College Vision and Values

Our purpose

To create an environment that enables knowledge exchange through impactful research informed by industry and sharing through a range of contemporary education offerings, publications and thought leadership.

Our purpose is underpinned by the principles of quality, collaboration, big ideas and putting people first.


Our Vision

COBL’s vision is trusted business education, research, and practice for viable, responsible, and fair futures.

Trusted business education: Industry and research co-created education, with blended delivery, practice-orientation and authentic assessment

Trusted research and practice: Evidence-based, leading academics and researchers with applied and future relevant thought-leadership

Viable, responsible and fair futures: Sustainable and successful enterprises and leaders, able to navigate and act on business, ethical and social dilemmas


Our Mission

To balance the tension between shareholders and stakeholders.

Through our globally connected campuses, the College of Business and Law develops the person, the leader and the enterprise with the knowledge and skills they require to create positive, sustainable, and fair futures.

Creativity, resilience, commercial acumen, business leadership, justice, and social impact are combined with uniquely human capabilities (collaboration, influence, relationship management, critical thinking and confidence) to positively impact economic futures, society, enterprises, human well-being and the environment.

New knowledge and knowledge exchange is facilitated through insights and perspectives created from the integration of high quality and applied research, education excellence, and industry partnerships.
