UNE Business School News
Welcome all to the new-look UNE Business School News!

We're currently working to bring a monthly news update from UNE Business School online, so it is easier to find, easier to navigate and quicker to see the highlights of our month.
We've got some great news to share for May and June this year, including the recent delivery of results from last year's Armidale Business Skills Survey, setting us up with local business community members to continue work on development and support of our community.

UNE Business School is also very excited to invite you to the launch of the Centre for Agribusiness, happening on 28 July at 5:30pm at the White Bull Hotel - be sure to RSVP to this event. The Centre will play a key role in the collaboration of UNE's research centres, building partnerships between key industry stakeholders, our academic staff, our students and the wider agribusiness community.

The School has been busy in May and June - have a look at our Events calendar to get a taste for the work we're doing on campus, in the business community and overseas. Speaking of which, big congratulations from our IFAMA team who recently competed in Aarhus, Denmark at the IFAMA Case Study Competition as the only Australian competitor. Student Sarah Rohr's recap of the event speaks to great team work, preparation and an excellent representation of the talent of which UNE Business School is proud. We look forward to hearing what comes next for these great students.

While our email format pulls certain stories to the forefront, don't forget to take a look at the UNE Business School blog which is updated daily with our latest news. Be sure to share this news with your networks as we move online to continue our conversation with each other and with global networks.
