Graduate orientation

Our Monash Business School Graduate Orientation Program is an essential start to your graduate studies at Monash.

The program is designed to provide you with an introduction to the University and Monash Business School, your Course Director and your fellow students. You will receive a detailed overview of the expectations of graduate studies and the services available to help you maximise your student experience. The Strategies for Academic Success workshops will help you engage in the academic, personal and professional development aspects of your studies.
