Classroom meets boardroom

Bond Business School breaks down the barriers between the classroom and the boardroom by collaborating with local and international organisations. Our corporate connections help develop industry-relevant programs, guide our research focus, facilitate class projects, and deliver career opportunities for students. Some of our affiliates include:

Advisory boards

Further ensuring industry relevance, the Bond Business School meets regularly with dedicated industry advisory boards. By lending their support, expertise and influence, the boards seek to facilitate the achievement of our mission and objectives, and their extensive networks ensure our students are up-to-date with the industry’s latest trends.
