Kirsten Simpson

One of the first Master of Environment graduates, Kirsten is now Corporate Responsibility Manager at Vic Super. Her team comprises many OEP graduates, too!

“I graduated from the Masters of Environment a decade ago now, having been in one of the first rounds of students to complete the program. What I learnt in the Masters gave me a good grounding and understanding of how everything is connected.

The world really is a very complex place. Most University degrees allow you to develop a set of specialised skills in a particular profession. The Masters of Environment at Melbourne University is different. It allows you to take a step back so that you can take a look at the big picture.

Having these skills has helped me to get to where I am in my career today. It’s also something that I look for when I hire people to work in my team. In fact, I have hired many Melbourne University Masters of Environment graduates over the past decade, including in my team at VicSuper today."
