Kaplan Business School

Australia
Overview

Overview

Kaplan Business School, based in Australia, offers a range of undergraduate and postgraduate programs in a variety of subjects. Students can pursue courses in management, marketing, finance, analytics, business, tourism, digital management, entrepreneurship, project management, leadership and health services. KBS is based in five cities across Australia, namely Adelaide, Perth, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane. Each campus location provides students with an ideal educational and social environment.

Academic internships are central to the educational model at KBS. Using industry networks, KBS places students in one of a number of organisations as part of their course, giving them the chance to experience working business environments before they even finish studying. This is a substantial competitive edge when it comes to graduate outcomes, with one in three students who took part in an academic internship between March 2018 and March 2020 offered ongoing employment.

Students are ideally located in central city locations on KBS campuses. This gives them the benefit of both a bustling city environment and a close-knit student community. Students have access to modem and industry-leading facilities including libraries, accommodation, computer labs and cafes. They are also well supported by a range of student services that enhance the student experience at KBS.

Students can access services such as academic support, careers advice, counselling, and personal support. There is also an orientation programme that helps international students settle into life on campus and in Australia.
