Enriching student experiences with industry engagement

We're helping industry and business engage with our students and academics to enhance the student journey and strengthen our industry connections to our teaching and research.

Building relationships within the business community is the key to providing our students with the knowledge and skills that employers are looking for now and into the future.

It's also an opportunity for business to build upon your own skills and profile by engaging closely with our students and academics, through the exchange of knowledge and increasing awareness of your brand.

Our corporate engagement team can help you connect with us in the following ways:

Guest speaking and lecturing at Macquarie University can create opportunities for yourself and your industry.

You can be influential in your area of expertise, by sharing your knowledge and workplace experience — a highly valuable insight for students who are looking for real-life context from experts in their field.

It's a chance to further develop your speaking skills and increase your expert status in your field, and an opportunity to connect with some of the brightest student and academic minds.

Our team will connect you with the relevant academics who can assist you in preparing your key points and outline for the event.

Macquarie University holds regular public talks and events to promote community and industry engagement.

We welcome your case studies in narrative form for our students to interpret and discuss.

Providing our students with real-life case studies can:

  • help bridge the gap between theoretical and problem-based learning
  • serve as a launching pad for class discussion
  • give students a practical opportunity to apply their skills and understanding of learned facts to a complex real-world situation.

A single real-life case study may be presented to several groups, with each group offering its solutions, which we can share with you.

To learn more about submitting a case study, contact our corporate engagement team on +61 (2) 9850 1323 or ce@qqxo.net.

We encourage our external partners to provide us with feedback and advice on our curriculum.

Our curriculum advisory boards invite you to provide recommendations on the relevance of planned and ongoing courses to our prospective students.

We value knowing what skills, knowledge and attributes employers are seeking for in our graduates.

Our external advisory boards can also explore potential opportunities for creating new in-demand courses.
