The world is changing and we’re changing with it

Driven by curiosity and powered by expertise, at Monash Business School we are committed to exploring new ideas and building the evidence based case for change.

Our purpose is clear. Inspired by the University’s namesake, Sir John Monash, our exploration of the new frontiers of our disciplines is driven by a desire to make a difference. We strive always to make a positive impact in service of our many communities.

In the digital age, researchers have greater and more immediate access to rich datasets, a treasure trove of information in which to test theories and examine connections, trends and impacts. Data proliferates at an unimaginable pace, opening up ever more exciting fields of study and methodologies.

Monash Business School puts quality at the centre of everything we do. We demand the highest standards of ourselves, so that we can cement our reputation for relevance and expertise.

Independent peer review is an intrinsic pillar of academe. To build trust in our brand, we trust others to validate our quality. The contest of ideas has become highly volatile in the public sphere, so recognition as a trusted source of knowledge is more important than ever as we pursue our objective to positively influence and impact our world.

We submit our research to reputable journals for peer-review by relevant experts. We participate in rankings and strive to learn from the insights their independent methodologies produce. We embrace accreditations as frameworks that help us continuously improve across everything we do.

Our latest accreditation cycle commenced in 2018, when we achieved reaccreditation for the maximum five-year period by AACSB. In 2019, we celebrated the completion of the cycle with stellar outcomes from AMBA and EQUIS.

Maintaining this esteemed triple accreditation affirms our place among the very best of business schools around the world.

Through accreditation, we invite peer review from the leaders of other worldclass business schools and gain valuable 360-degree insights. In the 2018-2019 cycle, our accreditors were impressed by the hard evidence of our quality outputs.

But they also identified a crucial element that cannot be measured in a spreadsheet—the positive energy and shared purpose of our community of staff, students, alumni and industry partners.

We enjoy exceptional goodwill and support for our future as a world-leading business school. With our strong foundation and a quality profile of immense depth and breadth, we are poised to make a significant step-change in our global standing.

We will do this through influential engagement, communication and leadership and with a focus on developing active partnerships that position Monash Business School as a leading voice of influence.

We are dynamic partners in initiatives as diverse as driving energy sustainability in Australia, to preparing our students to thrive as adaptable and creative thinkers, as we continue to embrace Industry 4.0 and the immense changes of this fourth industrial revolution.
