The Australian School of Business - Number 1. Where you want to be

The Australian School of Business at The University of New South Wales (UNSW) in Sydney is Australia’s leading business school and a centre of excellence in business education and research in the Asia Pacific region. The School harnesses the power and prestige of both the UNSW Faculty of Commerce and Economics and the AGSM MBA and Executive Programs to deliver undergraduate and postgraduate programs, research programs and executive education. We have over 11,000 students and 400 staff, bringing cultural diversity and an international focus that creates a dynamic, cutting-edge education environment.

Leading the way in teaching and research

As one of the leading research universities in the Asia Pacific region the Australian School of Business at UNSW attracts the best and the brightest teachers to help students to reach their potential. In fact, the School was ranked number one for excellence in teaching and learning by the Australian government (DEST Learning and Teaching Performance Fund 07/08) and the School of Accounting was recently ranked top in accounting research among all Asia Pacific universities by Review of Quantitative Finance and Accounting (2008).

Furthermore, the full-time AGSM MBA Program at the Australian School of Business has long been recognised as Australia’s premier graduate business program, and it’s ranking by the Financial Times (UK, 2008) as Australia’s number one MBA program is testament to this.

Advancing your career

Programs offered by the School cater for a diverse range of students; those who wish to develop general business skills, obtain specific professional accreditation, develop their leadership capabilities or attain an advanced qualification in their chosen field of study.

The Hobson’s Good Universities Guide 2009 lists the Australian School of Business as having the highest average undergraduate starting salaries in Australia for Business & Management graduates, Accounting graduates and Computing & IT graduates. Professor Alec Cameron, Dean of the Australian School of Business, says, “These outstanding results confirm the very high standing of our graduates in the business community. Our students are some of the most highly sought after in the country and the excellent starting salaries reflect this.”

Working directly with industry

The School’s programs have been developed through consultation and participation with senior executives from a wide variety of organisations including employers, industry associations and recruiters. This engagement with key stakeholders results in programs that are truly industry informed and industry relevant. Business partners are also actively involved in the curricular and co-curricular life of the School as adjunct teaching staff, Executives-in-Residence, mentors and advisors.

The Australian School of Business is entrusted to prepare postgraduate students for admission to membership of peak professional bodies including: CPA Australia, the Institute of Chartered Accountants in Australia, the Institute of Actuaries of Australia and the Institute of Actuaries (London). Accreditation is supported by a rigorous quality assurance process. Other peak industry bodies providing accreditation include the Australian Computer Society and the Australian Marketing Institute.

Continual development

The speed of change in the business world is increasing exponentially. Organisations are becoming more fluid, responsive and flexible, therefore, universities need to be increasingly innovative and entrepreneurial. This is a challenge relished by the Australian School of Business as the tools at our disposal (teaching and research) are some of the most powerful in Australian business education and enable the continual redesign and redevelopment of our programs.

In Semester 1, 2009 the School will be offering a new Master of Commerce specialisation in Supply Chain and Logistics which has been developed in response to the need for skilled Operations Managers in the increasingly internationalised business world.

International students who are interested in distance learning should consider the Master of Business and Technology Program (MBT), which provides the intellectual tools for management in today's technology-driven environments. The MBT Program is a part-time program and is available to students living outside of Australia. This enables participants the option of studying towards a UNSW degree without having to leave their home country via interactive web-based classes with other students from Australia and abroad.
