A word from the Executive Dean and Provost

"May I extend a very warm welcome to new students and new staff at UBSS. A very special welcome also to our returning students and staff as well.  UBSS is a quality school based in the Sydney CBD. It has to its credit a number of significant achievements including the best performing Sydney CBD based school for learner engagement as evidenced in the 2016 QILT survey. The feedback we receive through various channels suggest our teaching is first class and students are well engaged. 

Our current strategic plan is built on the five pillars of growth, diversity, quality, entrepreneurship and performance. We are proud to say that we deliver against all five domains. Students who join us at UBSS need to be committed to excellence and achievement. Our commitment, in turn, is quality and support. Together, we can impact on the future."
