As Australia’s only independent agricultural and equine business management college, Marcus Oldham offers students a unique educational experience.
Since 1962, Marcus Oldham has built an enviable reputation both nationally and internationally for preparing business leaders who pursue successful careers in the farming, agribusiness and equine management sectors.
The National University Experience Survey 2014 revealed that Marcus Oldham topped the Student Satisfaction Survey. The results identified that Marcus Oldham is ranked in the top five percent of all forty Australian universities for the Quality of Entire Educational Experience and Overall Quality of Teaching. Marcus Oldham also performed above the average achieved of all universities on all scales measured by the survey which comprised Skills Development; Learner Engagement; Student Support and Learning Resources.
The difference with Marcus is its unique ability to develop the individual. Similar to the Harvard experience, the Marcus model of education is based on case study learning. With high student contact hours, small class sizes, excellent lecturers who skilfully deliver the theory with practical application, the education received by students at Marcus Oldham is second to none.
The residential campus nestled on 200 hectares in Geelong and only 20 minutes from surf beaches and 50 minutes to Melbourne provides an enjoyable environment to both live and study.
