At UBSS, we continue to look for ways to build on our high level of education to further support the success of our entrepreneurial students. One of the ways we do this is through forming industry partnerships and building extensive corporate networks. At UBSS, we believe in the importance of partnering with recognised organisations and iconic brands from all industries. Through these strategic partnerships, we can further improve our education programs for our students by bridging the gap between theory and practice, allowing them to gain real-world experience and observe case studies that augment their comprehension.
UBSS’ partnerships also pave the way for industry leaders and influential business experts to guest lecture in our classrooms and provide invaluable insights to our students across all subjects, such as entrepreneurship, management and marketing. Furthermore, our technology partnerships, such as those with CampusQ, Impulse Analytics and Qlik, ensure that UBSS stays on top of the latest innovations in education technology and data analytics, providing our school with ongoing solutions which enhance the overall student experience and continually drive operational efficiencies. These partnerships have also ensured that UBSS has maintained a competitive edge during COVID-19 and the sudden transition to online education.
At UBSS, the experience gained by our students through these partnerships goes a long way to contributing to their success as they graduate and enter the business world.
