1. You get to study in one of the most impressive buildings on campus
The Abercrombie Building is the Business School’s new home. Both the outside and inside of the building looks really great and the best thing is all the natural light, making studying and hanging out a lot more enjoyable.
2. The opportunity to have real industry experience before you even graduate
The Industry Placement Program is an accredited unit of study that lets you work in leading companies locally and overseas, such as PwC, RB and Macquarie Group, and is offered to all Business School students. The unit itself is structured in a way that will help you gain the most out of your workplace placement. It’s a great opportunity to get a taste of what it’s like in your industry and gain experience that will definitely make you more career-ready and competitive.
3. It’s only 10 minute walk to Newtown
Café hopping and brunch before class anyone? The Business School is right next to Newtown which makes it extremely convenient when you have breaks between classes and want to take a bit of a walk. Newtown is always a very vibrant place with a lot of cool stores and nooks and crannies, as well as great food (look for under $10 lunch deals at places like Thai La-Ong!).

4. All the help and advice you can get here is endless
Since Day 1 of being at the Business School I was always presented with a wealth of resources and opportunities. The Careers and Employability Office is a great place to start when you’ve got any career related questions. You can book one-on-one consultations for advice, such as if you’re confused about what major to pick or if you need your job applications to be reviewed. They also hold a lot of useful skills workshops and provide great online resources you can easily access.
5. We work hard and play hard
You’ll never be bored here. There is never a shortage of fun events that our clubs and societies regularly hold. As a Business School student, you’re an official member of SUBS (Sydney University Business School Society), which means you get to attend exciting things such as the SUBS cruise, sporting events and end of semester ball, and even occasionally get free food. There’s also events held by other societies such as the Commerce Revue and semester drinks.
