About the School

The School's vision comes to life through the collective efforts of a committed group of expert staff from a diverse range of disciplinary backgrounds, working within and across the Faculty and University.

The School of Business offers undergraduate, postgraduate and research degrees enriched with co-curricular learning that prepares students to be well-informed individuals for the contemporary world of work.

Staff in the School lead, inspire and facilitate students to further engage in their lives and the contexts in which they live. Graduates are equipped to be critical, creative thinkers, effective communicators and collaborators; ethical, engaged professionals; and employable enterprising professionals.

The School of Business encourages a quality research culture for both its researchers and postgraduate research students. High quality research training and development
programs enhance the scholarship potential and expertise of researchers and research students.

In 2020, an acclaimed staff member was recognised for being in the top 1% of researchers in Artificial Intelligence and in 2019, a number of academic staff from the School were identified as being in the world’s top 2% of researchers in the following categories: 

  • Environmental Sciences;

The world-class quality of the research efforts in the discipline of Information Systems were confirmed by the 2018 Australian Research Council’s Excellence in Research (ERA) as being ranked at world standard.

Other leading research areas in the School are aligned with the University’s Centre for Health Research in the areas of health economics and policy-related research.

The School of Business plays an active role in working with community partners, focusing on academic programs and undertaking applied research that is relevant to community priorities, and which contributes to the University vision of being an innovative, student-focused, connected and forward-thinking University, that creates a better future through excellence in learning and teaching and research.
