Your child's career

Your child will have an edge in the job market when they graduate from Macquarie. All our courses focus on building the two skill sets that employers tell us they want in a graduate: hard skills – technical or discipline-specific capabilities – and soft skills such as problem solving, digital literacy, entrepreneurship, initiative and teamwork.

Our unique location in the heart of Australia’s largest high-tech precinct, our students have many opportunities to connect with future employers in some of the country’s leading organisations – while they’re studying.
