Global Image

Innovation. Global Networks. International Impact.

Enterprises innovate and grow, and in our region that often is the result of the fusion between new ideas and the opportunities to pursue global markets.

Through our Innovation Collaboration Centre and the Australian Centre for Business Growth, we have unparalleled expertise in innovation and business growth, coupled with global business expertise.

Asia is our region. With trade, education and immigration, our economy has become inextricably linked to Asia. It’s a complex relationship that is of tremendous international importance.

The Australian Centre for Asian Business draws from across the UniSA Business School to research business, management and trade issues that arise between the vastly different cultures. If you have worked in international trade, you will understand the legal, financial and cultural complexities that arise.

The King Sejong Institute (KSI) is a hub for Korean culture, business and language education in Adelaide – one of only nine in the world to be awarded and the only one in Australia. The Institute strengthens our research links and student exchange relationship with Korea, and highlights a local focus on the language and culture of what is one of the most innovative economies in the world today.
