in Business – KPMG Barangaroo

12 Mar 2024
Student

On Thursday, 7 March, MCC’s Year 12 Business Services class visited international firm KPMG’s offices in Barangaroo, Sydney, to see a real-world practical application of several HSC units they are studying this year. This amazing opportunity was organised via CSBB Pathways and Partnerships.

Students were taken on an office tour of the International Building and learnt about some sustainable practices the building employs, such as an underground maggot farm to reduce food waste and the use of water from Sydney Harbour to run the air conditioning in the building. We learnt about the organisational structure of KPMG and how their Wellbeing and Inclusion policies and procedures assist their diverse workforce to have the opportunity to succeed.

We were lucky enough to attend an International Women’s Day event, where the students were exposed to an international panel of women leaders, including Michelle Bullock, the Governor of the Reserve Bank of Australia.

This excursion gave Year 12 students a practical application of the theoretical content learnt in classes, and they can use this experience as a case study in their upcoming Business Services Trial and HSC examinations.
