We have a strong commitment to producing high-quality research which has influence in the academic community, as well as relevance to industry.
Our vibrant research culture includes hosting and attending conferences, workshops and seminar series on a regular basis. Our expert academic staff currently supervise and support up to 60 graduate research degree students both on and off campus. We have three research groups which form part of the Monash Business School's Centre for Global Business and a number of research interest groups.
We encourage our staff and PhD students to actively pursue grants to further their research. In 2014, we received $1.6m in external research funding, including contracted research.
We are committed to supporting and nurturing the development of our HDR students. Some of our most talented research students have joined the ranks of our academic staff afterupon their completion of their research degrees.
Research by our academic staff is widely published in leading national and international journals.
