(Student Profile)

Caroline Madueno

With a concern for the political, economic, cultural and social challenges faced by countries, and a passion for human rights and helping others, Caroline chose to study the Master of International Trade and Commerce Law*. She found the course particularly useful because her work requires an understanding of legal processes and issues.

“Macquarie gave me excellent knowledge of international trade and commerce law, international criminal law, and humanitarian and human rights law. I was able to develop the ability to make legal judgments which I constantly apply in my current role. You learn to analyse issues, draw your own conclusions and be able to strongly defend them. I also learnt to be analytical, be an effective communicator, pay attention to detail and to have sound judgment – all crucial skills in my field of work.”

Caroline feels its Macquarie’s ‘global mindset’ that really sets it apart from other universities. “Macquarie’s global vision is reflected in the programs and activities available to students. I really enjoyed the Global Leadership Program (GLP) – you learn aspects and insights that you don’t see in your regular coursework.”

Caroline currently works for Action on Armed Violence (AOAV) in the UK as a Programme Officer for Africa, Middle East and Latin America.

*Caroline studied the Master of International Trade and Commerce Law as a double degree with the Master of International Relations, rather than as a single degree.
