We are committed to extending the boundaries of business and legal education. We aim to achieve this through close relationships with professional associations, other education providers and universities, business, employers and government - across Australia and internationally.

We invite you to explore the Faculty website to learn more about our teaching and research activities and to use the contacts provided if you have any questions.
Our mission and vision
The Faculty's mission is to prepare graduates for careers of the future. We harness emerging technologies to facilitate innovative, borderless, and personalised education. Our research informs our practice and impacts the communities with whom we engage.
Our vision is to be recognised nationally and internationally for driving the digital frontier to enable globally connected and supported education, and research that makes a difference to the communities we serve.
Our undergraduate, graduate and doctoral degrees are informed by scholarship and are relevant to both national and global contemporary issues. Flexible learning strategies provide a distinctive student experience. The Faculty's teaching aims to be innovative utilising face-to-face teaching and online technologies to ensure a high level of flexibility for the diverse learning needs of our students.
The Faculty's academic staff are engaged in applied research across the business and law disciplines and are focused on issues which are of relevance to government, business and community organisations. To this end, we actively seek partnerships with these organisations, other like-minded universities and alumni.
Our students come from diverse backgrounds and we value this diversity. Graduates are confident and competent in the use of online technology and are ready to make a significant contribution to the organisations they serve. They are highly valued by employers for both their knowledge and their graduate attributes.
The Faculty will achieve these outcomes through the synergy that comes from our research and teaching programs in business and law.
