2 Faculty of Business and Economics
Welcome from the Dean Professor Margaret Abernethy decided to step down in early 2012, after steadfastly leading the Faculty for eight and a half years through change, while continuously improving research, teaching and engagement outcomes. Margaret has left the Faculty in outstanding shape, reflected in rankings that put the Faculty in the World’s top 30. It is a great honour for me to assume the Dean’s role, allowing me to work with world class academics, the brightest of students, alumni and other key stakeholders to further our ambition to join the world’s top universities in business and economics.
This annual report serves to record and celebrate the achievements and performance of the Faculty of Business and Economics and its people in 2012, and provides a snapshot of our aspirations for 2013 − I hope you will read it with interest.

2012 – A year of achievement
Student achievement 101!
Associate Professor Angel Paladino, of the Department of Management and Marketing, was one of three winners of the 2012 Hormel Teaching Excellence Award, part of the 10th Annual Marketing Management Association Master Teacher Award Competition.
Each year the Faculty is abuzz with activities including public lectures, conferences, important visitors, student competitions and a raft of events where we engage with the public and industry. Student and staff achievements are far too numerous for me to mention each of them here, however, below are some of our talented community’s highlights and successes. In its annual review, the University commended the Faculty for outstanding results in our eLearning practice and online subject delivery; and in research and research training, for our emphasis on quality and impact of our research outcomes. This was further recognised in a national review comprising 162 research case studies submitted by 12 universities that found that the Faculty’s Household Income and Labour Dynamics in Australia (HILDA) Survey has had a ‘substantial impact on Australian policy development’, including the Henry Tax Review, the Paid Parental Leave policy, federal minimum wage decisions, and monetary policy. Our GSBE Student Centre was ranked number one for the second year in a row for customer service at the University of Melbourne. This result underlines our commitment to an outstanding experience and service for our students, enabling them to concentrate on their studies and achieve excellent outcomes.
An impressive 101 commerce students featured on the Dean’s Honours list in 2012. The Bachelor of Commerce Medal was awarded to Mr Pak Shing Ho, who achieved the best academic result over the three years of the BCom. Commerce students overcame strong opposition to win the prestigious McGill Management International Case Competition in Montreal. Extensive work by academic and professional staff and a network of committed alumni supported this remarkable feat. Accountancy student Tristan Webster was awarded the highly prestigious Menzies Foundation Scholarship to Harvard. Copland Scholar, Yukun (Daniel) Luo, was awarded the top international student Premier VCE Award for outstanding academic achievement. Our students are also excelling in the sporting arena with GSBE student, Cameron McKenzie–McHarg competing in the rowing at the London Olympics.
Staff leadership and excellence Our academic staff are leaders in research and teaching. Among the many highlights and awards received by academics in 2012, some noteworthy ones include: Professor of Management and Associate Dean (Global Engagement), Bill Harley, was appointed the General Editor of the Journal of Management Studies, becoming the first Australian-based General Editor in the fifty-year history of this prestigious journal.
Sarah Hinchliffe of the Department of Accounting was invited to be a visiting scholar at Harvard University for the 2012–2013 academic year. Professor Nilss Olekalns became Deputy Dean (Faculty), bringing a wealth of experience in the governance of the University’s academic programs and personal excellence in delivering those programs. The Centre for Market Design (CMD) was launched, aiming to bring government policy and the economics field closer together, while providing an institutional framework to build research capacity and policy collaboration. The professional staff that sustain the management and administration of the Faculty were recognised for their excellence through the Professional Staff Development Scholarship. The Scholarship supports outstanding staff to undertake projects advancing management practice in the Faculty and to strengthen links with other GO8 or Universitas 21 institutions. Congratulations to the scholarship winners: Louisa Tobin, of the Commerce Student Centre; Caitlin Lohman, of the Advancement Marketing Alumni Unit; and Sue Elston, of the Business & Economics Careers Centre.

