Inspired by Business (IBB)

Inspired by Business (IBB) scholarships will be offered to the best Commerce or Commerce/Advanced Studies E12 applications (as determined by the University). In 2016, the University of Sydney Business School tripled the number of IBB scholarships that will be offered.

For those selected students who eventually meet the requirements of their conditional IBB offer, their E12 scholarship will be increased to $10,000 per year, for the duration of their degree, in addition to a first year, $5,000 E12 scholarship:

  • $30,000 for a Bachelor of Commerce or
  • $40,000 for a Bachelor of Commerce/Bachelor of Advanced Studies


All E12 Commerce and Commerce/Advanced Studies applications will be considered for IBB in the same way as for E12, so put your best foot forward and you may find yourself getting not only an E12 offer, but getting an additional IBB offer!
