What do our students say?

Alexandra Jarossay "The practical experiences and lecturers were the best things about the Master of Business. The program content strikes a good balance between key business theories and real-world business practice. Most of my assignments involved developing business plans, marketing and commercialisation strategies for non-profit organisations, startups and even our own ventures."
