The Australian School of Business at the University of New South Wales has joined the Knowledge@Wharton network with the launch of its online business journal, Knowledge@Australian School of Business.

The new journal, which is free and published fortnightly, features articles focusing on the latest management thinking, economic trends, and analysis of business news in Australia and the Asia-Pacific.

Knowledge@Wharton, the award-winning online research and business analysis journal of the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, now has 1.4 million subscribers in 189 countries via editions in the US, Latin America, China, India, the Middle East and now Australia.

Speaking at the launch, Professor Alec Cameron, Dean of the Australian School of Business, said the journal will bring global visibility to the School, its academics and their research.

"Knowledge@Australian School of Business will play an important role in helping to bring together the worlds of academia and business. One of the functions of business schools is to inform public debate on business practice and government policy. The journal will translate our academic research so that business people can put it into practice," he said.

Graham Bradley, President of the Business Council of Australia said that life-long business education is vital to the success of business executives in the global economy.

"Knowledge@Australian School of Business provides the opportunity to build knowledge and skills in areas of interest and tap into the latest economic trends, government policy and developments in Australia and Asia. It is a great example of building the bridge between the university and the business community."

Professor Michael Gibbons, Deputy Dean of the Wharton School attended the Sydney launch. "At Wharton we are committed to leading the world in the creation and dissemination of business knowledge. The launch of the new Knowledge@Australian School of Business edition will bring regionally focused insight and analysis to the business community in the Asia-Pacific region and around the world," he said.

Knowledge@Australian School of Business will provide insight into business issues via timely articles, podcasts, videos, research papers and exclusive interviews with business, academic and government leaders.
