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 covering all 40 of Australia's universities and 15 Non-University Higher Education Institutions, revealed that Marcus Oldham has significantly outscored the average in both the Overall Quality of Teaching category and the Quality of Entire Educational Experience category where it is ranked in the top five percent.
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. With students attending the College from all across Australia, a truly enriching social and learning experience is enjoyed by all.
