Pro Vice-Chancellor’s office

Professor Nigel de Bussy

On behalf of all the staff, I warmly welcome you to Curtin Business School (CBS). We are committed to providing the most innovative teaching and research environment for the business leaders of tomorrow.

We are located in the beautiful city of Perth, Western Australia, with our main campus in Bentley and the Curtin Graduate School of Business conveniently located in the bustling CBD. Along with many offshore partnerships, we also have campuses in Sydney, Singapore and Malaysia.

Innovation in business and legal education

We pride ourselves on maintaining high standards of teaching and on being future focused in our approach to education. Many of our staff have been recognised with the Australian Office of Learning and Teaching Awards for teaching excellence and outstanding contributions to student learning.

CBS is known for practical, industry-engaged teaching and it is now applying those valuable attributes to an early career MBA. The MBA (Global) has a strong focus on work-integrated learning and providing students with the international perspective that is becoming increasingly important in our global marketplace. The MBA (Global) is distinct from our existing and highly respected executive MBA offered by the Graduate School of Business. CBS also has the recent addition of the Curtin Law School, designed to produce job-ready law graduates who can make tomorrow better.

Industry engagement

Building and maintaining strong industry partnerships is another priority for CBS, as evidenced by the applied nature of our courses and the industry networking opportunities we offer our students. We have the ongoing input of over 70 industry leaders helping to shape our business education offerings, through our Advisory Boards and Council Network, and our Adjunct Professor network. These are people in the real world of business, who tell us what kind of leaders they need to succeed.  As a result of their influence, our courses are widely recognised in the workplace as being outstanding and relevant.

International reach

Apart from the strength of our courses, Curtin Business students benefit from being a part of a well-recognised and international alumnus of over 70,000 people. Our graduates are spread across the globe in more than 100 different countries and we firmly believe that this diversity amongst our students enriches their university experience, helps them to see different perspectives and broadens their horizons. We are also global in the physical sense, with offshore campuses in Singapore and Malaysia, and offshore programs available in China, Indonesia, Mauritius, and Hong Kong.

I strongly believe the quality of our students and staff, teamed with the great reputation of CBS, forms a solid foundation to take Curtin Business School to the next level within the region and indeed to all corners of the globe.
