About business education at the University of Tasmania

Help shape business education

Can you help us shape the future of business education? We’re always after:

  • Guest speakers for workshops or masterclasses
  • Stories from Tasmanian organisations to showcase in workshops
  • Student site visits to your organisation
  • Corporate intern placements

If you can help, get in touch at or contact the relevant study area lead directly.
