The equine related industries provide some of the world’s most exciting and fulfilling experiences. Whether in breeding, racing, equestrian or interrelated activities, the opportunities are boundless. High quality skills, experience and a well-rounded education will open doors for graduates of Marcus Oldham’s Diploma of Equine Management/Advanced Diploma of Equine Business Management*.
Internationally recognised by major sectors of the horse industry, the Diploma of Equine Management/Advanced Diploma of Equine Business Management* aims to equip students with the practical husbandry and business skills necessary for a successful career in their chosen field. The intensive one-year Diploma of Equine Management is structured equally into three broad areas: practical and horse management skills, equine science and business management.
Developed in close consultation with industry, students are exposed to a diverse range of prominent leaders specialising in riding, training and management techniques, business philosophies, industry views, marketing strategies and administrative practices. To ensure students have obtained essential horse management skills, all students participate in horse handling and have the option to elect the riding stream.
Marcus Oldham lecturers are supported by a range of specialist guest lecturers throughout the course. Equally important is the further opportunity and insight students obtain from outside the College grounds. An exciting international study tour and an eleven-week industry training program are both a feature of the course and allow students to visit and work with prominent industry leaders and enterprises in both Australia and New Zealand.
This course is available to both Australian and international applicants.
