As UQ Business School celebrates the tenth anniversary of its foundation, it is encouraging students to look ten years ahead to consider their career goals and the skills and experience they will need to attain them.
The slogan - What are you doing Friday, 1 July 2022? – is appearing on billboards and in press and online advertisements as part of a campaign to raise awareness of the benefits that business education can bring to the individual, to businesses and to the wider economy.
UQ Business School was formed in 2002 with the merger of The University of Queensland’s Schools of Commerce and Management. It became the first business school in Australia to win approval from the two most influential accrediting bodies - the US-based AACSB International and Europe’s EQUIS.
The school has been ranked in the world’s top 50 for executive education by the Financial Times and in the top 50 worldwide for its MBA program by The Economist. The MBA program has also been placed in the top two in Australia by the Financial Review BOSS Magazine and awarded the highest possible 5-star rating for seven consecutive years by the national rating body, the GMAA.
UQ Business School continues to expand its services and later this year will launch the Owner Manager Program, the first executive program in Australia which is specifically designed solely for the needs of SME business owners.
Andrew Griffiths, Dean of UQ Business School, said: “In the decade since its foundation, UQ Business School has made remarkable progress in establishing itself as one of the top three business schools in Australia and one of the best in the world. As we celebrate the anniversary, we’re encouraging students and corporate clients to look at where they want to be in ten years’ time and how we can help them get there.”
“UQ Business School will continue to find ways to improve and, through initiatives such as the Owner Manager Program, to extend our services to meet the needs of the wider business sector. Through our teaching, research and consultancy, the school will play a key role over the next ten years in helping Australia to develop the skills and the knowledge necessary to support a thriving modern business economy.”
