From our Corporate Partner
James Cook University.
For over 50 years, James Cook University has worked to protect the health of our planet, people and communities through partnership programs in research, innovation, and experiential learning.
Designed in conjunction with industry professionals, the courses offered by the College of Business, Law and Governance (CBLG) instil future leaders with life-long, practical skills which will have continued relevance through this age of disruption. Leading-edge subjects reflect global industry needs and challenges including the blue economy, sustainable practice, adaptability, crisis management, creativity and innovation.
Over the next three years CBLG will continue to strengthen its industry engagement and career focus. With multinational campuses, staff and students, the College aspires to be the Business and Law School for the Asia Pacific region and beyond.
The opportunity for our students to intern at local organisations and take part in the Mentorship Program run with the Townsville Chamber of Commerce, are just two of the local initiatives to ensure our students are equipped for and are relevant in workforce upon graduation – because experience has no substitute.
This year has seen our College also place priority on our Post Graduate Courses and in 2022 we will be launching our Graduate Certificate of Project Management and our reinvigorated Master of Business Administration (MBA). We will be offering these courses in our City campus as well as online to provide flexibility for people in the workforce to upskill and expand their potential.
We are also exploring opportunities to provide programs in other areas required by business and the professions such as Fintech, Logistics and Supply Chain Management, Leadership and Innovation and Entrepreneurship.
