The Inspired by Business Program recognises and supports talented high school students who have an interest in studying business. As an undergraduate student in the Business School, you can become a peer mentor and help these students settle in to university.
The program works with schools identified in low-socio economic communities to identify students who have an interest in studying business but who may not have thought about studying at the University of Sydney.
