The UBSS difference

Our campus is part of the city that surrounds us, and we don't let the walls of the classroom close students off from learning in the world beyond. In line with the focus on graduates being 'work place ready' UBSS has embarked on a program of developing a number of initiatives in the area of workplace integrated learning (WIL) in order to enhance the experiential learning for students. The initiatives are intended to broaden student understanding of business and accounting theory through practical work based applications. Some of these initiatives include the extensive use of case studies; the introduction of online business simulation competitions; and class presentations of real business cases by executives of prominent Sydney based companies.
