The Australian
Business Case Network

As the nexus between academia and industry, the Australian Business Case Network is focused on enhancing student experiences and ensuring graduates leave the classroom with a broad set of work-ready skills

“...A lack of engagement with real-world problems by business graduates.”

What is the abcn?

Enhancing the student experience through a hands-on learning approach. The ABCN is a network of expert business academics and leading industry executives to produce the next generation of leading business professionals. Students can often lose the relevance of class material when they’re not applying these same content areas to everyday decision-making, resulting in a lack of real-world application and a missed opportunity to gain vital learns in personal and professional judgement, problem solving, and communication with others. Without applying course content to real-world scenarios, when students enter the workforce, they simply don’t have the skills, knowledge and experience to solve business problems. The ABCN addresses this by empowering students to apply the course material in a way that is enjoyable, engaging and memorable to equip them with the skills to solve real world business problems on their own. That’s what the case method forces students to do. 

The Australian Business Case Network is the driving force behind the case learning method in Australia, and is working to help produce the country’s next generation of leading business professionals.
