Bronwyn Hilmer

An interest in how the theoretical side of the job measured up against the practical side prompted business intelligence analyst Bronwyn Hilmer to do a Master of Information Systems at Griffith University. Bronwyn completed her postgraduate studies over two years while also working at Griffith's Nathan campus in the Office of Planning and Financial Services. 'The flexibility of the program was fantastic and I was able to network regularly with lecturers,' she said. 'My studies reinforced the work I was doing, and provided me with a solid base to develop a deeper knowledge of my profession and its impact in the greater business intelligence environment.'
