George Padwick, MBA (UWA)
Production Integration - BHP Billiton, Canada

I was nervous when I left my job in Ontario to pursue the MBA at UWA and a career in resources.

Fortunately, the BHP Billiton Scholarship was a blessing that opened so many doors and has helped make my plan a success.

I chose UWA for a couple of reasons. First and foremost, it has a world-class reputation and it’s located in the heart of the action of the resources and mining world. The lecturers were terrific and I learned so much.

Now, I'll be part of the Operational Readiness team for a new potash mine that BHP Billiton is building in Saskatchewan, Canada. It’s a great opportunity for me and will take full advantage of my background in engineering, my experience in operations management, as well as utilise my MBA. I couldn't have asked for any more!
