Why hello there.
My name is Darragh Murray, a business analytics and data guy who works in the field of international education in Australia. Thanks for stopping by my corner of the web.
On this site you’ll find a record of my writing on a number of topics related to my profession and many hobbies. In particular I like to concentrate on:
- Business analytics and intelligence and how it interacts with the field of international education.
- Issues in international politics and economics that overlap with international education.
Before working in international education, I worked in commercial dispute resolution, housing, government. I also occasionally dabble in freelance writing – particularly the music variety. I also had a two year stint as a volunteer radio producer for my local community radio station. You can tell I like to keep myself busy!
This site is also the defacto home of the UN Internship F.A.Q. I interned at the United Nations in 2010 and I authored the F.A.Q as a guide to help prospective interns of what they might expect working at United Nations headquarters in New York. It’s slightly out of date but I’ve left it here for posterities sake.
I have formal tertiary qualifications in information systems, international relations, history and business analytics. I currently work for a large higher education institution based in Brisbane, Australia.
Feel free to get in contact if you have any queries related to my professional work or just feel like saying g’day.
