Student Program Committees

The Student Program Committee initiative aims to enhance transparency and collaboration between the School and the student body.

The committees give students an opportunity to represent their peers and have a positive impact on their degree. With one committee per Business School degree, members have an important role to play in providing a voice for their cohort. Such enthusiasm, ideas and expertise are invaluable to improving the student experience. The School encourages students to make the most of these opportunities. Be prepared, be innovative and be bold –this is a chance to make a difference!


The Student Program Committee members have an important role to play in providing a voice for their cohort. The main mission of the Student Committees are to:

  • Provide a student voice
  • Enhance the student experience
  • Create opportunities for continuous improvement
  • Foster transparency and collaboration
  • Build student engagement

Why get involved

Being a student representative is an exciting opportunity that will enable you to expand your professional networks and develop personal and professional skills.

HDR Student Program Committee

The higher degree by Research (HDR) Student Representative committee is here to assist students through their PhD journey by providing support and creating a lifelong network of Business School HDR students. Our aim as a committee is to bring the HDR cohort together, create a sense of community, and help improve the quality and experience of our HDR program. We work closely with UQ Business School staff to organise both social and research-related events and workshops that are relevant to you.