It was inspiring to see the level of interest and passion for study at this Faculty among prospective students and their parents. The commitment and dedication of academic, professional and volunteer staff to providing a memorable introductory experience to our programs was palpable throughout the day.
October marked an historic occasion where the Faculty and the Melbourne Business School agreed to forge closer ties. Under the agreement, an expanded Faculty of Business and Economics will include the Melbourne Business School. All graduate programs in business and economics, including the Master of Business Administration (MBA) will be offered through the Melbourne Business School, which will become the sole graduate school for business and economics at Melbourne. Both parties are working together to establish the new structures by 1 May 2013.
Professional staff appointments and farewells Notable appointments during the year included Eluned McFarlane, appointed to the role of Human Resources Manager, and Beverley Webster, new Director of the Centre for Excellence in Learning and Teaching. Brooke Young, Director, Marketing and Commercial Engagement departed to become Vice-President of Marketing at Victoria University. Brooke has made a significant and important contribution to the development and strong growth of the Faculty over her 11 years of service.
Celebration In August, thousands of people flocked to the Faculty for Open Day, one of the most important annual events on the University calendar.
6 Faculty of Business and Economics
Melbourne Institute celebrated its 50th Anniversary in 2012. Since 1962, Melbourne Institute has enhanced the wellbeing of all Australians through its cutting-edge research and its sustained contribution to economic and social policy development. Melbourne Institute held its 8th highly successful Economic and Social Outlook Conference, ‘Securing the Future – How Australia can survive in a volatile world’. The Business and Economics Career Centre (BECC) celebrated the ten–year anniversary of the Career Mentoring Program, which began in 2003 with ten mentors and mentees. In 2012, over 180 graduate and undergraduate students from the Faculty were matched with 150 industry mentors. The Faculty commissioned artist Peter Churcher, one of the leading exponents of contemporary figurative painting in Australia, to paint a portrait of Professor Max Corden. This portrait adds significantly to the historic and cultural heritage of the Faculty, and celebrates the outstanding contribution Professor Corden has made to economics and to the broader community.
The second annual Melbourne Foundation for Business and Economics dinner hosted 530 guests at the Sydney Myer Mural Hall. The event was a wonderful opportunity to recognise distinguished alumni with Faculty awards, including the new Margaret Abernethy Scholarship for Leadership in Community Engagement. The Scholarship will acknowledge, encourage and support high achieving students who show outstanding leadership in community engagement.
Engagement We were honoured to have renowned Financial Times Associate Editor and Chief Economics Commentator, Martin Wolf, CBE, give the 2012 Corden Lecture on how the financial crisis changed the world. With over 500 people attending, it was one of the largest public lectures in the Faculty in 2012. The 73rd CPA Australia University of Melbourne Annual Research Lecture held special significance for the Department of Accounting with the event marking Professor Naomi Soderstrom’s inaugural professorial lecture at the University. Over 300 attendees, including National President of CPA Australia, Mr John Cahill, joined Professor Soderstrom for this milestone event.
In the news The Faculty received a total of 4092 media mentions in 2012, a 72% increase on 2011. Driving this media coverage was a total of 49 press releases issued throughout the year âˆ’ nearly one a week. B&E News, the Faculty blog, showcased our research, events and media coverage, and experienced close to a 50% growth in visitors. 43,964 visitors came to the blog in 2012 with 22,987 visiting in 2011. In 2012, the number of our Twitter followers doubled to over 700, drawn by a news-driven strategy that highlights our pertinent research. This strategy promotes research from the Melbourne Institute and highlights relevant issues in the public domain.
2013 outlook As I referred to above, a FBEâ€“MBS Collaboration Principles Agreement was made in October 2012. There is a six-month timetable to complete the process, with the aim of new structures being in place by 1 May 2013. To ensure the commitment and goodwill necessary for any such arrangement to prosper this is to be a permanent change, not a trial.
Inaugural James Riady Chair in Asian Business and Economics
The Agreement includes a proposed structure which combines the highly regarded undergraduate, graduate and executive education of both entities under the single, expanded Faculty of Business and Economics. A working party will be established to oversee detailed implementation of the Principles, establishing the new structures by the May deadline. Taskforce groups will work through the detail of targeted areas and report to the working party.
Professor Lu will bring to the role an exceptional track record of research in international business strategy. Her applied work on Japanese foreign direct investment in China, joint ventures of small and medium sized enterprises and venture capital and business group affiliations in the Asian region is internationally regarded.
In 2013, the Faculty will make a clear statement about its strategic intentions in the Asian region by appointing a renowned Asian business expert, Professor Jane Lu, to the inaugural James Riady Chair in Asian Business and Economics.
The James Riady Chair in Asian Business and Economics is funded through a generous donation by Dr James Riady, an alumnus of the Faculty of Business and Economics, with the objective to support
teaching and research that drives a deeper understanding of doing business in the Asian region. As Chair, Professor Lu will communicate her research outcomes through public engagement activities including lectures, seminars and conferences. These will assist in enhancing our understanding of doing business in Asia. Professor Lu will also play a leadership role in developing Asia-focused teaching and engagement activities. The James Riady Chair sits at the heart of the dedicated Asian Business and Economics Centre within the Faculty, and Professor Luâ€™s appointment will ensure we build on existing links, delivering invaluable research and powerful scholarly insights into this region.
Annual Report 2012 Outlook 2013 7
New Heads I am delighted that we will have another two new heads of department: Anne Lillis will be the new Head of the Department of Accounting and Leisa Sargent the new Head of the Department of Management and Marketing. Earlier appointments saw Bill Griffiths assume the Headship of Economics and John Handley the Head of the Department of Finance.

