We are grateful for the generous gift from alumnus Matt McLennan which largely funded the establishment of AIBE.

When making the donation, Mr McLennan said one of the most important investments anyone could make in their lifetime was to provide opportunity for the next generation to learn and succeed:

“I have made this gift in the hope that it will inspire others to give. UQ increasingly competes on a global stage. To achieve the highest level of scholarly research and coordination of efforts among academic scholars and industry requires significant funding. We all have a duty to take institutions that have shaped us to an even higher capability for tomorrow’s reality.”

How your donation can make a difference

We believe that by bringing together leading minds, and connecting research with industry we can contribute to solutions for current issues both locally and globally. By supporting us financially you will be helping us to:

  • Connect researchers to find solutions
  • Fund important research projects
  • Continue the advancement of knowledge in the fields of business and economics
  • Provide opportunities for students
