Engagement and collaboration
The Department of Management invites businesses, professionals and policy communities to work with us.
Becoming involved with the Department not only gives your organisation access to some of the most innovative thought leaders and international research experts, but also provides access to a network of high quality students, graduates and alumni.
Management students and researchers benefit from links with the practical world of business. A very active program of research collaboration and consultancy takes place with organisations that are keen to share our new knowledge and learn about the latest trends in their respective industry.
We have a rich history of engagement with business, industry and government, both in Australia and overseas.
Connecting Management graduates with business
Our Monash Careers Connect recruitment events and programs also help to connect management graduates with businesses seeking talented people to join their teams and make a difference in their organisations.
Our department is committed to undertaking research that influences academia and that has a positive impact on the world. Many of today's global issues require a multifaceted approach.
Therefore, we have a commitment to collaborations and partnerships through our research. By working with researchers from within Monash Business School, the University at large, as well as researchers from external institutions across the world, we can tackle these complex issues in a comprehensive manner.
Here is a sample of our collaborative work:
Health care futures
An Australian Research Council Linkage grant, "Towards the health care system of the future: The role of institutional entrepreneurship in service redesign and innovation" in partnership with the Victorian Hospital Reform Commission of the Department of Health, Monash Health, Eastern Health, Barwon Health, Western Health and Warwick Business School.
"Human Resource Management (HRM) Outsourcing and Shared Services: Analysing Changing Approaches to HRM"
"Regulation of work and employment: Towards a multidisciplinary, multilevel framework"
Researchers: Professor Greg Bamber, Dr Jenny Rodriguez, Dr Tracy Scurry, Dr Stewart Johnstone, Professor Steve Hughes and Professor Paul Stewart.
Global Accreditation Standards
For a number of years Professor Amrik Sohal and Associate Professor Daniel Prajogo have been collaborating on research projects with the Joint Accreditation System – Australia and New Zealand (JAS-ANZ).
Grants and awards
Researchers from our Department had great success in the 2015 round of the Australia Awards Fellowship Program, with three projects led by our researchers receiving a total of over $1.25 million in funding through the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade grants scheme.
- Associate Professor Quamrul Alam and Professor Julian Teicher received a grant for their project 'Capacity Development of Bangladesh Public Servants for Infrastructure Management'. This project will bring a group of 20 Bangladeshi public servants to Australia for eight weeks. They will attend workshops and seminars, and visit Australian major infrastructure projects built using public-private partnerships.
- The grant received by Associate Professor Ramanie Samaratunge and Dr Lakmal Abeysekera will allow them to study further the skills development of district/divisional secretariats for improving small to medium enterprises in Sri Lanka. The project will enhance the leadership and entrepreneurship skills of district and divisional secretaries, assisting them to promote small and micro-business ventures in Sri Lanka. This project is aligned with major development projects in Sri Lanka and will improve the living standards of poverty-stricken families, in particular those headed by women.
- Dr Jagjit Plahe is leading a cross-faculty research project with Associate Professor Zane Ma Rhea from the Faculty of Education, Professor Marika Vicziany from the Faculty of Arts, and Professor Chris Arup from the Department of Business Law and Taxation. Their project, 'Understanding/Promoting links between traditional culture/knowledge, food security and sustainability in South Asia', aims to enhance the capacity of 25 South Asian fellows to research, document and utilise traditional knowledge systems in addressing food and livelihood security especially in remote, rural communities. It also aims to enhance the capacity of the fellows to promote the role of women in local agriculture.
