What our students say

Sam Trethewey

Executive MBA Graduate, Agriculture

"[Bond's EMBA] enables me to have much higher conversations in the industry…and start seeing where we can make change, and how we can influence and think outside the square…The guys that went to uni and expanded their mind and worked elsewhere… will always do well because they understand the market and they understand how business works.”

“The insight you get from a study tour is something you just can’t learn from reading a textbook or sitting in a classroom. The amount I learnt in one week in Silicon Valley was amazing and I’m still thinking about how I can apply the knowledge and information I gained.”
