The School offers a comprehensive range of undergraduate and postgraduate coursework, executive education, and research degrees designed to give students relevant theory, practical work experience and critical employability skills.

The School of Business and Law ranks well across several respected indicators. In 2024, the School’s Business and Economics discipline was ranked in the Top 250 on the Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings. In the 2023 Shanghai Rankings, the School’s Hospitality and Tourism Management discipline is ranked 26th in the world and 3rd nationally. In the recently released 2023 Australian Financial Review BOSS Best Business Schools list, the School solidified its standing as a leader in business education, being named Western Australia’s ‘top-ranked business school for quality’ (2nd nationally).

As part of an exciting expansion plan, the School of Business and Law will move into the $853 million world-class facilities of the landmark ECU City Campus at Yagan Square in the Perth CBD in 2025. This state-of-the-art Business, Law, Creative Industries and Technology Campus will be where innovative thinkers, adaptive learners and global citizens meet to become the leaders of tomorrow.

This is unequivocally the most exciting time of all to join the University as it embarks on this transformational journey.
