2010 MBA Yearbook - UQ Business School - University of Queensland

Welcome from the Dean and

Head of School, Professor Iain

Watson

I am delighted to present UQ Business School’s 2010 MBA

Yearbook, featuring this year’s exceptional and diverse

graduating MBA students.

2010 has been a tremendous year for UQ Business School’s

MBA program. Reflecting the School’s ongoing commitment to

creating an outstanding learning environment for students, we

were recently ranked 81 overall in the world, number 1 for work

experience and number 4 for student quality by The Economist.

UQ Business School in 2009 also ranked in the top 50

worldwide for the percentage of graduates employed three

months post graduation as well as ranking 56 for student

rating of careers services.

As an alumnus, industry partner, participant or friend of UQ

Business School, we trust this book serves as a tangible

reminder of the calibre and aptitude of UQ Business School’s

MBA graduates. We commend their collective achievements

and are especially delighted to demonstrate the diversity of our

graduates’ personal, professional and cultural backgrounds.

Learning from their peers as well as our highly qualified

teaching staff, our students benefit from the MBA program’s

explicit focus on leadership development and the purposeful

networking opportunities provided by the unique Leadership

Enhancement Program.

They also benefit from UQ Business School’s focus on

developing and delivering relevant new knowledge alongside

the proven fundamentals of management education.

Our experts discover new knowledge through their research,

test it in the high pressure world of business consulting

(through our in-house consulting arm, UQ Business School

Commercial), and deliver it to our constituencies – from

students to corporate partners.

As a result, our graduates leave us with highly developed

leadership skills, an excellent understanding of contemporary

business practice, and – thanks to their exposure to the latest

research – a confident readiness for whatever the future may

hold. The Yearbook is your key to accessing this pool of talent.

Right: Professor Iain Watson

To our graduating MBA class of 2010, I extend my warmest

congratulations on this milestone occasion. We are delighted

to present you with a Yearbook that commemorates your time

at UQ Business School. As graduates, you are UQ alumni and

eligible to join the School’s Alumni Association. I encourage

you to take full advantage of our networks and ongoing

development activities.

I would also like to thank Siemens for their sponsorship of the

Yearbook and their ongoing partnership with UQ.

Enjoy our 2010 MBA Yearbook and thank you once again for

your support and I look forward to your continued involvement

with UQ Business School.

Professor Iain Watson
