Good Minds Ask Why. Great Minds Ask Why Not?

At UNSW Business School we believe that whilst asking ‘why’ may lead to knowledge, asking ‘why not’ creates innovation and progress. This ethos is at the heart of UNSW Business School and reflects our pioneering attitude, determination of spirit, and entrepreneurial flair.

From postgraduate and research programs to our AGSM MBA, UNSW Business School offers you an extensive choice of study areas to choose from.
