The Newcastle Business School strives to find solutions so business and society can work together to create sustainable enterprises and communities in the areas of: Management, Marketing, Human Resource Management and Accounting, Finance and Economics.
The Newcastle Business School welcomes a wide array of national and internationally renowned scholars to work with our world class academics.
The Faculty supports a number of cross disciplinary specialist research groups. These groups draw researchers together from across the University, the Hunter region as well as collaborators in Australian and overseas universities.
The Higher Education Participation and Partnerships Program (HEPPP) aims to ensure that Australians from low SES backgrounds who have the ability to study at university have the opportunity to do so. It provides funding to assist universities listed in Table A of the Higher Education Support Act 2003 to undertake activities and implement strategies that improve access to undergraduate courses for people from low SES backgrounds, as well as improving the retention and completion rates of those students.
