Three Minute Thesis Competition

The 3MT Competition supports the development of research students’ capacity to communicate ideas effectively to a range of non-specialist audiences and to the wider community.

The UNSW Business School runs a 3MT Competition Heat every year where the top three students from the Business School heat go on to compete in the UNSW 3MT Interfaculty Final, hosted by the Graduate Research School. The winner of the UNSW 3MT Interfaculty Final then presents at the Australia and New Zealand Three Minute Thesis Competition on behalf of UNSW, with over 30 other Universities from Australia and New Zealand.

In 2012, the Business Schools Marketing entrant Sumaiya Ahmed won the Interfaculty Final Competition; to view Sumaiya’s presentation go to UNSWTV.
