College of Business, Law and Governance

The College of Business, Law and Governance (CBLG) is part of the Division of Tropical Environments and Societies and delivers a range of courses in Cairns, Singapore, Townsville and Brisbane*. It is led by the Dean, Professor David Low and promotes, fosters, supports and administers quality teaching and research across four key areas:

Formed in 2014 to provide new opportunities and collaborations for both education and research, a primary focus of the College is ethics, sustainability and governance, as well as an understanding of complex business systems. Our courses equip future leaders with life-long skills that have practical applications in the workplace, and are designed with a variety of options to facilitate lifestyle and work commitments, whether it be studying online or on campus, or on a full or part time basis. 

Our multi-campus locations and world-class academics bring an international perspective to our teaching and research. Leading-edge postgraduate study areas reflect global industry needs and include international business, sustainable practice, creativity and innovation, political science, and information technology.

Together with our academic agenda, CBLG is proud to support a number of community organisations and initiatives across the Cairns and Townsville regions. 

*Brisbane campus is operated by Russo Higher Education.
