Message From the Head of School

Welcome to the School of Business

John Benson

The School of Business is a dynamic, innovative and industry-focused school that offers a range of undergraduate, postgraduate and higher degree by research programs. Since its inception in 1998, the School has focused on providing a flexible and international learning experience that meets the needs of industry, government and the global business community. Our various programs have been designed to produce graduates who have strong analytical and problem solving skills; who are able to produce innovative solutions; and who are able to apply their knowledge and skills to address comtemporary business challenges.

Underpinning all our programs is the need to develop graduates who are able to engage in an increasingly globalized world, exhibit cross-cultural competence, and demonstrate strong ethical values. Our aim is to develop the next generation of business leaders and to ensure our graduates can seamlessly enter the business world. Our staff are highly trained and are involved in applied research projects of national and regional importance. Research-led educational initiatives in the school expose students to current research methodologies and creative teaching pedagogies that enrich their educational and learning experience.

I invite you to consider joining the School of Business for your undergraduate, postgraduate and higher degree by research studies. We are fully accredited by the key professional bodies as well as by the AACSB International which ensures all our programs are world class. I can assure you that our leading academics and ‘explorers’, who are pushing the boundaries of knowledge, will provide you with the best training and state-of-the-art knowledge to allow you to contribute to the sustainable development  of organizations and the wider business community in an increasingly complex and knowledge-driven world.
