Message from the Dean

Innovation at the Graduate School of Business and Law

Industry engaged learning is a key part of the education we offer at the Graduate School of Business and Law. Our EMBA and MBA students have the chance to be involved in real industry-based projects through consulting courses that are led by our academics and also staffed by alumni and industry mentors.

Our law students develop real world practice skills and engage in moots, interviewing and negotiation simulations as part of their core curriculum. We offer clinical legal education electives, in partnership with the Centre for Innovative Justice, where students can engage with clients and conduct legal research for law reform projects. Students can also be placed at community legal services and undertake internships at private legal firms and government agencies. There are opportunities to visit courts and shadow tribunal members, Magistrates and Judges to gain insights into legal practice.

Staff at the Graduate School of Business and Law are committed to providing high quality teaching and research that prepares students for the world of work.  We strive to help each student achieve their goals and endeavour to mentor them to take their next career step.  We welcome students into our learning community and foster their growth to meet the challenges of the emerging digital economy.
