The University of Sydney Business School is committed to cultivating and nurturing our connections with industry, both in Australia and overseas. We aim to increase industry engagement in research training programs by facilitating collaborative PhD scholarships between industry partners and the University of Sydney Business School. We consider these connections as strategic partnerships for industry; an important way to invest in the education of the business leaders of tomorrow.
Under a Partnered Scholarship the student will receive the same funding as other Business School HDR scholarships. If an academic secures a commitment by an industry partner to support a PhD stipend, then the School/University will meet the first 2/3 per annum for the cost of the scholarship, with the partner providing the remaining 1/3 per annum (these amounts will be based on the current Business School Research Scholarship rate). Any increase in the scholarship amount during the period of the student’s enrolment will be met by the School. Once funding is secured, the scholarship is advertised and students are invited to apply for the Partnered Scholarship via the Higher Degree by Research program at the School.
Industry Partners are able to engage in a low-risk, financially attractive option for involvement with the university research program. They develop a named scholarship which is advertised and promoted and are the beneficiary of research outputs. The University of Sydney Business School has the opportunity to build industry connections and increase the pool of scholarship money (which facilities attracting higher quality students). The Higher degree Research candidate receives an attractive scholarship package, works on a highly relevant topic (supported by both academia and industry) and develops industry connections during and after the PhD.
A University of Sydney Business School Partnered Research Scholarship is an ideal way for industry to utilise independent research to find solutions for long term challenges. This type of relationship provides the partner industries with answers that are based on solid methodology and innovative, peer reviewed, research. Candidates work under the supervision of their academic mentors and has input from senior academics throughout. Through working with an industry partner, PhD candidates are able to gain valuable industry specific experience and a network of industry contacts. Such relationships will benefit the student whether they move into the corporate world or forge an academic career.
