Federation University Australia will celebrate its links with commerce and industry as it sponsors the 2019 Federation Business School Gippsland Business Awards.

Almost 70 per cent of Federation University graduates go on to work in regional areas, with many of the university’s alumni holding senior roles across the 48 businesses announced as finalists for the awards.

Several award nominees have links with Federation University, including the Gippsland Physiotherapy Group, which has been nominated for the Health and Wellbeing Award.

The Adra Group also has been nominated for the Business and Professional Services Award, and has provided the university with design drafting for ten years.

The major winner, the Gippsland Business of the Year, will be chosen from the category winners.
