The Ties That Bind

Real world experience: it’s the only thing that truly enables the application of knowledge and the demonstration of potential.

No surprise, then, that our links with leading organisations from the government, private, public, NGO and SME sectors remain such a vital part of our overall educational agenda. These associations enable our Masters of Management students to access these groups to work on actual business projects, thus creating something of a win-win situation. While students gain invaluable experience and workplace visibility, partner organisations reap the benefits of having some of their challenging issues worked on, or in some cases, completely solved.

When it comes to our list of partner organisations, I think you’d be hard-pressed to find better. For instance, we’ve just concluded projects with Lend Lease, Nielsen and The Smith Family, and have just commended an involvement with the CSIRO. Throughout 2012 we’ll also be continuing our work with principal partners Deloitte while also welcoming newcomers QBE. We’re also hopeful of linking up with the NSW Department of Treasury, and look set to continue our involvement with NGO Life Without Barriers.

For additional benefits of our partnerships, look no further than the graduate recruitment aspect. For organisations and companies, it provides an opportunity to promote their brand as an employer of choice. For students, it’s a chance to not only meet some of the decision-makers from these organisations, but to also assess whether they’re places they may want to work.

Further to this recruitment aspect, on April 18 I’ll be hosting a campus panel discussion featuring representatives from some of our key business partners. At the conclusion of the discussion (to be based around the challenges of doing business in uncertain times), attending students will be able to either continue a conversation with a panel member, or discuss their potential future with a graduate recruiter.
