Inside the Melbourne Microfinance Initiative

The University of Melbourne’s student clubs are one of the community’s most fundamental building blocks. They offer students a breadth of opportunities to add to their university experience, to make friends, develop skills, and begin building a professional network that will stay with them into their careers. The Melbourne Microfinance Initiative (MMI) offers its members a unique experience: the chance to have a real-world, social impact, both locally and internationally.

It’s not just about the numbers. For BCom Student Barry Zhang the narrative is just as important. His experience in the Management Consulting subject, working with HASSELL Architecture and Design firm gave him the chance to build a new narrative, and understand the full scope of management consulting.
