Improving Communication and Connection
The ABDC has released a book with the aim of helping researchers, tertiary students, academics, and anyone else who wants to hone their skills, to maximise the reach and impact of their knowledge and work.
It includes practical tips, examples and candid comments from in-depth interviews with high-profile academics and journalists in Australian and international media.

About the ABDC
Welcome to the ABDC, the collective voice of Australian university business schools.
Our 39 members teach and research the areas vital to the success of the businesses that underpin Australia’s economy.
As their peak body, ABDC’s role is to ensure that those with political, social, cultural and economic influence appreciate and support how business education contributes to Australia’s future.
ABDC member business schools graduate one-third of all students, and more than half of the international students, at Australian universities.
They continuously strive to shape graduates with the technical, life and leadership skills needed to innovate, adapt and flourish in a dynamic world.
Our international business students strengthen our global relationships and improve the cross-cultural understanding needed to widen our thinking to include diverse worldviews.
The fast growth of international education – the nation’s third-largest service export – speaks to the high global standing of Australian business education.
ABDC President, Professor Keryn Chalmers, discusses the ABDC.
