Advisory boards




Strong external relationships enable the UniSA Business School to receive current advice in order to maintain and improve the quality of its programs, research, professional practice and service to the community. Senior representatives from the relevant professions, industry bodies, community and government organisations and from research agencies form the Business School Advisory Board.

The Advisory Board provides high level advice to the Pro Vice Chancellor on economic trends, developing industries and career opportunities, industry and government research, the development of the Business School as an entity, and its management as an organisation. This valuable input is further augmented by the contribution of the various advisory groups and committees established in the Business Research Institutes, Research Centres and Schools.

The UniSA Business School is extremely proud of the calibre of its Advisory Board membership, which is testament to the quality of our contribution to South Australia and beyond, as well as our global profile and the strength of our relationships with industry and government.
