Welcome from the Head of School

The School of Management is one of eight schools that comprise the UNSW Business School.  We have 40 academics and professional support staff, along with 36 research students.

Our mission is to conduct high quality teaching and research.  Our main areas of expertise include organisational behaviour, international business, human resource management, industrial relations, strategy and entrepreneurship, innovation, organisation theory, and the social and psychological aspects of management.

Academics in the School publish their research in world-leading journals, using a variety of theoretical and methodological approaches, and collaborate with leading researchers around the world.  Our colleagues emphasise the social relevance and practical use of their research as well as its academic rigour.  The School organises a Visitors program that attracts leading scholars from around the world and a seminar series that showcases latest development in a variety of fields. Our aim is to maintain an intellectually stimulating and supportive research culture.

The School offers a range of undergraduate and postgraduate degree programs.  We have majors in Management, International Business, and Human Resource Management in the undergraduate B.Comm programme, and have specialisations in Human Resource Management in the M.Comm alongside the Masters in International Business.  We also contribute to new programmes in Analytics, and to the MBA and executive programmes at the Australian Graduate School of Management (AGSM).  We are committed to ensuring our students enjoy a very high quality learning experience that prepares them for rewarding and fulfilling careers.

The School is also a leading postgraduate research training institution.  Students can undertake a Masters of Philosophy or PhD in the subject areas covered by the School.  To view areas of expertise within the School please visit our Staff pages.
