Boards & sponsors

Victoria Business School is grateful for the committees, boards and sponsors who contribute to the quality of our research and the student experience we offer.

Victoria Business School Advisory Board

Victoria Business School is honoured to have an Advisory Board of highly accomplished individuals who share their wisdom with the Business School, through the Pro Vice-Chancellor and Dean of Commerce.

The Advisory Board facilitates greater engagement between the University and external stakeholders within both the public and private sector, and our capital city location provides a spectacular source of talented people, all leaders in their respective fields, who are willing to assist the Business School in its quest for continuous improvement.

Our Board members represent many spheres of activity including the commercial, government and not-for-profit sectors, as well as a balance between local, national and international perspectives.

Meetings are held twice a year and generally focus on important issues facing Victoria Business School. The Dean also consults with members individually as appropriate.

School advisory boards

Each school within the Faculty has an Advisory Board that meets regularly to provide advice and guidance. Within the schools there are a number of research centres and externally-funded Chairs that also have the support of individual Advisory Boards.

Internal committees

Victoria Business School has input and assistance from a number of committees, including the Faculty Management team, Faculty Board committee (which includes elected student members), Research and Leave committees, and the Equity Advisory committee.
