Businet is a network of international higher education institutes (both private and public universities and colleges) that share a common ethos regarding internationalization.

Businet provides an environment that encourages the sharing of good practice and encourages co-operation between like-minded individuals and like-minded organisations.

The work of Businet benefits the member institutes themselves, the staff of those member institutes as well as the students.

Businet is a membership organisation. The member institute pays an annual fee for their membership and all members of staff and the students of that organisation can involve themselves in the activities of the network.

The board of management of the organisation is elected from the staff of member institutes.

A unique feature of the organisation is that the needs of specific curriculum areas within member institutes are addressed within these groups and are referred to as curriculum working groups and special interest working groups.
