Macquarie Business School

The Macquarie Business School consists of six academic departments and the school's four associated research centres.

The school uses insightful knowledge, innovative research, visionary analysis and thought leadership through briefings, publications and events to make a positive impact on our students and the community.


We are an applied and engaged business faculty making a positive global contribution and impact. We engage with our stakeholders as we create and share knowledge that addresses business and societal challenges.


As custodians of Macquarie University, we value scholarship, integrity and empowerment. We believe learning, enquiry and discovery improves lives; we conduct ourselves ethically, equitably, and for mutual benefit; and we work to make our community a source of strength and creativity.

Through our actions with our academic and corporate partners, students and alumni, our faculty creates and share research that addresses business and societal challenges. We educate future leaders and take pride in our integrated curriculum which develops robust skill sets and attracts higher degree students engaging in high-quality research.
