The University of Sydney Business School actively pursues engagement with the corporate world, the professions and government.
CEMS - The Global Alliance in Management Education is a strategic alliance of leading business schools and multinational companies that together offer postgraduate students a unique blend of education and professional experience. Its first mission is to set a global standard of excellence for pre-experience Masters in management. Founded in 1988 in Europe, the network has grown steadily, largely due to the success and popularity of the CEMS Masters in International Management (CEMS MIM), which is currently ranked as the #2 pre-experience management program in the world (The Financial Times 2009 Business School Rankings).
In each country only one business school is chosen to be part of the CEMS alliance. In 2006, when CEMS decided to expand globally, they selected The University of Sydney as the Australian School to become an Associate member. In June 2008, The University of Sydney was accepted as a Full member, meaning we not only provide access to the CEMS MIM for our students, but are accredited to teach the CEMS MIM program to students from other CEMS Institutions.
The Business School is proud that Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Australia chose to join CEMS as our corporate partner.

The Business School also ensures its programs are professionally relevant and accredited through discipline-based advisory bodies which work closely with organisations such as CPA Australia, the Institute of Chartered Accountants in Australia, the Australian Computer Society, and the Australian Marketing Institute.
Corporate and government links play an important role in teaching and learning. Case studies, internships, on-the-job projects, workshops and other learning activities see direct involvement with business, industry and government. Input from practitioners is also encouraged through the appointment of adjunct professors, tutors and guest speakers drawn from the business world.
Much of our research involves collaboration with business and industry, and extensive consultancy projects are funded by and involve collaboration with business and government organisations.
The University of Sydney Business School greatly appreciates the support of many organisations through corporate-sponsored scholarships and prizes. These include the CVC Scholarship for International Entrepreneurship Research, PricewaterhouseCoopers Nathan Moss Scholarship in Business and the Citigroup Simon Taylor Scholarship. The University of Sydney Business School would also like to recognize donors for their support for awards such as the Joye Prizes, Phillip Noel Hartley Smith Distinguished Honours Scholarship, and the Wayne Lonergan Outstanding Teaching Award.
In addition, many of the events run throughout the year by the University of Sydney Business School are only made possible thanks to the generous support of organisations such the Australian Stock Exchange, CPA, KPMG, Corporate Express, Fairfax, Coca Cola Amatil, and a range of other organisations from the business, public and educational sectors.
