About us

Welcome from the Associate Dean (Research), James Morley.

James Morley
I believe a business school should be like "an engineering school for the social sciences". The research and research training at the UNSW Business School closely reflect this analogy. In particular, we are producing high impact research that is both rigorous and relevant and we are placing our PhD students at leading universities and in important government and industry positions.

As part of our Strategy 2020 focus on high impact research, we have identified four world-leading strengths and four emerging strengths for our research in business and economics:

Beyond these specific areas of strength, our academic researchers also have considerable expertise in many other fields, including behavioural management accounting, corporate finance, organisational behaviour, human resource management processes, marketing science, taxation administration, and macroeconomics.

We are closely engaged with government and industry and have been awarded the largest number of ARC Linkage grants within Business disciplines in Australia over the past five years. Our partners on these grants include CorVal Partners Limited, Netspar, AMP, Booz and Company, APG, GE Capital Finance Australasia Pty Ltd, Institute of Chartered Accountants in Australia, and CPA Australia.

Last but not least, our research students receive world-class training from our academics and have gone on to work in academia, government, and industry. Some notable recent placements of PhD students to academic positions include the University of Melbourne, Monash University, University of Queensland, University of Sydney, Australian National University, Otago University, Durham University, Maastricht University, Chinese University of Hong Kong, and Sun Yat-sen University. Placements of PhD students in industry and government positions include Commerzbank AG, Kaggle, HSBC, Ernst & Young, Commonwealth Bank, AMP, and the Reserve Bank of Australia.
