Welcome
A word from the Deputy Vice Chancellor

Student success at UBSS is supported by a world class team of mostly PhD specialised academics and student support staff. We are committed to students seeking to build or further their business leadership and accounting careers, based on an international education with an Australian experience, leading edge innovation and digital technology for those who want to be job ready when they graduate. 

Part of our global citizenship is a student body that reflects the multicultural make-up of both the high growth Asia Pacific region and the immediate surrounds of Sydney.  The UBSS experience brings together international education,a solid Australian business foundation with colleagues and alumni who will form the basis of your long term friendships and business contacts.

Set in the heart of Sydney’s education precinct, UBSS’ GCA Campus offers students more than world class education. It is also surrounded by a bustling, cosmopolitan, inner city dining and shopping experience, only metres from a major train station hub.  With multiple bus routes also accessing the campus, students are assured of safe and reliable transport options.

We look forward to welcoming you and supporting your career success. 

Emeritus Professor Greg Whateley,
Deputy Vice Chancellor
