One review on “MBA Program – La Trobe University – La Trobe Business School”
La Trobe University, which was named after the state’s first Lieutenant-Governor, Sir Charles Joseph La Trobe, was established in 1964 and officially opened on 8 March 1967 when teaching commenced with some 500 students. The main campus buildings were designed by Melbourne architecture firm, Yuncken Freeman and are connected by a series of raised walkways. The Bundoora campus is the largest university campus in the Southern Hemisphere and has many facilities such as restaurants, bars, shops, banks and an art gallery. It also has three on-campus residential colleges: Menzies, Glenn and Chisholm. La Trobe University offers subjects and courses ranging from science, health and engineering to arts, social sciences and commerce.
I like the design and layout of the Bundoora campus the core of which is separated from surrounding areas by an outer ring ‘moat’ of car parking and an open space network of parks, water and recreation areas. Also, with a pedestrian network at both ground and first floor levels, most academic functions are within five minutes walk and are centred around the Library and major lecture theatres.
