Rule #1: “if it’s expensive it must be good quality and if it’s low cost it must be low quality” While this formula works for 90% of the products you are buying, it is not the same when choosing an education in Australia. If you are looking at completing your undergraduate business degree in Australia, we can highly recommend a Bachelor of Business Program at Kaplan Business School Australia (KBS).
