Professor Robin Stonecash

Welcome to the School of Business and Tourism. We provide excellence in business, tourism, hospitality, and information technology education as well as research and service activities to the Asia-Pacific.

We instil our students with the critical knowledge and fundamental workplace skills required to succeed in the global business, tourism, hospitality and information technology industries. We conduct frequent reviews of our undergraduate and postgraduate courses, focusing on the changing demands of industry to ensure graduates have the knowledge and skills needed to succeed in today's organisations.

Our graduates are of the highest quality and fill professional roles in Australia and around the globe. Our strong links with industry form a fundamental part of our internship programs, giving our students experience in real jobs before they graduate, ensuring they are career-ready.

We operate The Hotel School Sydney and The Hotel School Melbourne in partnership with Mulpha Australia. In collaboration with international educational collaborations, several of our courses are taught in China, Singapore and Papua New Guinea.

We believe that advanced teaching and learning must be informed by research and innovation. Our research-active academics are widely published and the School has also established an extensive international network that supports its teaching and research activities. 

I wish you all the very best in your studies and trust that your experience as a student in our School will be a rewarding one.
