Diploma Of Commerce Testimonials

“Studying at Kaplan Business School was not your typical university experience. The intimate learning environment meant I could easily ask questions of the tutor during lectures and tutorials, which helped me gain greater knowledge and insight into subject content. Any help I needed outside of classes was readily provided by staff, who were committed to making my learning experience as relevant as possible to best meet my goals.” John Forster, Melbourne Campus “After completing year 12, I didn’t feel ready to leap straight into university. Kaplan Business School’s intimate learning environment has really helped me to find my feet. The easy access to lecturers has been invaluable – if you’ve got a question, it’s easy to get in touch with them, and they always have time for me. I’ve found that one-on-one attention with lecturers has been priceless and helped me to better understand the course content.” Zhwan Said, Sydney Campus “I enjoy being a Kaplan Business School student because of the high quality courses.

I can take the concepts that are being taught to me in class and apply them to real-life situations.” Jenny Huynh, Melbourne Campus “Compared to universities, the Master of Professional Accounting is good value for money. It is well-renowned and reputable and recognised by CPA Australia and the Institute of Chartered Accountants in Australia, which helps if you’d like to pursue these qualifications down the line. All the staff are really helpful and compassionate too.” Hui Hui Goh, Melbourne Campus

“One of the best things about studying at Kaplan Business School is that the assessment items are structured so that you can build a portfolio of practical work you have completed. This gives you something to show potential employers. The course also provides a chance for work experience and to work on projects.

Some lecturers continue to act as my mentors, helping me along the path to achieve my personal career goals.” Reiko Hagihara, Sydney Campus “I chose to study at Kaplan Business School (KBS) because of its reputation, being a subsidiary of the Washington Post Company. The fact that Kaplan is one of the world’s largest providers of accountancy and business training also aligned with my career goal. The interest that the lecturers take in my work makes me feel they are there not only to teach, but to ensure I perform well — they are ready to walk that extra mile with every student. I would definitely recommend KBS to others because this is where, I believe, global education is provided at a personal level.” Chitiz Khawas, Adelaide Campus “For me, studying at Kaplan Business School has been an experience of a lifetime.
