“I’d like to express my gratitude to the staff of the University of Southern Queensland, and particularly the local staff located in Johannesburg, for the determined support that I have received in the last few years. It has been a pleasure to be enrolled with such a quality tertiary institution with special reference to the efficiency of the staff. During my time with USQ, I made a number of new friends, both amongst the fellow students and also the lecturers. I found the university to be very open to suggestions and always willing to assist in any matter. For future students, I can undoubtedly recommend the USQ for further studies” Gert J S de Leeuw (PrTechni, BA, NDIp, BEngT)

“I’d like to thank you and your staff for the excellent support and co-operation I received whilst studying for my MBA. It is not often that one experiences such commitment and genuine concern. I think part of the reason I completed the course as quickly as I did was having you pushing and encouraging me along the way. The course itself I found to be comprehensive and challenging. The units in the course were very detailed and I found the support tools to be very helpful when it came to drafting my assignments. The quality and standard of the course is of an exceptionally high standard and contains practical examples, which helps one understand the content more easily. I’m proud to have obtained my degree through the University of Southern Queensland and would highly recommend the institution to anyone who wants to further his or her qualifications in any field. Thanking you all for your assistance”. Shameel Joosub, Vodacom: Managing Director

“My experience during the course of studies towards my MBA has been a rich and rewarding one. From a pure knowledge point of view, I’ve gained immense insight into an array of study fields from finance to human resources. Coming from an accounting background, I can say that my studies have assisted in transforming me into a better rounded individual. Viewing my studies from a support and methodology point of view, it became apparent that USQ is very much geared towards the telematic studying system in that the ease of dealing with and rapid response from both the Australian and Johannesburg staff has been commendable. I would encourage any prospective student to seriously consider the MBA program offered by USQ”. Jacques Boshoff

“I wanted to say that I really enjoyed doing your MBA. The flexibility of it was very important for me as a wife, mother and working woman. I was very interested in doing an MBA because I believe my calling is in the corporate world and I perceived a gap in my knowledge. I wanted to understand more fully what makes businesses succeed or not. The USQ MBA helped me to do this especially since most of the time I was working by myself through the material and had to figure out things by hard work, research and emails to lecturers. I can say I have emerged from this experience more confident in tackling business issues”. Mwangala Marilyn Bonna
