Enterprise Geelong opportunities

Our Geelong business students can apply what they’ve learnt in real workplaces, thanks to the Enterprise Geelong Tertiary Business Skills Program.

Intensive units

If you can’t attend weekly classes or just want to attend classes for a shorter period of time across a trimester, consider studying in intensive mode. 

Depending on your units, you could study in two blocks of two consecutive days – or full-day classes spread across several weeks. Further teaching support is offered to students online.

My business internship looks good on my resume because the YMCA is a big company, especially in America. It has opened up more opportunities for me overseas.
