Almost two-thirds (62%) of Deakin Business School academic staff have overseas professional or study experience, and international students account for around one-third of all enrolments.
In an increasingly global workplace, our vision is to create graduates with enhanced international capabilities, and an intercultural understanding among students, staff and the wider community.
The overarching internationalisation strategy for DBS is to ensure our graduates are prepared to positively and effectively contribute to the global business environment, and to ensure our students are able to adapt to an ever-changing world. In order to achieve this goal, the focus on five dimensions critical to this success are outlined below.
Established in 2017, the International Advisory Board consists of highly experienced global academics, industry professionals and Deakin Business School alumni. Members work to develop internationalisation strategies, industry connections and recommendations for new initiatives, helping Deakin Business School to expand our global presence.
