UQ Business School students, Shadid and Shannon


Our mission at the UQ Business School is to create courageous thinkers who empower future leaders to positively transform business and society. We embrace disruption in business, create sustainable global solutions, and encourage efficient business outcomes.


Philanthropy plays a critical role in this, providing scholarships to financially disadvantaged or academically gifted students; funding research that has the potential to have truly global impact; and supporting world-class teachers and academics to guarantee quality student experiences and graduate success.

A $5,000p.a. undergraduate scholarship can make the world of difference to a student balancing their education, work, and living away from home for the first time, allowing them to truly focus on their university experience.

Similarly, a $5,000p.a postgraduate or Higher Degree by Research scholarship assists Australia’s best and brightest researchers, who are involved in pathways to decarbonisation, sustainable transport practices, the importance of cybersecurity in the digital age, and more.

This scholarship alleviated some of the financial pressure for me during an already challenging year. As a result, I’ve been able to focus more on my studies and the most important aspect of university – learning.”

– Josephine Hong, Bachelor of Business Management/Bachelor of Commerce (Class of 2020)
