Research excellence

UQ Business School is renowned internationally for its research work. From corporate sustainability to customer rage, financial reporting to executive pay and performance, our experts are working to find solutions to some of the world’s most pressing business issues.

We are one of the top three business schools in the country for management research. In the 2015 Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) assessment our business & management; information systems, and tourism was classed as well above world standard', while accounting, auditing & accountability; banking, finance & investment, and marketing were classed as 'above world standard'.

Many business school staff are leading authorities in their field whose work features regularly in scholarly journals and in the media. They work with industry, including some of Australia’s leading companies, as well as government and not-for-profit organisations to help them address the challenges they face.

One example is the Sustainable Business Unit, which is led by world authority Professor Andrew Griffiths and is at the forefront of current thinking on climate change and sustainability.

We have an excellent track record for winning Australian Research Council (ARC) grants, the majority of them awarded for projects undertaken with an industry partner. 

As well as our staff, we can also draw on the skills of our associates, current HDR students and HDR graduates who work with us in postdoctoral roles.

UQ Business School is dedicated to hiring and developing staff who excel at teaching while maintaining rigorous research programs. Their theoretical and applied research helps to inform their teaching and means that courses are infused with up-to-the-minute content relevant to a range of business situations.
