Business shouldn’t be about maximising wealth for a few. At the Peter Faber Business School, you’ll learn how to use the tools and skills of the business world to empower your community.

As signatories of the United Nations Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME), we build our curriculum around a strong emphasis on governance, ethical leadership, social responsibility and sustainability.

A global outlook

With a comprehensive range of undergraduate and postgraduate degrees on offer, we cater to students at all levels of their career. You’ll learn from global experts who will give you real-world case studies. And we run a number of international study tours so you could find yourself fast-tracking your degree by studying two units at our Rome Campus (and exploring the sights) during the winter break.
