UQ Business School MBA Industry Projects

UQ Business School MBA Industry Projects

Does your organisation have a business problem that you know is important, but you just haven’t had time to make progress on solving?


It could be questions about strategy, international expansion, operations design, marketing, innovation, or business model design. Often, these are longer-term problems, that just keep getting pushed back as we run day-to-day operations.

UQ Business School is running a program designed to help.

Over the past few years, our Master of Business Administration (MBA) students have delivered projects addressing these kinds of problems for more than 25 industry partners, including: Lorna Jane, OneSteel, the Australian Rugby Union, Place Design Group, Ludowici Seals, QIC, Western Australia Indigenous Tourism Operators’ Council, and many more. We would love to work with you as well.


The projects are designed so that a team of MBA students at the end of their program will work closely with you for three to four months to:

  • clarify the project scope;
  • engage with people that know the industry;
  • dig into secondary data sources;
  • identify a strategy to address your issue; and
  • provide you with a report that includes the strategy, an implementation plan, and all of the data and contacts that the team has gathered.

As the top MBA program in Australia*, our students are current and future business leaders – and the quality and business impacts from these consulting projects are exceptionally high.

We can design and implement projects for large corporations, not-for-profits, small and medium enterprises, government departments and even startups.


The cost of these projects is low and tailored to your particular situation.

These MBA consulting projects work best when they are set up to address your genuine business problems, and not just viewed as an academic exercise. This means that you need to be willing to engage with the team as the project unfolds, act on the recommended actions, and maintain a focus on solving the one specific business issue.

If you would like to learn more, please contact engage@business.uq.edu.au today.


We look forward to working with you.
