NSW Premier Mike Baird Destination City Brain drain

Sydney Business Connect

The University of Sydney Business School Magazine

Sydney Business Connect celebrates the Business School community – our alumni, students and staff, as well as industry, government and community partners who discover new ways of doing things, conceptualise problems differently, innovate and challenge the status quo.

Our October edition centres on the notion of journeys, both physical and metaphorical. Feature articles include NSW Premier Mike Baird and a lesson on leadership; as well as a look in to the links between urban design and public transport planning.

We explore the evolution of organisational neuroscience; the implications of digital disruption on traditional business models; nurturing ties between business and education; conscious capitalism; ‘making an indelible mark’ - creating opportunities for vulnerable children in developing countries; and much more.

The issue also reveals a sneak peak into our new HQ. In 2016, we will be opening the doors to the Business School’s state-of-the-art hub on Abercrombie Street. We invite you to take a look inside.
