What our students say

“As a postgraduate student who has studied at other universities – both here in Australia and overseas – I am particularly enjoying Bond’s small classes, engaging lecturers and assignments that offer practicality within the industry. The proportion of international students in my degree who are career-oriented like myself, not only offers a diverse range of opinions and a global perspective, but also the opportunity to start building a network of international contacts. Bond also helped me arrange an internship as a Financial Analyst at a fund manager with some $5 billion in funds under management. I have weekly contact with asset management firms from around the world and feel privileged to be at the table, contributing to these meetings”.