Research and research training
Massive open online courses
In the area of research and research training, Professor Anne–Wil Harzing will step down after three years. At significant sacrifice to her personal research time, Anne–Wil has revolutionised the role, creating a new benchmark across the University. She has been a staunch advocate for our research credentials within the University and beyond (nationally and internationally). Her insistence on quality and the impact of our Faculty research outcomes have lifted our performance to a new (sustainable) level and the two sets of ERA results demonstrate this shift.
In 2013, the University will join international universities including Stanford and Princeton in the Coursera consortium, an exciting experiment in online and digital learning – massive open online courses, or MOOCs. The Faculty subject, Principles of Macroeconomics (six-week, free course), quickly became the University’s most popular course. Of the approximately 52,000 people enrolled in online courses offered by the University, around 23% are enrolled in Professor Nilss Olekalns’ macroeconomics subject.
Professor John Haisken–DeNew, Professorial Research Fellow and Deputy Director (Research), Melbourne Institute, will take over the reins as Associate Dean of Research and Research Training. In addition to his positions at Melbourne, Professor Haisken–DeNew is Professor of Economics and holds the Chair of Economic Policy: Competition Theory and Policy at the Ruhr University Bochum, Germany. He is also Adjunct Professor of the Department of Economics at McMaster University, Canada.
Annual Foundation Dinner I am very much looking forward to our annual Foundation Dinner. The aim of the Foundation is to secure a strong endowment that will assist us to build our national and international standing as one of the world’s leading schools of business and economics. Support will enable us to fulfill our commitment to widen participation, enhance the university experience of our students and make possible a research agenda that seeks to address issues facing our world. The 2012 Dinner contributed $629,000 to the Foundation and has enabled us to make strong progress, but the need for continued support is undiminished.
Our students Undergraduate students Programs At the undergraduate level the Faculty of Business and Economics offers: • Bachelor of Commerce • Bachelor of Commerce (Chancellor’s Scholars Program) • Bachelor of Commerce (Honours).
2012 report Enrolments Over 5,000 students were enrolled in the Bachelor of Commerce in 2012, either studying a single degree or a combined degree. There are 54 countries represented in the student cohort.

Survey, 76% of graduates available for full-time work were employed full-time within four months of completing the BCom. Graduates also report a median starting salary that is 10% higher than the national average.
Above average BCom graduates report a median starting salary 10% higher than the national average.
The Bachelor of Commerce is one of the most popular courses in Victoria, indicated by 2013 demand. For entry in Semester 1, close to 1,800 students chose either the BCom or the BCom (Chancellor’s Scholars’ Program) as their preferred degree. The calibre of applicants continues to be extremely high, with ATAR entry requirements set at 95.00 for Commonwealth Supported Places in the BCom and 99.90 for students in the Chancellor’s Scholars’ Program. A total of 901 offers were made for Commonwealth Supported Places in Semester 1, compared to 810 offers in 2012.

Service excellence Two Commerce Student Centre staff recognised for excellent customer service, winning the University’s Service Star Award.
Our students first in international management competition In March, the FBE’s student team overcame strong opposition to win the prestigious McGill Management International Case Competition in Montreal, Canada. The McGill case competition is one of the most respected in the world, with fierce competition amongst the world’s top business schools for invitations to compete. Students are challenged on their ability to see and convey the ‘big
picture’, testing them on their cumulative knowledge in many fields, as well as their teamwork and presentations skills. The penultimate challenge saw our students given 24 hours to develop a series of recommendations in response to a contemporary strategic business issue. Students involved in case competitions received extensive support from Faculty Advisors
Professor Simon Bell and Associate Professor Jennifer Grafton as well as the professional staff in the Commerce Student Centre. In addition, the alumni network of the Faculty generously helped with the training program. Congratulations to our talented students and sincere thanks to all staff and alumni for providing competition support.

