Eduniversal World Convention
28 November 2016 to 01 December 2016
Curtin Business School
The four-day event, punctuated by conferences, debates, round tables, informal meetings and cultural activities, will be held at Perth’s Curtin Business School. In one of the conferences, to be moderated by Kelly Ralston, General Manager, International Education, Austrade and Phil Honeywood, CEO, IEAA (International Education Association of Australia), the spotlight will be shone on the Australian National Strategy for International Education 2025, released by the government in April 2016. Covering the key issues of Australia’s ambition to realise the full potential of international education as a core element of its economy and society, the presentation will focus on how new products and new opportunities for expansion can be lessons for other countries.
Pro Vice-Chancellor Tony Travaglione of Curtin Business School said: “The Eduniversal World Convention is a unique opportunity for Australian business schools to network among our international peers and gain extensive knowledge and insight from other business schools in Europe, North America, Latin America and Asia. The Eduniversal World Convention will facilitate networking opportunities with the aim of building new relationships so we can solidify Australia’s reputation for excellence in the education sector.”
International business school rankings 2016
One of the purposes of the convention is to announce the 2016 Eduniversal Business School Rankings, which includes institutions from 154 countries.
Cecile Escape, Managing Director of Eduniversal, said: “We are delighted to be able to reveal Eduniversal’s latest business school rankings at our ninth annual convention in Perth, home to some of Australia’s leading universities. We want this convention to highlight Australia’s importance as a destination for overseas students and I hope the new ranking will reflect that. The presence at the convention of such prestigious institutions as the University of Sydney Business School will also help us to reinforce this reputation.”
