“I studied at Bond for one year doing my Master of Business focusing on strategic management and organisational behaviour. Everything at Bond was beautiful. What I loved most was the quality of teaching and small student classes which ensures you get to know everyone and build your network. This is something you simply cannot find at other universities”.
