Dean's Welcome

Morris Altman

On behalf of the Newcastle Business School community, I am very pleased to extend an invitation to students and partners to engage with us in research and learning.

The Newcastle Business School is the University of Newcastle's centre for undergraduate, postgraduate and community business education. We focus on student-centred, research-driven teaching to develop the skills and attributes needed to sustain a successful career that is based on life-long learning.


The Newcastle Business School offers unique opportunities to become a skilled professional and enlightened citizen by encountering new ideas, establishing new networks, and identifying future opportunities. I encourage students to take advantage of our Work Ready opportunities and overseas experiences. Our academic and professional staff with support these endeavours.

The development of knowledge and skills begins as soon as students join the Newcastle Business School. We host an orientation program to introduce University life and acquaint students with academic standards. The University provides student mentors and academic skills support to help students reach their potential.


As well as their discipline-based content and professional expertise, our academics emphasise communication, independent study skills, awareness of cultural differences, and activities to foster powers of analysis and creativity. Overall our courses aim to cultivate employability skills, which also include teamwork, problem solving, ethical decision- making, planning and organising, and effective use of technology.

I take great pride in welcoming our students and partners to engage with us through learning.
