What our students say

The programme was very practical with a focus on transferable skills and employability throughout. We completed real-life case studies and assignments which aided our understanding of various concepts. The classes were really interactive with breakout rooms and discussions to allow students interact. The level of staff support was incredible, they made it clear that they were here to help us and made additional supports such as free online counselling and mental health webinars available.

Erica Masterson
BA (Hons) in Business

The degree helped me transition my career from a self-employed personal trainer to a career in logistics. It gave me the skills needed to deal with decision-making, time-management and working in a fast-paced environment. The staff at Griffith were so supportive through the pandemic and maintained great communication with students. As I was working full-time, the ability to watch lectures from home really helped me balance work and study.
