Kaplan Business School

Australia
Overview

Overview

Kaplan Business School (KBS) is located in Australia and offers students a variety of undergraduate and postgraduate study programs across its five campuses. Study areas include business, marketing, finance, leadership, entrepreneurship, management and project management, analytics, tourism, digital management, health services, and information technology. KBS has campuses in Sydney, Adelaide, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth. Each school location offers students an excellent learning and social environment.

KBS puts internships at the heart of its educational model. Thanks to its strong industry connections in a number of different organisations, KBS students get to enjoy an internship opportunity as part of their course, allowing them to gain work experience while studying. This gives students a substantial competitive edge upon graduation, with two in five students who carried out an academic internship offered work in the first trimester of 2022.

The KBS campuses all benefit from central city locations, offering students a warm student environment and a vibrant city life. Facilities across all campuses include modern libraries and accommodation, industry-leading computer labs, and cafes. A range of student services further enhance the student experience at KBS.

Students have access to specialised services including tailored careers advice and academic support, as well as counselling and individual support, if required. International students are welcomed with an orientation programme to help them adjust to student life and living in Australia.

As a result of all this, it's no surprise that overseas students rate Kaplan higher than any other public university in Australia for quality of experience, teaching quality and student support *.

* Data taken from the 2021 International Student Experience Survey report, published in August 2022. The report includes data from 61,000 international students who responded to the QILT rankings 2020survey, which is funded by the Australian Government Department of Education.

What's new

What's new

Kaplan Business School is delighted to announce the launch of its new information technology (IT) courses, with teaching commencing in March 2023 (Trimester 1).

The course range includes: 

  • Diploma of Information Technology
  • Bachelor of Information Technology
  • Graduate Certificate in Information Technology
  • Graduate Diploma of Information Technology
  • Master of Information Technology
  • Master of Information Technology (Extension)

These new course offerings have been developed in response to significant and growing demand for IT skills in Australia, and globally, as businesses and organisations struggle to scale their digital operations in pace with rapid technological advancements.

TEQSA has approved KBS' application to become a limited Self-Accrediting Authority (SAA) institution.

Out of 145 Institutes of Higher Education in Australia, KBS is now one of only nine institutions that have currently been granted this status.

Its new Self-Accrediting Authority designation means that KBS now enjoys the same status as universities by being able to self-accredit courses without TEQSA approval, including KBS programs in accounting, business and management, tourism, and sales and marketing. This is a recognition of the trust and confidence TEQSA has in the school's quality assurance and governance practices.
