Hear from our Bondies

  • Master of Arts (Coursework)

    "I completed a Master of Arts, majoring in Corporate Communication and Public Relations. I decided to study at Bond, due to the ability to fast track my degrees and the small size of the university. I also loved the tight knit community! Bond allowed me to connect with other previous students from around the world who also run their own business. The network that Bond has established helped me greatly. I now work as the Director of How to Social Australia. I would certainly recommend this degree to anyone and I do on a regular basis."
