The University of Western Australia (UWA), founded in 1911, is a member of Australia's leading research-intensive Group of Eight universities and one of the oldest universities in Australia.
UWA ranks 88th in the world in the highly respected Shanghai-Jiao Tong University's Academic Ranking of World Universities and 89th in the QS Rankings. Further, the Good Universities Guide 2015 awarded UWA five-star ratings in four categories - student demand, graduate starting salaries, research intensity and research grants.
We are the only business school in Western Australia – and one of seven institutions in Australia – to be internationally accredited through EQUIS, the European Quality Improvement System, and AACSB, the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. These accreditations recognise the high standards of the School’s mission, operations, faculty qualifications and contributions, courses, research, community outreach and other critical areas.
Our corporate partners include ATCO Australia, BHP Billiton, Ernst & Young, Macquarie Group, Mitsubishi Development, Wesfarmers and Woodside, among other global companies. These organisations support the UWA Business School's students and ensure teaching prepares graduates for practical, contemporary careers in business.
The School is guided by a Business School Board that includes some of the School’s most successful alumni, along with prominent members of the business community. The Board provides advice on the Business School’s strategic direction, promotes the Business School, and assists in attracting resources and high profile staff to the School.
The School’s Ambassadorial Council, with chapters in Western Australia, Singapore, the United Kingdom and North America, helps the School forge stronger global links and acts as a focal point for alumni.
We house the Centre for Social Impact (UWA), which has sister centres at three other leading Australian universities and conducts teaching, research and community outreach activities in the areas of social impact and investment.
