Business Advisory Council

The UNSW Australia Business School Advisory Council is an external, expert and experienced group of industry practitioners who advise the Dean and serve as a reference point for the Business School. The Council ensures that our programs and courses are relevant in today's changing business environment.

The Advisory Council assists the Business School to carry out its vision of being recognised globally as a leading research-intensive business school renowned for its students and staff, teaching quality, relevance and innovation.

Business Advisory Council members are leaders in industry and government who commit to a program of active engagement with the Business School, based on the Council’s Terms of Reference.

Business Advisory Council members are leaders in industry and government. They are committed to ensuring that the Business School realises its vision of becoming a leading centre for business education and research in the Asia-Pacific region.

Membership is by invitation only and there are 51 members, many of whom are chairs or chief executives of major organisations.
The Council lends its energy, experience and influence in pursuit of our Business School's mission. Members of the Council’s Executive Committee play an active role in developing and implementing the 2015 School’s Strategic Plan. In general, the Executive Committee enables the School to:
