Daryn Grantham completed a Bachelor of Business and Bachelor of Information Technology at USQ which established strong foundations for a successful career. He named many advantages of studying at USQ including shorter commute times, cheaper rent and lifestyle, small community of learners and personalised lecture interactions. In fact, it was the lecturer interaction that later led Daryn to returning to USQ as a Business Analyst.
After graduation, Daryn applied for a graduate position at Suncorp and from 1000 people who applied, he was one of two people who attained the job. This led to a range of positions at Suncorp working in infrastructure, architecture, mainframes and pure business analysis.
At the start of 2012, Daryn was ready for a change. He emailed a lecturer who taught him at USQ and asked if there were any jobs available that he may be able to do. After a few enquiries, the perfect job was found for this inquisitive, worldly business analyst. He was hired as the lead analyst on one of the Universities largest projects, the online payment gateway. While working at USQ, Daryn is also finishing off his MBA at UQ part-time.