Lending a helping hand in Cambodia Microfinance provides millions of poor people with no credit history, collateral, or steady income with access to basic financial services. Founded within the Faculty in late 2010, the Melbourne Microfinance Initiative (MMI) is the first and largest microfinance club in Australia, and is entirely student-run. Daniel Tram, BCom student, recounts a recent trip to Cambodia to work with an NGO there. “Over the winter break, five BCom students and myself escaped the freezing weather of Melbourne and travelled to Cambodia to work with the NGO ‘Journeys Within Our Community’ (JWOC).
“We have been working with JWOC for a year and a half and this was the MMI Cambodia Initiative’s second trip. Deliverables we worked on during the trip included: Creating a microfinance glossary for new volunteers, troubleshooting the microfinance software used, creating a JWOC loan collection handbook and designing a risk scorecard to cut down on the time needed to assess borrowers. In addition, we ran a series of classes for JWOC’s university volunteers with topics that varied from excel functions to credit risk. “Working on these projects was truly rewarding as we were able to see the knowledge and skills that we

had learnt from countless lectures and tutes put into action. I will never forget the moment when one of our team leaders – Simon – solved a problem that JWOC was having with their microfinance software. The microfinance project manager Sovann actually whooped with joy, smiling widely when he was able to back up their database as they had been having problems for several months. It is moments like this – knowing we have a direct positive effect on people’s life – that are exceptionally satisfying.”
Undergraduate student services and experience
Where have all the entrepreneurs gone?
Commerce Student Centre The Commerce Student Centre (CSC) provides high quality service for undergraduate students. In 2012, two of our staff were recognised for excellent customer service by winning the University’s Service Star Award. The CSC provides administrative and transactional services; student advice, including detailed course and course planning advice; and dedicated enrichment and professional development activities, which include student exchange, case competitions, career mentoring, volunteering and community engagement.
Student experience Student experience opportunities provide students access to a rich suite of programs and activities developed to enhance and complement the BCom degree. Through support provided by our student experience team within the CSC, we help our students to realise their potential as leaders in communities and as effective global citizens.
Recent research claims that Australian culture stifles the entrepreneurial spirit. If Australia is to capitalise on its natural advantages in this ‘Asian Century’ what role will entrepreneurship play? Imagine you have 48 hours to create a company and pitch it to established businessmen. This was the daunting challenge put to Bachelor of Commerce student Greg Weissberg and his teammates in a ‘Student Start-up Hackathon’. Greg is a member of Student Entrepreneurs Inc, Australia’s largest innovation- and entrepreneurship-focused student organisation. Founded in 2007 at the University of Melbourne, it now has over 1,400 members. Greg is proud to say that, ‘The Hackathon was the best experience I had with regard to entrepreneurship.”
Greg Weissberg and teammate Peter Juel Jensen enjoy their first real-life entrepreneurial experience winning the Hackathon.

Award recognises student-led microfinance innovation Master of Management student Melanie Alforque won the 2012 Graduate Student Association Student of the Year Award. Melanie is an inspiration to the graduate student community through her passionate work as a student ambassador, providing guidance to prospective students via events and social media. Melanie has played an integral role in student clubs. In 2010, she assisted in creating the first Microfinance Club in Australia and played a leading role in the expansion of the Melbourne Microfinance Initiative as its President. Her work in establishing poverty alleviation programs, education events and in securing grants, helped the Microfinance Initiative expand in its formative years. As the President, she coordinated international student-led consulting projects in Ghana, Kenya, Cambodia and Laos, and continues to act as a mentor for the Initiative. She has also volunteered for Student Connect – a program to help others transition through university.

