5 ways Monash Business School prepares students for international success

In an increasingly global world, employers want graduates who have a global outlook and experience. Here are 5 CV-enhancing ways Monash Business School can help you land that globe-trotting job.

Get some international experience

Monash Business School offers students a range of opportunities for international experience. You can study for a semester at an overseas university, join a short-term international study tour or gain work experience with a global industry partner. You receive an immersive experience – that also counts towards your final degree.

Monash has a large global footprint and students can enrol in a unit at one of the university’s international campuses such as Prato, Italy, or at a partner university such as Peking University, China.

The Business School’s study tours instil invaluable industry awareness, explaining how business is conducted in key centres around the world including Sri Lanka, China, Chile, San Francisco, Germany, France and the UK. There is also a range of overseas industry placements offering international work experience in countries such as Singapore, Vietnam, Hong Kong, China, Indonesia, India and Japan.

Do an industry placement

In a competitive environment for landing top jobs, Monash Business School offers an established Work Integrated Learning (WIL) program to international and domestic students.

These industry placements not only help students gain invaluable industry experience, skills and networks, they also help them to find a job post-graduation. A number of the school’s employer partners hire interns upon graduation or provide references and guidance for career development.

Monash Business School links with some of the world’s most successful companies, including L’Oreal, EY, PwC, adidas, Deloitte, ANZ, Shell, Macquarie, IBM, KPMG, Grant Thornton and Adecco.

Tailor your course

As Australia’s largest business school, Monash is well equipped to offer an extensive range of courses and opportunities to suit students with diverse needs. The Business School offers two sorts of undergraduate degrees – comprehensive and specialist – as well as double degrees and masters courses. Comprehensive courses offer students a broad business understanding with maximum flexibility as well as the ability for students to tailor their interests. Specialist courses equip learners with the right mix of skills for their professional field such as accounting, actuarial science, economics, marketing and finance.

Many students choose to complete a double degree to enhance their expertise and career opportunities including double degrees with Law, Science, Arts, Design, Global Studies, Media Communication, Engineering and IT.

Monash is also home to one of the world’s leading research-intensive business schools. For this reason, it is one of the best places to do a PhD. The extensive scale of research capabilities combined with the breadth of specialist expertise within the school means there are graduate research opportunities across the range of applied business and policy disciplines.

Gain professional recognition

Monash Business School is among the one percent of global business schools that hold the prestigious ‘triple accreditation’ by the three global business school accrediting bodies: the AACSB, EQUIS and AMBA. The upshot is that Monash Business School degree qualifications are recognised and valued around the world.

Monash Business School is also ranked among the best business schools in the Asia Pacific region for econometrics, cognitive and behavioural economics and development economics.

(The school’s accounting, econometrics and marketing research has also been given a five star ranking – the highest ranking – by the Australian Research Council.)

Many of the Business School’s specialist courses are designed to meet the accreditation requirements of professional bodies – meaning students are already on their way to being recognised by their chosen profession.

Learn from the best

University isn’t just about going to lectures any more. Monash Business School has adopted the very latest teaching methods and ensures what students learn in the classroom are true reflections of what actually takes place in today’s workplaces. Courses at the Business School have a final year Capstone unit, allowing students to apply the knowledge they have learnt in a practical context – whether this is through an international study tour, a corporate project or industry internship.

Many of the degrees offered at Monash Business School use a flipped classroom approach. This is where students come to class having already read the online materials. They then use this theory within the classroom where dynamic debate and industry case studies are discussed and worked through. This applied learning approach helps students make the link between academic study and the real workplace environment.
