The Australian School of Business has an enviable reputation as one of Australia's leading business research institutions. Its success in the latest round of Australian Research Council (ARC) grants adds to this reputation.​

The Australian School of Business was awarded $1.33 million in the current round of funding. This was made up of six Discovery grants with a total value of $972,000 million and a Discovery Early Career Researcher Award (DECRA) grant of $361,952.

Professor Alec Cameron, Dean of the Australian School of Business at the University of New South Wales said "the result of this round represent an excellent performance. It reinforces the impact and reputation of the Australian School of Business, because ARC funding is highly competitive, and considerable work goes into each application to ensure that the research is relevant, and internationally significant."

"At the Australian School of Business several of our schools have been successful in the latest round of grants, including Accounting, Marketing, Economics (two Discovery grants), and Management (with two Discovery and one DECRA grant).