A positive student experience In the most recent Subject Experience Survey the average score for graduate subjects in response to the question, “Is the subject well taught?” increased to 4.2 on a 5-point scale, achieving the target set by the University.
Executive programs The GSBE now administers all academic programs offered by UoM Commercial, on behalf of the Faculty, with the
exception of tailored and custom programs. The GSBE is now offering the Executive Master of Enterprise and the Executive Master of Supply Chain Management for applicants with 7+ years work experience. See page 15 for more information.
Developing leaders and global citizens The Creating Future Leaders series brought our BCom and Masters students into conversation with engaging and high profile speakers including The Hon. John Brumby, VC Fellow and former Premier of Victoria, and Alex Malley, CEO, CPA Australia. The GSBE Global Communication and Leadership Award saw 96 students undertaking volunteer and professional development activities to earn points towards the Award. During 2012, 15 students undertook exchange to a range of institutions in Europe and North America.
Qualifications review The Master of Management was the first course at the University to undergo a review as part of the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) being introduced Australia-wide. All degrees in Australia must be AQF compliant by 2015.
Building a vibrant cohort experience Over 900 students participated in Orientation day activities. The Pre-Semester Program provided
370 commencing students with a challenging case competition supported by skills and information sessions, coaching from senior staff and dedicated student hosts. The new Graduation Celebration format awarded the Dean’s Honours List and GSBE Director’s Award, and saw over 1100 graduands and family members enjoy a post-ceremony celebration with staff and colleagues.
Business practicums and case competitions More than 220 students competed in the semesterly Strategy Presentation Challenge case competition over two weeks on a real business problem presented by our corporate sponsors – Australian Stock Report (Semester 1) and NAB (Semester 2). Students in the 2012 Global Business Practicum subject completed consulting-style projects in high-profile companies in Mumbai, Singapore, Shanghai and Kuala Lumpur. Dr Brent Coker was awarded Best Entrepreneurial Educator of the Year award in 2012 by the Australian Business and Higher Education Round Table for his innovative Internet Marketing subject. GSBE Student Experience assisted in creating a BCom versus Masters case competition as an adjunct to the subject, with highprofile Angel Investors and Venture Capitalists as judges, with the winner receiving start-up capital for their proposed online business.

Students at work: Red Cross executive takes it to the next level Martin Thiele is the inaugural recipient of a not-for-profit scholarship into the Specialist Certificate in Strategic Marketing. He currently works at the Australian Red Cross as Manager, Supporter Acquisition and Development. After completing his first subject of the course Martin tells, “The GSBE learning environment is state of the art. I don’t remember going to school in the past as ever being this fun. “This course gave me a practical toolbox. The frameworks were sophisticated but simple to understand − you could apply them to quick

and dirty thinking on the back of an envelope or use them for a major piece of research.” A unique feature of GSBE Executive education degrees is that all assignments are directly related to the current challenges senior managers are facing in their workplaces. “This course gave me a solid foundation for identifying brand challenges and discussing other brand-related issues with confidence. Crucially, it also gave me tools to assess the strengths, shortfalls and opportunities of my organisation.”
The cross-section of senior managers from a broad range of industries also provides much of the learning opportunity in GSBE Executive education programs. “These programs attract a diverse range of students across a range of commercial and not-for-profit businesses. I really enjoy learning from or drawing out the experience of other professionals from industries as diverse as IT, sports, professional services, recruitment and charities.” Martin will complete his Specialist Certificate in 2013.

CPA Australia University of Melbourne Annual Research Lecture
2012 report Accreditation of the accounting program is integral to our program design and our relationship with the Institute of Chartered Accountants and CPA Australia. We were pleased to confirm our 5-year re-accreditation during 2012. We collaborated with CPA Australia to deliver the long-established CPA Australia University of Melbourne Annual Research Lecture, which marked its 73rd year in 2012. The lecture was held on Monday 15th October and also marked Professor Naomi Soderstrom’s inaugural professorial lecture at the University. Over 300 attendees, including the National President of CPA Australia, Mr John Cahill, joined Professor Soderstrom for this milestone event. The theme was
‘Sustainability Reporting: Past, Present and Trends for the Future’ and focused on environmental disclosure and corporate social responsibility. The lecture series is recognised as the longest-running lecture series at the University of Melbourne, established in 1940 by CPA Australia and the University to promote and stimulate research and encourage original contribution to accounting. In his closing remarks, Victorian President of CPA Australia, Mr Paul McInerney, acknowledged this association, declaring, “CPA Australia is particularly proud of this long standing tradition and delighted with its ongoing partnership with the University of Melbourne.” The comprehensive undergraduate curriculum review (which commenced
in 2011) has made significant progress through the curriculum development phase. The revised curriculum has been introduced incrementally from Semester 2, 2012 and feedback from students on the new material and revised learning style has been very positive. Our International Accounting Study Program is now established as an undergraduate subject. This study program offers students a Summer Semester in Europe or a Winter Semester in the United States, and is run in conjunction with RMIT. Students visit international businesses, regulators, professional offices, universities and government agencies. The program continues to grow in popularity as a result of excellent student feedback.
Accounting Professor elected to the Academy of Social Sciences Australia Professor Margaret Abernethy (Department of Accounting) was elected as a Fellow of the Academy of Social Sciences Australia in recognition of her contribution to the academy.

