Our story

The Department of Management is widely recognised as a world-class teaching and research academy and one of the largest in the region with over 65 full time academics, 70 teaching associates and a team of professional staff.

Our commitment

We are committed to the values and mission of the Monash Business School. We aim to promote a collegiate and inclusive environment in which we treat our students, staff and other stakeholders with fairness and respect. We are committed to enhancing our students’ ability to engage creatively and successfully in a global environment and strive for excellence in all aspects of our research, teaching, service and administrative activities.

Research with impact

Our aim is to deliver world class research that makes a significant contribution to scholarly management knowledge and has beneficial impacts on individuals, organisations and society. Our researchers are regularly publish in top ranked A and A* journals. In addition, our research plays an important role informing and enhancing our extensive undergraduate and graduate teaching program.

We have a rich history of engagement with business, industry and government, both in Australia and overseas. For example, since 2010, Management academics have worked with the Sri Lankan government to help women transform their micro-businesses into successful enterprises. This has also provided us with the opportunity to give our students access to the real-life case studies from this important work.

Teaching focus

Three academic groups manage our extensive learning and teaching program:

  • Human Resource Management and Employment Relations
  • Governance, Leadership and Organisation
  • International Business, Operations and Strategy

Our teaching extends across all areas of contemporary management from human resources and employment relations to international business and management, operations and supply chain, strategic management, governance, leadership and organisational studies.

We pride ourselves on industry-relevant courses. For example, our teaching programs in Human Resource Management are accredited by the Australian Human Resources Institute which includes a rigorous process of validation.

Monash Business School fosters a strong teaching environment which is supported by the annual Dean’s Awards for Teaching Excellence. Our staff are regularly the recipients of these awards which recognise innovative teaching approaches that influence, motivate and inspire students to learn. Our classes are designed to stimulate critical thinking and foster leadership.
