Welcome to Business, Economics and Law

A quick word from the Executive Dean

Andrew Griffiths

Congratulations on being accepted into one of the top 50 universities in the world.

Whether you are enrolled in business, economics or law, I am confident your experience here will open your mind to ideas and possibilities that will excite and inspire you.

Your goal, and ours, is to ensure you leave us with a world-class qualification that equips you to achieve your dreams and create change on a local, national or global scale.

Your first few weeks here will be fun, exciting, engaging and, perhaps at times, overwhelming. I recommend taking some time to familiarise yourself with the services and opportunities available to you. 

We look forward to meeting you soon.

Professor Andrew Griffiths
Executive Dean
The Faculty of Business, Economics and Law