This workshop brought together researchers in economics, engineering, and the social and
Link between cannabis use and youth suicide Does cannabis use play a causal role in explaining suicidal behavior of youth? A study co-authored by Professor Jenny Williams has investigated this theory using longitudinal data. “While most users of cannabis do not suffer any significant ill effects from its consumption, there is mounting evidence that early onset of cannabis use leads to an increased risk of several adverse outcomes including cannabis dependence, early school leaving, and perhaps psychosis,” reports Professor Williams.
22 Faculty of Business and Economics
Understanding the underlying causes of suicidal behaviors is an important yet understudied area in economics. Suicidal behaviors impose significant economic costs on society. The cost of completed suicides by 10–24 year olds in the US in 2005 was estimated to be $6 billion in medical expenses and lost work alone. Researchers have identified that regular cannabis use is indeed a risk factor for suicidal ideation for males; it is not suicidal ideation that causes cannabis use.
“This is of significant policy interest since it provides clear information for the targeting of youth suicide prevention programs, identifying behaviors and ages that produce large increases in the risk of transitioning into suicidal behavior. Our paper provides credible evidence that the early onset of suicidal ideation is a further adverse outcome of youthful cannabis use for these vulnerable individuals,” explains Professor Williams.

The Policy Providers: A History of the Melbourne Institute
‘Substantial impact’ of Melbourne Institute research
Written by Professor Ross Williams, The Policy Providers: A History of the Melbourne Institute of Applied Economic and Social Research, 1962– 2012 was officially launched as part of the Melbourne Institute’s Economic and Social Outlook Conference on 31 October. The Policy Providers tells how the Institute rose from inauspicious beginnings to achieve national prominence. Through the efforts of its foundation director, Ronald Henderson, within a decade the Institute’s researchers had provided the blueprint for today’s Medicare and the impetus for the national regulation of financial institutions, and had alerted Australians to the existence of significant pockets of poverty.
The ‘Excellence in Innovation for Australia’ (EIA) trial conducted by The Australian Technology Network of Universities (ATN) and Group of Eight Universities found that research conducted by the Melbourne Institute has been instrumental in ensuring that the HILDA Survey is now numbered among the elite panel surveys in the world. Innovative survey design and extraordinary sample retention has led to HILDA data underpinning a broad range of economic and social research projects both nationally and internationally. Influence on Australian policy is evident in tax changes proposed by the Henry Review; the government’s 2011 Paid Parental Leave policy; federal minimum wage decisions; and monetary policy settings.
Long-running household study extended The Melbourne Institute has been overseeing the design and administration of the HILDA Survey on behalf of the Australian Government since 2000. Over that period the HILDA Survey has made the transition into a mature, successful long-running household panel study, one among only a handful around the world that can make this claim. In June, the Department of Families, Housing and Community Services and Indigenous Affairs (FaHCSIA) re-awarded the contract for the Household, Income and Labour Dynamics in Australia (HILDA) survey from 2012–2016 to the Melbourne Institute. Led by Professor Mark Wooden and Associate Professor Roger Wilkins, the HILDA team is to be congratulated on their success as well as for consistently producing absorbing research, offering powerful insight into Australian households over time.

