Master of Business Administration (Human Resources)

I have certainly enjoyed my time studying at Federation University Australia. The university is known for its five-star teaching quality and the lecturers really allowed me to achieve the level of success that I wanted. They were all very kind and supportive, very generous with their time and they all have excellent teaching skills. The class sizes and study environment at Mt Helen are excellent. I cannot imagine how I would have coped with my study at a large university, where there is not as much community around the university campus. I was able to secure a job in Ballarat straight after graduating, because of the reputation of Federation University Australia. I have also decided to stay in Australia to complete my Master of Business Administration (Human Resources) with Federation University Australia. If you want a university with outstanding teaching and a fun, inclusive social environment then you must consider Federation University Australia.
