Business School Topics
Building a lifelong learning relationship with our Alumni is vital to the sustainability of the Business School, and its relevance to industry. As the University strives to achieve international excellence, the Business School is also focused on fostering leadership, recognising accomplishments and providing networking opportunities among its Alumni.
UWA Business School Corporate Partner, Ernst & Young continues to recruit high numbers of our graduates and alumni. A tradition strongly supported by Managing Partner (Western Region) Jeff Dowling, who completed his Bachelor of Commerce at UWA, along with Partners Chad Dixon, Tax Advisory Services; Susan Oldmeadow-Hall, Assurance and Advisory Business Services; and Peter Magill, Transaction Advisory Services; who all fly the flag for the Business School.
Ernst & Young's corporate partnership with the Business School provides its staff with opportunities to engage with us in a number of ways. At a recent forum between our academic staff and Ernst & Young Partners, the challenges facing both the private and public sector from both an academic and commercial viewpoint were discussed. Forum attendees identified risks, agreed upon a collaborative approach, and have drawn a plan of action to address the major issues in finding the next generation of accounting professionals. This level of engagement with industry sets the UWA Business School apart in the Asia Pacific region and highlights the importance we place on our corporate partnerships and alumni engagement.
The Business School website currently lists a number of Alumni who have lost touch with their University: http://www.business.uwa.edu.au/alumni/lostgrads
Please take a moment to help put these individuals back in touch with the Business School, so they too can continue to be involved in future alumni activities.
