The University of Sydney Business School is regarded as a leader in the region, and is one of the very few Australian schools to hold business and accounting accreditation from AACSB International and EQUIS accreditation from the European Foundation for Management Development. It is also the only Australian member school of CEMS, the Community of European Management Schools & International Companies.

It is situated in a new $180m state-of-the-art learning environment which, in the highly competitive global market for business education, will further enhance its ability to attract the best and brightest students, staff and researchers from around the world.

Founded in 2002, in direct response to requests from the local business community, the Discipline of Business Information Systems forms a regional hub that is internationally recognised for its innovative business education, industry engagement, and high-impact research. We share a passion for genuine collaboration with the business community through qualitative, interpretive, often non-orthodox approaches to investigating a wide range of phenomena of organising in an increasingly digital world. Our areas of interest include business intelligence, risk management, enterprise systems, digital platforms, social media, project management, design and innovation, interoperability, and sustainability.

The role reports to the Chair of Discipline.
