Creating a forward-focused, future-ready business school

A new phase of development is underway at Griffith Business School to ensure we continue to be regarded as a leading provider of business education and scholarship in Australia and the Asia region.

Consideration of current and future challenges for business schools, universities and the wider community has been important in the development of our strategy. There are four areas of strategic priority that demonstrate our move to address this disruption, and when actioned will create a forward-focused, future-ready business school.

Delivering on our priorities will enable us to equip our students, staff, alumni and partners with the skills, knowledge and attributes to manage the challenges, and leverage the opportunities, that will prevail in 2020 and beyond.

Our vision

Advancing innovative and socially responsible business education, scholarship and practice in Australia and the Asia region.

Our mission

To deliver outstanding business education and research through engagement with industry, government and the social communities we serve, and to do so in ways that contribute to a prosperous, equitable and sustainable future.

Our strategic priorities

Delivering a remarkable student learning experience

To prepare our students for the future world of work, we will continue to offer business degrees that are innovative, with a focus on employability, taught using the latest technology. We will provide an educational experience that delivers graduates who are equipped with cutting-edge business knowledge and skills, and are globally connected, socially responsible, creative thinkers able to critically analyse problems and identify solutions

High impact research

Our research will demonstrate the highest standards of academic rigour and independence, whilst delivering social and economic benefit to business, government and the wider community. We will continue to develop a culture of strong performance and promote our research achievements and impact to a broad cross-section of external audiences.

Enhancing our engagement

Strong relationships with our partners in business, government and social communities is key to our success. We will continue to build on our existing relationships and develop new strategic partnerships at the local, national and international level. With a long history of engagement with Asia we are uniquely equipped to enhance our strong ties in this dynamic economic region.

Strengthening our staff

Our people underpin all that we do. Strategically recruiting, retaining and developing high-performing staff will enable us to form a forward-thinking, transformational and inspiring community. Fostering a mindset that celebrates agility and diversity will increase our ability to deliver innovative learning experiences, high-impact research and enhanced engagement.
