Program Committees

No content

Student Program Committees are a new UQ Business School initiative where students collaborate and work closely with their Program Leader who is an academic staff member. Students are encouraged to share collective insights and feedback regarding the overall student experience and other program related matters.

Seven Student Program Committees were created last year, one for each major degree program. The Student Program Committees are an avenue for the broader student cohort to share their experiences, opinions, feedback and recommendations with staff. 

Through these committees, students have the opportunity to build leadership skills, impact the future of these programs and create useful networks.

If you’d like to be a Student Program Committee member for your program contact us on student.committee@business.uq.edu.au

Student Program Committees

Bachelor of Business Management Student Committee

The Business Management Student Committee is a group led by students who are dedicated to providing real and up-to-date feedback regarding the Business Management Program.

We aim to help students throughout the semester with any issues or queries regarding their program or the overall UQ experience.

Our approachable team is here to take suggestions or answer any questions, bringing this information to program leaders to improve the program for current and future students.

Working closely with students and UQ Business School staff allows a bridge between the gap of students and staff, creating a seamless communication channel.
