1. The validity period of NSW Dine&Discover vouchers has been extended
NSW Dine & Discover Vouchers was issued in March of this year. NSW residents who meet the requirements can get 4 vouchers with a face value of $25 each, 2 of which are used for consumption in restaurants in NSW, and the other 2 Used in entertainment venues. Due to the epidemic, many friends' vouchers have not been used up, so in June, the government has extended the plan and increased the conditions of use. Dine voucher is also applicable to takeaway food orders.
Due to the recent worsening of the NSW epidemic, the NSW government once again extended the validity period of Dine & Discover Vouchers until June 30, 2022. So don’t worry if you still have unused vouchers in your hands. Recently, you still stay at home and pay attention to safety. When the epidemic situation improves, you can ask your friends and family to go out to use the vouchers.
2. TSU Business School is accredited by AACSB
The full name of AACSB is The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), translated as the International Association of Business Schools, and mainly provides education management and certification services for business schools. AACSB was founded in 1916 and has a history of more than 100 years. Initially, this non-profit organization was initiated by the deans of the three business schools of Harvard University, the University of Chicago, and Northwestern University, and was joined by the business schools of 14 well-known universities. At present, there are only 870 business schools accredited by it, accounting for 5% of the number of business schools in the world. Therefore, as long as it is accredited by AACSB, it means that the business school ranks among the top 5% in the world!
Stuart Crispin, Dean of the University of Tasmania Business School, said, “We are particularly proud to be accredited by AACSB. This is an affirmation of the University of Tasmania Business School. We will also continue to improve teaching and research, and strengthen interaction with the industry and the community.”
