Ms Melissa Ware
Bachelor of Management
Employed: The Races Editor and South Australian Breeders’ and Owners’ Incentive Scheme (SABOIS)
Coordinator, Thoroughbred Racing South Australia
Melissa Ware’s love of horses and an interest in marketing led to her decision to undertake a Bachelor of Management at Deakin. Now she has landed her dream job. ‘Without my degree I wouldn’t have the job I have today,’ she says. ‘I am delighted to have got it straight out of uni.’
Melissa is a horse racing judge, edits a racing magazine, and helps administer a breeding incentive scheme – all part of her multi-faceted role with Thoroughbred Racing South Australia. ‘I have always loved horses and the opportunity to work professionally in the racing industry was something I could never knock back,’ she says.
Growing up in Warrnambool with horses as her first love, all Melissa wanted to do was work with them. Her success in business and commerce subjects in Year 12, combined with her interest in marketing, attracted Melissa to Deakin’s Management degree.
Melissa thoroughly enjoyed the content of her studies and found Deakin staff extremely helpful and supportive. ‘It couldn’t have been any better and the lecturers were great,’ she says.
