Macquarie’s Professional and Community Engagement (PACE) Program won the Employability Award at Tuesday night’s Australian Financial Review Higher Education Awards.
PACE units are now part of all Bachelors degrees at Macquarie and the PACE team have been working hard to enhance employability outcomes for Macquarie students.
It’s great to see these efforts formally recognised.
