“If you are looking for an MBA which means more than a pay rise - a chance to make a difference in the world, then come to Murdoch”.
Kath Sugars – MBA

"I chose Murdoch based on recommendations by fellow students at my home university. They told me about high quality facilities, motivated and supportive unit coordinators and staff as well as Australia´s west coast being one of the most beautiful spots in the world. All these aspects created a lifetime experience and convinced me to come here”
