Macquarie’s global success recognised in Premier’s NSW Export Awards

18 October 2019


Macquarie University has been recognised for its strong global partnerships, winning a Premier’s New South Wales Export Award in the category of International Education and Training.

In total, 18 NSW businesses were recognised for their outstanding success and contribution to the state’s trade output, at an awards ceremony this week.

The International Education and Training Award highlights outstanding innovation and international success in the field of education and training services, expertise and curriculum.

Macquarie’s success in the awards was based on the University’s holistic approach to building research, corporate and study partnerships across the world.

Deputy Premier and Minister for Regional NSW, Industry and Trade John Barilaro congratulated the outstanding NSW exporters who attended the 2019 Premier’s NSW Export Awards.

“These businesses represent the very best NSW has to offer – from small family-owned businesses to listed corporations, they are making a tangible contribution not only to NSW but across Australia,” Mr Barilaro said.

Pro-Vice Chancellor (International) Nicole Brigg said the award is reflective of Macquarie’s global outlook and commitment to building enduring international partnerships.

“This is a wonderful result and testament to our long term, sustainable and diversified approach to not only international student recruitment, but global partnerships,” Ms Brigg said.

“I’m proud of the team that have worked tirelessly in an increasingly competitive and complex global market to bring together rich relationships that benefit our students, community and partners.”
