Maria is a Lecturer in the Victoria University Business School. She has been involved in education for over 20 years. This experience has included delivering learning in the corporate sector and post-compulsory education. Her skills include curriculum development for industry and the Higher Education sector and policy development in the area of Articulation.

The involvement of industry allows students to demonstrate the application of generic skills such as critical thinking, problem-solving and teamwork to workplace mentors.
