The Business School

The Business School is a world-class learning institution, at the forefront of business education for almost 30 years. We bring active and positive change to business and society, enabling regional, national and international businesses to develop and thrive. The Business School is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, enabling collaboration with similar institutions, strategising with our contemporaries and sharing expertise. We understand the highly competitive nature of the global business environment and to help you succeed we deliver in three crucial areas.

  1. Providing outstanding education to develop the graduate skills needed to succeed in business.
  2. Undertaking world-leading research aimed at changing the world for the better.
  3. Engaging with the world of professional practice to drive businesses, organisations and industries forward.

We believe that all our activities need to inform each other. What we learn in professional practice needs to inform our research and education. What we discover through our research needs to improve our curriculum and the way we work with organisations. Everything we do influences each other. We call this Fusion. All our courses are designed to make the most of the educational, professional and research expertise that you’ll be surrounded by, giving you a unique and memorable experience, along with an education like no other.
