Tuesday, 16 August 2011  Features

Top business students from Australia and New Zealand will gather in Sydney this week at the 2011 National Honours Colloquium to present their projects to senior academics in their fields of expertise.

Hosted by the Australian School of Business, the National Honours Colloquium provides an exceptional opportunity for Honours students to discuss their thinking with peers, leading academics and business professionals.

The Colloquium will provide a stimulating and supportive environment for Honours students to gain an understanding of the latest business research across a wide range of disciplines, including accounting, economics, marketing and organisation and management.

2011 will also mark the launch of the Population Ageing stream in which two University of New South Wales students will present their findings.

Students who participate also have the opportunity to network with high-profile business professionals and receive constructive feedback on their research projects. The colloquium also affords students with insight into the future of business research and practice, which is particularly valuable to those who decide to continue their study at a postgraduate level.

Professor Roger Simnett, Associate Dean of Research commented on the event. "The Colloquium provides students with real-world insights into the latest business research, as well as an understanding of the current issues facing businesses in Australia and New Zealand. We are proud to offer these high-achieving students a forum to discuss their research with the best academics and professionals," he said.

The National Honours Colloquium will be held on 18-19 August at the Australian School of Business. The event is sponsored by the Australian School of Business, the NSW Treasury, Goldman Sachs and the Reserve Bank of Australia.
