    I decided to choose this college over others as they turn enthusiasm into achievement and groundbreaking theory into cutting-edge practice. I'll quickly develop skills, knowledge, and experience that will make employers sit up and listen. My GPA was 8, and I had to submit a common application form for $75.

    Course Curriculum :

    In the Bachelor of Business Analytics, we learn the fundamentals of business, including how to solve business challenges and how to analyze data strategically. We also develop a combination of problem-solving, critical thinking, and communication skills across business, marketing, commerce, and technology.

    I joined this univeristy because of it's amazing reputation and the fact that La Trobe is a university known for making a positive difference in the lives of the students, partners, and communities. They will become an even more valued and relevant university because of the way we respond to their needs in this time of great local and national crisis. My GPA was 7, and I was required to submit a common application for $75.

    Course Curriculum :

    Cybercrime is now a widespread threat and a mainstream concern that can only be combated by highly-skilled specialists - not IT professionals alone. La Trobe's Bachelor of Cybersecurity is a brand new degree that addresses the global shortage of cybersecurity professionals and prepares us with skills across IT, business, law, policy, and strategic communication.

    I wanted to do an MBA overseas, so I decided to do it in Australia. After doing extensive studies, I discovered the University that matched my overall criteria. My bachelor's degree resulted in a 92 percent, which helped the admission process go more smoothly. For the online application, I had charged a $75 application fee.

    Course Curriculum :

    The course is structured in such a way that we can develop leadership and management skills. Several topics were discussed in the course that provided us with leadership skills as well as the skills needed to work professionally in an organisation. Statistics, cost analysis and management, operational behaviour, and other related topics are included.

    Course Curriculum :
