  • Bond University’s Project Management program piqued my interest and with further research about the course I knew this was the place I wanted to spend two years of my life. Bond helped me gain real world work experience while studying which played an important factor in me learning about the work culture in Australia and adapting to the new environment. I would gladly recommend studying at Bond for its structured courses, supportive professors and the relaxed yet productive lifestyle.

  • "Nations around the world have experienced a global pandemic and are trying to rebuild their economies with extra government stimulus. This process, which is expected to take many years, creates a once-in-a-generation opportunity for talented project and program managers to help their societies by delivering innovative solutions. Pre-pandemic, project management jobs were abundant and well-paid. Post-pandemic, jobs are forecast to grow even more across all industry sectors and regions."
