Higher Education Strategic Finance & Resource Efficiency Summit
Book Now with priority code QA3 for a 20% discount!

Higher education contributes tremendously to the Australian economy. The public perceives universities as necessary, but favour funding for big-ticket divisions like health or defence. As a result, universities lose out, as the public fails to see the value tertiary institutions contribute to the broader economy.

Simultaneously, a changing job market, declining world reputation, digital delivery and budget constraints leave the Australian higher education system at a juncture in its evolution. Universities are grappling with how to sell themselves in a globally competitive and financially constrained climate.

To rise to these competing demands, you must have a firm grounding on the financials to operate more like a business partner, which is crucial for building an informed strategy in light of ongoing uncertainty. This summit gives you the chance to engage with the latest issues facing finance functions, as you hear perspectives from around Australia on how to tackle these issues and drive success.
