UNSW Business School provides world-class education, substantial career opportunities, extensive industry connections and a vibrant student community.
We rank within the
top 50 Business Schools worldwide, not in the least because we think deeply about what aspects of a business degree will be vital years from now. Expert insights on future industry trends shape our
research. Our academic experts include world-leading academics like
Harald van Heerde – ranked 7th worldwide for his contribution to the field of marketing. Our industry experts include our global maverick
Professors of Practice and the CEOs and company directors in our
Business Advisory Council. Their insights ensure you graduate with relevant and valuable knowledge.
Our courses give you the flexibility to balance your education and your lifestyle. The UNSW academic year has
three trimester study periods - which means you can finish a degree faster by fitting in more units of study. Alternatively, you can study less and have more time for other responsibilities. Our courses are available full-time, part-time and online and come with
Learning Support to strengthen your potential for success.
Although our courses have some of the highest ATAR entry requirements in Australia, we also support academic excellence through our
Pathway programs. Your studies will lead to careers in
banking & finance,
information systems & technology management,
risk & actuarial, and
taxation & business law. For specific course details, visit

UNSW has produced more millionaires than any other Australian university* - UNSW Business School is proud to count
Atlassian founders Scott Farquhar and Mike Cannon-Brookes among our global alumni. Also, our graduates are more likely to gain full-time employment and earn a higher starting wage compared to most Australian universities.**
A great career is meaningful and unpredictable - it could involve anything from launching your own business start-up to negotiating a lifetime of different opportunities. You gain a competitive edge through real-world decision-making, technical problem solving and communication skills, and the confidence to pursue passions along divergent career paths.
You can build your skillset and confidence through
Career Accelerator - a program exclusive to our students that integrates your business studies with hands-on work experiences and career development. Career Accelerator provides
internships and consultancy projects in Australia and overseas. The program also offers
social entrepreneurship practicums for business-minded students who want to leave the world better than the way they found it.

You are in good company. Since 1955, UNSW business faculties have established robust, diverse and global relationships with government, industry and graduates. Our connections are your opportunities.
You have access to an international network of more than 90,000 business graduates in established careers. Our Career Accelerator program connects you to Business School alumni and CPA Australia for
mentoring, career advice and support. The program also holds
casual networking events - so you can check out companies and decide which industry or organisation feels right.
Organisations like Google, Deloitte and Microsoft assess the career potential in our students during
international business case competitions. These competitions involve travelling overseas to show you can
solve a real-world business problem better than teams from other elite business schools.
In addition to opportunities for professional development, our industry connections sponsor financial
prizes, awards and
scholarships that can support your studies and research. In 2019 they changed the lives of
300 students with $4M in prizes.
Study, work and play with some of the most motivated Australian and international students. With Sydney's vibrant lifestyle, you could be doing anything from socialising with techpreneurs to lazing on beautiful beaches. Our campus is 3 kilometres from Coogee Beach and 6 kilometres from the central business district – and you can
live on campus.
The campus is so big it has its own postcode. There are
many places to eat and drink. You can shop for groceries, do banking, send letters, get a medical certificate and have your teeth checked without leaving. But when you do need to leave campus, there is a
direct bus to Central Station – which connects you to Sydney trains and buses.

clubs and societies hold events on campus, around the city and interstate. You can join a club based on what you study, or what you’re interested in (sneakers and cryptocurrency perhaps?). It’s where you’ll find like-minded people and make friends. Find out how friendly we are here by watching the video below.
Finally, we can’t forget
The Roundhouse - the place to see touring bands, hear thought-provoking speakers and enjoy big parties. It opened in 1961, and by the time you graduate we’re sure you’ll have a few stories that begin ‘This one time, at The Roundhouse…’.