Staff awards and prizes Professor Richard Burkhauser and co-authors of the paper, “A ‘Second Opinion’ on the Economic Health of the American Middle Class,” are the recipients of the 2012 Richard Musgrave Prize, awarded each year for the best article published in the National Tax Journal.
Events and activities We hosted the eighth Economic and Social Outlook conference with The Australian, once again placing the Melbourne Institute in the national spotlight and at the centre of public policy debate. Participants at the conference, ‘Securing the Future: How Australia can Survive in a Volatile World’, concentrated on identifying strategies for Australia to not only cope with, but thrive in, a volatile world. The conference was opened by The University of Melbourne ViceChancellor Professor Glyn Davis. In his response, Paul Kelly, Editor-at-Large for The Australian, noted that the timing of the conference was fortuitous given the recent release of the ‘White Paper on Asia’ and the mid-year budget review. These documents provided the foundation for the conference discussion given the uncertain, unpredictable and weaker global economic environment.
Achievements in 2012 The seventh volume of the Statistical Report of the HILDA survey was released in 2012. Since its creation in 2001 the internationally renowned HILDA Survey continues to inform and enlighten economic and social debate and policy in Australia. In recognition of this, the Melbourne Institute was again awarded the HILDA Survey Contract for another four years. The contract awarded by FaHCSIA covers for a further four waves of HILDA, which would cover data collection in the period 2012 to 2016. Another pioneering piece of research released in 2012 was the initial results of ‘Journeys Home: A longitudinal study of factors affecting housing stability’. ‘Journey’s Home’ is a world-first study tracking the lives of more than 1,600 homeless or vulnerable Australians for

almost two years. In August, The Wave 1 Findings were released to mark the end of National Homeless Persons’ Week. The initial findings, from September to November 2011, confirm the most common reason for first becoming homeless was family breakdown and conflict (62 per cent). The Melbourne Institute won a number of new contracts in 2012. Early in 2012, the Social Policy Research Services contract with the Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations (DEEWR) was renewed for another two years. We were also awarded a large contract from the ASEAN secretariat to assess progress towards the ASEAN economic and social community project ‘Enhancing the ASEAN Community Progress Monitoring System/ACPMS’. Continuing our mission to foster informed discussion and debate about public policy in Australia, the Melbourne Institute hosted a one-day workshop in Canberra during May to coincide with the 10th anniversary of the Treasury’s first ‘Intergenerational Report’. The ‘Intergenerational Report’ has had an important role in shaping the public discourse and policy debate on population ageing in Australia. The 10th anniversary of its release is a fortuitous moment to reflect on its predictions and to consider the road going forward.
2013 outlook We are planning a number of events to continue its tradition of ensuring Australia can chart an informed social and economic course. In 2013, the inaugural MABEL Research Forum will be held. The MABEL longitudinal survey of doctors has become a valuable research resource on medical workforce in Australia. In its fifth year and with a continuing cohort of over 8000 doctors, research using the survey data has already appeared in prestigious national and international journals and provided the basis for policy reports to Health Workforce Australia. The Forum will discuss research using the MABEL data in a form that is accessible to academics, policymakers and other stakeholders. The sixth HILDA Survey Research Conference will also be held in October 2013. In addition to the Melbourne Institute’s quarterly Economic Forums in Canberra, covering a range of topics and featuring leading authorities in their areas of expertise. In 2013, we will also launch The Melbourne Institute Policy Briefs Series. This series presents a discussion of current research undertaken by our staff and will cover topics that relate to current policy issues. The coming year will see commencement of the planning for the ninth Economic and Social Outlook Conference by the Melbourne Institute and The Australian, taking place in 2014.

Our professional staff Professional staff manage the operational services for the Faculty. These services encompass two main functions:
Student and staff services Our students and staff are supported in their activities by a comprehensive range of support services run by dedicated teams of academic and professional staff: • Business & Economics Careers Centre − Providing tailored and discipline specific careers support services to students and engagement opportunities to employer and industry organisations. • CELT (formally TLU) − supporting the delivery of an exceptional curriculum inclusive of diversity and innovation. Our staff work with teachers and students to provide world class learning experiences. • Commerce Student Centre – for BCom students • Graduate School of Business and Economics Student Centre – for graduate students • Research Support Unit – for research staff and students.
The professional service units These units are staffed by industry professionals and support the daily management and administration of the Faculty: • Finance Professional Service Unit • Human Resources Unit • Information Technology
GSBE student centre staff Scott Lacelles, Emily Donoghue and Keshia Jacotine.
Student centre no. 1 for two years in a row The GSBE Student Centre was ranked no. 1 for customer service for the second year in a row in 2012. The Centre came out on top in an exercise that took place over a period of six weeks involving 21 student service points across the University. The exercise involved ‘mystery shoppers’ visiting Student Centres every week to enquire about a range of topics. Staff were evaluated on criteria such as average wait time, greeting skills, manner, environment, enquiry resolution and communication skills. Scott Lascelles, Executive Officer Student Services, commented that this was very much a team effort and reflected the customer service culture of the GSBE. “We prioritise customer service and to be recognised University wide for presenting best practice is something we at the GSBE are very proud and excited about.”
• Marketing and Communications.
Staff research student global mobility, short courses and workplace learning Three professional staff have been recognised as part of the 2012 Professional Staff Development Scholarship. The Scholarships are designed to support staff that demonstrate outstanding performance to undertake projects that advance the administration and management practices within the Faculty and strengthen links with other GO8 or Universitas 21 institutions.

