Rethink, reimagine and rewrite the rules of business

Our progressive approach to education and research seeks to develop future leaders who are passionate, ethical, creative and resilient.

Macquarie Business School is the focal point for all business, management, economics research and education at Macquarie University.

It represents over 50 years of history producing some of the business world's finest graduates, through what was once called the Macquarie Graduate School of Management (MGSM) and Macquarie Applied Finance Centre (MAFC). What remains distinctive about a Macquarie education is that it is real-world, practical, and focused on building character and content alike.
