WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO BECOME A WORLD-CLASS BUSINESS SCHOOL?

In education, research and student experience, we've made strides towards global recognition.

A bold vision

It’s a bold vision to aim to be one of the world’s leading business schools – what does achieving this actually mean in practice?

We believe a great business school makes an impact in its every endeavour. We believe it harnesses the extraordinary brain power of an academic community of researchers and educators to lead, shape and influence business practice, drive new approaches to world challenges and develop students into exceptional global citizens. And we believe Monash Business School does all this and more.

We don’t expect you to take our word for it. We’re a research-intensive business school committed to evidence-based and verifiable assertions. That’s why we invite the rigorous scrutiny of the world’s most reputable arbiters of quality to test us against the highest global standards.

Our ‘triple accredited’ status shows that we have the confidence of the world’s three main business school accrediting bodies. Each independently confirms our commitment to excellence, continuous improvement and best practice across all our activities.

Another mark of a leading business school is of course, good educators – those who inspire and innovate, and who leave students with those ‘aha’ moments.

They go hand-in-hand with world-class facilities that make learning a pleasure; and stimulating teaching practices that leave passive learning well behind. Just as important are the award-winning support systems in place for those who waver or need bolstering.

And there is engagement – with students, industry, alumni and other researchers, both in Australia and more broadly. As well as engaging at home with industry, prospective students and a curious public, we reach out to the world through collaborations with international researchers. We welcome them to our part of the world through a comprehensive and growing Visitor Program.

Global impact

With 110,000 global alumni, our footprint encompasses the world. We help our students on their path to joining our alumni ranks through our commitment to an enriching student experience. In 2017 we focused on growing our international study opportunities.

These global experiences, as well as Australia-based placements, internships and business partnerships strengthen the career-readiness of our graduates.

The thread that ties everything together in a world-class business school is research excellence. At Monash Business School, we understand that business research often has broader linkages to our community and society. To make these links, we focus on enticing the best of the world’s inquiring research minds to work with us.

We can have discernible impacts on today’s business problems and tackle looming issues. Reflecting our mission of helping make the world a better place for all, we address today’s business problems – such as increasing women in leadership positions – and tackle emerging issues, from digital disruption and climate change.

We take global leadership principles seriously, with a commitment to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. We are part of the Globally Responsible Leadership initiative, which seeks to foster and develop responsible global action; and we are a signatory to the Principles of Responsible Management Education (PRME).

We mean what we say. A great business school makes an impact in its every endeavour. We invite you to read about it.
