INNOVATIVE LEARNING

Businesses look for graduates who have great communication skills and can adapt quickly to new challenges. Through corporate projects and industry experience, networking, career events and workshops we help you get prepared and ultimately achieve a competitive edge.

Meet influential employers and work on industry projects. There are also many opportunities to meet recruiters and industry leaders. Plus, by joining the Monash Business School alumni community you’ll become part of a huge network of professionals to stay connected with throughout your career.

In flipped classrooms you’ll build your understanding of a topic before class, then apply what you’ve learnt to real business problems – with teachers on hand to offer practical guidance. And in your final-year Capstone unit, you’ll get real workplace experience that counts towards your degree.

I took the opportunity to be part of the Global Consulting Group. The Global Consulting Group is an organisation that recruits students from the campus. We got to work with a real, not for profit client and do some pro bono work. That was really good experience in the field and I found it really interesting.”

I was lucky to do a placement with ShineWing Australia, who have a partnership with Monash Business School. I learned so much in six weeks, my notebook was so thick! Economics and accounting both helped me during that placement because I was able to gain an understanding of what drives a business to make the decisions that they do, and also the impact that this has on clients.”

I enjoy the flipped classroom experiences; they enhance the interaction you have with other students and teachers. I’m looking forward to applying the concepts I’ve learnt at university.”

BUILD YOUR FUTURE TAILOR YOUR DEGREE WHERE DO I START?

Monash Business School will prepare you for a career in business, however you imagine it. With a huge range of courses, real-world learning and study abroad* opportunities, you can tailor your degree to your interests and goals. Do you want a comprehensive or specialist degree? Do you know exactly what area of business you want to study? Or do you want to taste‑test a few different areas first? See pages 8 and 15 to understand if a comprehensive course or a specialist course is right for you. Are you a people or a numbers person? This is a good way to start thinking about whether to take a commerce or business path. Business offers practical learning, as you’ll develop a deep insight into how organisations work across all business functions. As a general rule, business also has a stronger focus on people-based topics such as marketing, management, business law and HR. Commerce is more analytical and conceptual, with a bigger emphasis on quantitative and mathematical topics such as business analytics, econometrics, marketing science and actuarial science. Once you’ve built this specialised knowledge, you’ll be able to use data to solve problems and find solutions in commercial contexts. * S ee page 4 for more details.

How much maths have you done? The level of maths you’ve completed (or will complete) in Year 12 will determine some of the options available to you. If you’re interested in the Bachelor of Commerce, you’ll need Year 12 higher maths and an ATAR of 90+. The Bachelor of Business requires Year 12 maths and an ATAR of 82+, or you can do a Bachelor of Business Administration with Year 11 maths and an ATAR of 72+. The table on page 29 provides more detail on ATAR and IB requirements. Can’t decide between two different career directions? Monash has a large offering of courses. You can choose a double degree to combine two different passions. You can also do a double major to build complementary skill sets.


WHICH STUDY AREAS INTEREST YOU? There are a number of ways to explore a study area, depending on the emphasis you choose. You can do an entire Bachelor degree in one study area, or choose to undertake a second major or minor by using your elective units.

I chose Commerce to obtain the skills required to assess risk in insurance, finance and other industries, and my favourite areas of study include mathematical and statistical methods, which are used to quantify and manage risk. Our teachers are friendly and come to our classes with a clear purpose. Each challenge they set requires effort and completing a challenge is enjoyable and rewarding. I’ve secured a job as an equity researcher in an asset management firm, where I’m using what I’ve learned to assess the risk of individual publicly listed firms and provide investment advice to investors. In future, I’d like to become an actuary and apply what I have learned to make a positive impact on the world.” YU LI Bachelor of Commerce (Honours)

The experience of opening your new iPhone box. The hassle-free process you just went through to switch banks. How you feel when you walk into your favourite store. It’s not by accident.

Commerce

Biomedical science is responsible for many of the breakthroughs that have shaped the history of human health – and the work never stops. For every disease cured, life prolonged or discovery made, many more challenges lie ahead. As research continues and the industry inevitably expands, the need for effective commercialisation is also growing. This double degree will give you the skills and insight required to navigate the transition from science lab to world stage.

What defines us as individuals, including our friends, conversations, and desires, also define us as systems – of action, behaviour and data, all operating alongside one another. If you’ve got an analytical mind, you might recognise the potential here. From algorithms and big data, to digital innovation, this double degree will show you how analytical insight can be used to face challenges and create opportunities in the commercial world.

Engineering (Honours)

Commerce

Engineers are in high demand right across the workforce. You’ll find them in just about every sector, working as CEOs, consultants, project managers, politicians, designers and researchers. Beyond their specialisation, they’re also taught to approach problems creatively, and use logic to come up with inventive solutions. Adding commercial acumen is a killer combination to help you reach your career goals – however ambitious they are.

Business

Pursue what you’re interested in – which might be languages, international relations, behavioural studies or any one of 40 arts majors – while achieving a skillset to apply in any professional setting. You could combine a criminology major in your Arts degree with an accounting major in your Business degree - a career as a forensic investigator perhaps?! Or combine a business analytics major in your Commerce degree with a theatre studies major in your Arts degree to get a head start in entertainment.

Business Administration

There is so much that goes on behind the scenes to keep a business running smoothly and achieving commercial success. The larger that business gets, the more complex the operation becomes – throw public image into the mix, and things get really interesting. This double degree will show you how businesses work on the back end, and provide the skills required to bring them to life in the public eye.

SCHOLARSHIPS TO UNLOCK YOUR TALENT A scholarship will help you make the most of your time at university. And that’s why Monash offer more than 400 types of scholarships. Academic scholarships

Indigenous students

Monash want as many bright minds as possible to benefit from a Monash education. Scholarship programs include the Sir John Monash Scholarships which aim to attract academically gifted students. Monash also recognise those students who make a difference in the lives of other students by becoming mentors.

Monash offer many scholarships to support Indigenous students.

Equity scholarships Monash recognise that sometimes your ATAR doesn’t reflect your potential. If you’re from a low-income background, have a disability or medical condition, live in a regional or remote area, are from an asylum seeking background, or have experienced difficult circumstances, there are scholarships to ensure that none of these factors prevent you from pursuing your education.

31

Accommodation scholarships Scholarships can help cover the costs of your accommodation, and there are even scholarships to support any relocation costs if you’re from a rural area. At Monash, we believe in giving our students the best chance to achieve their potential.
