    Advanced Diploma of Management

    Attending Martin was one of the best years of my life. I learnt so much and gained a whole lot more knowledge in business and other related fields that put me in a great position to make the transition to University. At Martin, I gained a better understanding of business, made great friends and got into my desired university course.

    Advanced Diploma of Business Management

    I chose to study the Advanced Diploma of Business Management at Martin because it was perfect preparation for my career. I have met wonderful people throughout my Martin journey - from other students and teachers to very helpful student services staff. I am currently working part time in the Department of Public Prosecution where every day I utilise the skills I gained at Martin.
