There is much discussion on impactful research and the need for business schools to reach out, influence and provide further input and sustainable solutions to challenges facing society, businesses, and the environment today. Collaboration with the media provides the ability to communicate and engage with wider audiences including the government, community, and industry – locally, regionally, and internationally.
