SYDNEY - The Australian Baseball League brought to you by Be the Influence: Tackling Binge Drinking is excited to announce a partnership with The University of Queensland Business School. UQ Business School will now become the preferred University Partner of the ABL as well as the Managerial Development Institution of Choice.
UQ Business School is part of The University of Queensland, the largest and oldest university in Queensland and a founding member of the prestigious Group of Eight - a coalition of Australia's leading universities. UQ Business School is recognized by the world's top ranking bodies as a leading provider of quality business education. It is renowned for its cutting-edge research, the quality of its academic staff, the depth of its educational programs and its close links with industry.
An interesting aspect of this partnership is that both the Australian Baseball League as well as the Brisbane Bandits will now serve as work practicum placement centres for students from UQ Business School and the Faculty of Business, Economics and Law. The ABL head office (located in Sydney) will offer as many as 12 student placements per year, while the Brisbane Bandits will offer up to 20 student placements. In an attempt to gain further exposure in Asia, UQ Business School will also become an Associate Partner of the team representing the ABL at the 2014 Asia Series. This will be a great opportunity for UQ Business School to promote their School and attract a more diverse student body.
