Greetings from Chifley

Greetings from Chifley at Torrens

Changes for Trimester 1 2016

The integration of Chifley Business School into Torrens University Australia  is progressing and a special congratulations must go to you the students - you’ve taken the changes in your stride and are flourishing academically within the new assessment and module structure.

In preparation for the changes we will be sending you a series of communications on new tools we are adding to the Chifley at Torrens learning toolbox (and no it isn’t a spanner in the works!).

We will be introducing a new dynamic learning platform (with training), more academic skills workshops and further opportunities such as The Greatest Degree on Earth.

MBA Program Director

Say hello to CHIP

  • 01 Sep 2015 - Chifley students are fully transitioned to Torrens subjects and approved courses
  • 14 Sep 2015 - Chifley students began their first study period in Torrens subjects

So what’s next?
