DIPLOMA OF BUSINESS
BACHELOR OF BUSINESS

"At home, I was taught to memorise facts without applying it to real life. The learning environment at Monash College is very different! We were provided with learning support and guidance outside of class time, which helped me adjust to the different teaching style. It also helped me learn about Australian learning styles, specific to Monash University."

DIPLOMA OF BUSINESS

"To explain marketing concepts, we use real-life examples of products and brands, such as Coca-Cola, Honda and Apple. Teachers bring sample products to class, and use the Internet and videos to show you how marketing is used in practice. With this approach, you can understand how the theory works in the market. It helps you learn as you can relate to your own shopping and buying decisions."
