Positively Impacting the Broader Community
Adelaide Business School is committed to engaging and positively impacting the broader community.
We aim to engage and impact the local, national and international community through our research, programs and industry links. We form meaningful ties with academic institutions, local businesses, and community organisations.
We have a number of double-degree options with international universities, we invite local businesses to attend academic and business events, and our research has far-reaching impact. The University also offers volunteering opportunities for students and staff, and we have a comprehensive corporate and social responsibility strategy.
