Mission Statement

To continually strive to engender productive conversations, action and interaction between government, academia and students so that BIMA can positively impact the employability of relevant graduates.

About the council

If we are to ensure the digital talent pipeline delivers, we need to ensure that graduates leave university not only with the skills employers need, but also with the experiences and understanding that improve their employability.

The BIMA Universities Council connects government, academia, students and agencies. We’re ensuring students are ready for the workplace on graduation and that university courses are fit for purpose. We’re supporting better funding opportunities for post-grads. And we’re working to ensure that government policy delivers the right changes to our university ecosystem.
