The new Vice-Chancellor of the University of Wollongong, Professor Paul Wellings,  sent out a video message to the alumni.

He advised in his letter that there are now almost 100,000 graduates.

Clearly, the business of education, which has become a very important economic asset for a city once wholly dominated by a steel mill. Universities and university education have tangible and intangible benefits. Adopting business model creates an institutional dependency on the economic well-being of our neighbours, perhaps which following recent developments cannot be taken for granted. I wonder  whether in an authentic sense education can be framed as  a business.
