The University of Sydney Business School believes study is a natural fit with elite sporting pursuits. We have committed to a number of sponsorship agreements with local and state sporting clubs, with the aims of furthering our key goal of student and community engagement, supporting elite athletes undertaking university education and contributing to the effective management of sporting organisations through quality education.
The Business School has a long association with the Sydney University Football Club, which continues to thrive and carries on a proud traditional connection through the current sponsorship arrangement.
The Business School recognises that there is a clear and demonstrable link between high-level academic study and elite sporting activity, as evidenced by the number of Business School students and alumni that have made their mark on the Rugby field.
The Business School is also an active partner in the University's elite sports program, offering highly flexible study options to committed athletes, including a number of senior representative rugby players who are currently completing postgraduate degree programs at the Business School.
The University of Sydney Business School offers, in conjunction with Sydney Uni Sport & Fitness, Scholarships for Outstanding Academic and Sporting Achievement.
The scholarships range in value up to $10,000 and are awarded each year to talented athletes based on academic merit, who are already competing at state and/or national levels and will be undertaking a degree with the University of Sydney Business School.
For more information about the elite sports program or a scholarship at the University of Sydney Business School please contact Leonie Lum, Athlete Programs Manager, Lisa Mauritz, Scholarship Co-ordinator or visit the scholarships web page.
