Study at VU

Playing the numbers game

Oladokun Omibiyi completed a Bachelor of Business (Accounting).

Workplace learning: Gaming department, Crown Melbourne.

"After I completed my Advanced Diploma of Financial Services at another institute, I decided to continue my studies at Victoria University. The Bachelor of Business (Accounting) is a well designed and structured degree, and I was really interested in VU's Work Integrated Learning program.

I completed my work placement as a finance administrator for the Gaming Machines department at Crown Melbourne, where I worked on the gaming machines in particular.

I learned about administrating business applications, forecasting, budgeting and customer service.

My responsibilities included carrying out the daily reconciliation of all gaming machine accounts, regular financial reporting, handling the daily transactions and updating the general ledger.

The practical experience was just what I needed to apply what I learned in class to real-life situations.

I would definitely recommend VU to anyone interested in a unique study experience, with strong support from both peers and the lecturers."
