Visitors Program

Each year, the Department of Economics welcomes academic visitors from around the world to Monash University. During their visit, these scholars share their knowledge with our staff and students through meetings, seminars, and informal discussions. Most of our visitors present during the weekly Economics Seminar Series.

Through the Visitors Program, our staff and students engage and collaborate with leading researchers from around the world.
