Message from the Executive Dean


Studying business, information systems and fashion and design at Holmes Institute is the first step to an enhanced career trajectory.

Each of the Faculty's suite of approved courses systematically builds key competencies, which will become significant assets when you enter your career in this increasingly competitive global business environment. Each unit has clear learning outcomes that cumulatively result in a demonstration of entry level skills for managers, accountants, IT professionals and fashion executives and entrepreneurs.

As a student, you will face many challenges as you progress through your chosen course. You will be pleased to discover that faculty members are highly qualified, with recent business experience and are very supportive of their students. They are also strongly committed to your personal development and will guide you through the challenges ahead. They are simply passionate about their teaching.

This is the Holmes advantage that I am confident you will experience.

I anticipate that the information on our website about our courses will lead you to make an informed decision about your career path. I personally hope to meet all of you at some stage during your studies - when you join Holmes Institute or at your ultimate graduation ceremony or some touch-point in between. Welcome to our caring, supportive community. I urge you to set new goals, to stretch your personal potential. Seize the moment!
