Resources for schools

Schools can access online resources and on-campus opportunities to engage with specific areas of study.

Business

BlueShift is a business case competition open to Queensland students in Years 11 and 12. Competing teams are given a real-world case study and have four weeks to prepare and submit a solution in a written report. Finalists are then selected and are required to present their proposed solution to a panel of judges at the finals, held at our Gardens Point campus.
