Bond in top 5 for Qld 400

Written on the 20 November 2009

BOND University has continued a stellar year of accolades after being named one of Queensland’s top five private enterprises.

Bond was lauded as the highest-placed new entrant and fifth overall in the annual Queensland 400 list which celebrates the contributions and achievements of the State’s leading privately-held institutions.

The recognition comes in the same year the university received the top rating among Australia’s higher education community and took out the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors Sustainability Award for its Mirvac school of sustainable development.

Vice-Chancellor Professor Robert Stable, says the university encourages professionalism and ambition and is pleased to be recognised in such strong company as the other Q400 performers.

“This year Bond University has celebrated its 20th anniversary, received the most five star ratings of any Australian university, and has now been recognised among the leaders of Queensland’s privately-run sector,” says Stable.

“We’re unique among the Q400 list because we’re a university and we’re unique among universities because we’re private and not-for-profit.

“Our revenues are re-invested back into the university to continually improve the learning experience for our students and to fund relevant research.”

The inaugural Q400 list was announced in 2002 and has since become a premier business event celebrating the achievements of Queensland companies.
