Our Mission and Vision - Faculty of Business and Law

Student diversityOur mission and vision

The Faculty of Business and Law's mission is to engage with our students and partners in the provision of flexible educational programs and relevant research.

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 on-line 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 on-line 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.
