Daniel Dempsey
BA (Hons) in Business Studies

My time studying business in Griffith College has been one of the best experiences in my life. It has opened up a whole new world for me, academically, socially and personally. Griffith made me see that I could succeed in my academic endeavours with their excellent facilities and staff. I enjoyed my journey so much with my higher business Diploma last year that I decided to come back and pursue my degree for the next three years and I’m enjoying every minute of it!
