UNSW Business School launches new digital gateway


UNSW Business School has launched an expanded BusinessThink platform to communicate research collaboration, give easier access to its experts and form deep connections with industry.Universities are finding fresh and innovative ways to better connect with the broader community and the new BusinessThink aims to serve people in business, in government, and within a wide range of organisations.Professor Ian Jacobs, President and Vice Chancellor of UNSW Sydney, says BusinessThink will strive to emphasise collaborative research opportunities and partnerships with the Business School.“Many of our leading researchers are at the cutting-edge of applying research findings, but too often, the word researcher conjures up just an image of a scientist in a lab coat holding a test tube, engaged in basic discovery work,” Jacobs says.UNSW Business School prides itself on industry links, with a Business Advisory Council of more than 50 CEOs from prominent Australian companies, and newly appointed ‘professors of practice’ invited from industry to work alongside academic staff in the Business School.“Our research makes a difference to the business world because of these deep connections,” says Professor Chris Styles, Dean of UNSW Business School.“UNSW has received more linkage grants for business than any other Australian university – for joint research with an industry partner,” he adds.Professors from the Business School have performed collaborative research resulting in a more accurate measure of the consumer price index and savings for taxpayers; they have been integral in improving and designing auditing standards; and are doing breakthrough work that is informing ageing, retirement and superannuation policy.Alistair Jones, Managing Editor of BusinessThink, says “our content is inspired by the inventive research and accumulated expertise of UNSW Business School academics. With scholars at the front line of applied research findings, we have a window into the real-world applications of their knowledge.”“We also draw on the experience of business leaders, industry partners and co-authors at other research institutions across the world,” he adds.
