Vishal Singh, Bachelor of Business
When I came to Alphacrucis College for a ‘stickybeak’ I completely fell in love with the college. The more I looked into what the Bachelor of Business course had to offer, I knew it was the college for me. In particular, it was easy to ascertain that the structure of the Bachelor of Business course with its Leadership major was holistically intended to provision you with not only the essential introductory business theory and skills required, but encapsulated it within an ethical framework preparing you for both a successful business career and life as an innovative principled thinker and leader. Having an already establish career and being a father of four, Alphacrucis Bachelor of Business coarse recognised my need for flexibility, with subjects being delivered within the program through face-to-face classes and online, presented through weekly lectures, week-long lecture intensives, evening classes, and online video podcasts. I have utilised a combination of all forums, aiding to launch student interaction and resulting in the formation of many lifelong friendships.
Joel Hingston, Bachelor of Theology graduate
Studying with AC has allowed my understanding of faith to be challenged. Largely due to the wide variety of sources and perspectives that AC’s courses employ, I was encouraged to question and analyse views and to think critically. There has been a nice level of freedom throughout my studies that allowed me to search my system of beliefs in a safe and well guided environment. Now at the end of my Bachelor’s Degree my faith is stronger and more vibrant because of this freedom.
Jessica Sanchez, Bachelor of Business & Bachelor of Theology
Transferring my business studies to Alphacrucis was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made! When I realized that I could combine my passion for business with my passion for theology by pursuing a double degree with AC it was a no brainer – I signed up straight away and was so blessed to be able to be equipped to build the church from both a business and theological perspective.
