Get the industry research data you need from a university you can trust

Actively partnering with industry and government keeps our research and curriculum relevant and offers optimal value to you with thought leadership and visionary analysis. You can be sure that our researchers are well funded and supported, and that they have the flexibility to be truly innovative in their approach.

To make sound business decisions and to confidently set policy direction, you need quality industry research. But that means more than just data availability. In today's information-rich world, the data may very well be out there already. That's actually part of the problem: There's too much data available. Finding it all and then analysing it is time-consuming and requires specialist research expertise.

With the capacity to facilitate cross-disciplinary research, you will benefit from accessing in-depth research data, analysis and interpretation across a range of domains, from financial risk, ethics and governance to applied finance, health economics, management and marketing. Our appetite to engage and exchange knowledge as well as apply research findings is why we are recognised as a leading industry research organisation, with highly respected programs.

That's where we can help. We can provide you with unbiased industry research data, analysis and interpretation.
