Enabling high school students to experience University first hand

Griffith Business School offers a range of school programs across our Gold Coast, Logan and Nathan campuses that enable high school students to experience University first hand and expand their knowledge of the business world.

Educators can also take advantage of professional development and networking opportunities provided by the School.

GriffithBUSINESS School Outreach Program

Over the past five years, the GriffithBUSINESS School Outreach Program has provided encouragement and transitional support to thousands of secondary school students.

The program for 2018 focuses on social innovation and social enterprise, exploring the potential for citizens and communities to engage in local problem solving. Our goal, along with providing high school students with a deeper business knowledge and stronger understanding of the tertiary environment, is to encourage and support them as vibrant, connected and resilient community members.
