Research at the Business School
The University of Sydney Business School has an outstanding reputation for the quality of its research across a wide range of academic disciplines. The School enjoys considerable national and international research standing and is recognised as one of the leading schools of its kind in Australia and the Asian region. We produce research that informs business practice, policy and regulation both nationally and internationally and which leads to School staff being regarded as public intellectuals in Australia and the global arena. Our goal is to continue to build on this reputation as a world-class centre of excellence for business research.
We believe that an interdisciplinary approach to research leads to work that is of greater intellectual depth and broader industry relevance. We place a high value on national and international collaborative research and development through partnerships with business, industry, government, NGOs, international agencies and other universities, both in Australia and overseas.
Our success in attracting competitive research funding has resulted in more than $35 million over the past 10 years (2001-2011). During this time, Business School staff have also published almost 3,200 HERDC-audited publications. The postgraduate research programs offered by the Business School attract a large number of domestic and international students each year. With more than 175 doctoral candidates currently enrolled, the Business School has one of the largest and most diverse higher degree by research programs in Australia and the Asia-Pacific region.