The Commerce Student Centre is examining ‘Increasing the number of low SES students that participate in global mobility programs’; Caitlin Wright of the Marketing and Communications Unit is researching ‘Leveraging short courses in order to build GSBE brand profile and engage with prospective students’; and Sue Elston of the Business & Economics Careers Centre is ‘Measuring the impact and effectiveness of careers services and work integrated learning experiences’.
30 Faculty of Business and Economics
2012 report 2012 was a year where professional staff were recognised for their excellence and achievement, and significant changes were implemented to improve the administrative functions of the Faculty. A new Operational Management Team (OMT) was establised in February 2012 comprising Department Service Managers and Professional Service Unit (PSU) Managers including Finance, HR, Marketing and Communications, Research, Advancement, CELT and postgraduate and undergratuae Student Centres. The Executive Director meets with OMT on a monthly basis to dicuss a range of strategic and operational matters and to exchange information. A number of staff from other parts of the University attend as required to present on topics that are relevant to the group. A revised organisational structure enabled the Human Resources Unit to work more closely with key Faculty stakeholders to better understand their business imperatives and to work through the human resource management implications. Part of this revision included the successful transition of the Faculty’s IT services to the central University’s Information Technology Services (ITS). The Finance and Resources Unit has successfully undergone a structural change, which will enable it to better support the Faculty’s agenda for growth through quality and innovation. It is now
called the Finance Professional Service Unit. In student and staff services the Centre for Learning and Teaching Excellence (formerly the Teaching and Learning Unit) farewelled founding Director, Associate Professor Carol Johnstone and in January, welcomed new Director Associate Professor Beverley Webster. This change heralded a name change and a new strategic direction in developing and implementing the Faculty’s eLearning policy. In 2012, two Commerce Student Centre staff were recognised for excellent customer service by winning the University’s Service Star Award.
2013 outlook A major priority for all units will be working through the implications for the FBE/MBS Collaboration. Taskforce working groups have been set up with members from both FBE and MBS for this purpose. Human Resources will facilitate the development of a workforce plan for the next three to five years. Finance will lead the Faculty through the Oracle system upgrade and related business process improvements. In 2013, the technical transition will continue to migrate IT services to ITS, mainly IT infrastructure. The Faculty’s Service Level and Facilities Management professional services unit was established in 2013 to form a liaison between the Faculty and ITS to ensure

standards for IT Services are maintained within agreed levels. In research support, the research unit will be undergoing a period of review and building in 2013 to ensure that it can more effectively meet the needs of PhD students and academic staff within the Faculty.
Funding for staff innovation in student support Two projects from the Faculty were successful in applying for funding under the Equity Innovation Grant in 2012. Grants are part of the University’s Higher Education Participation and Partnerships Program (HEPPP), which aims to increase the historically poor record of people from low SES backgrounds accessing and participating in higher education. Patricia Migallos from the Marketing and Communications Unit was awarded $50 000 to develop case study workshops to be delivered to Year 10 students in low SES areas. The second project was the Abernethy Scholars Program, launched thanks to a $25 000 award via the Equity Innovation Grant.

Research and research training Research In 2012 Melbourne University maintained its ranking as the only Australian university to be listed in the top-100 in economics & business in the influential Shanghai Jiao Tong Academic Ranking of World Universities. The Faculty is highly regarded internationally for its research achievements as it strives for excellence with a strategy of ‘quality over quantity’. Achievements are evidenced through rankings, success in the international journal publication arena, outstanding Excellence in Research in Australia (ERA) results, and in the Faculty’s ability to win highly competitive research funding. Business and economics disciplines in our Faculty were a standout with a ranking of five for seven out of nine of the discipline groupings. A ‘five’ is the top rank and indicates that there is evidence of outstanding performance above world standard. Based on this ranking exercise Business and Economics at Melbourne is number one in the country. We are also a top performer across the University in terms of the proportion of fives. Seven expert panels examined the benefits
of 162 case studies of research, and outstanding research was highlighted in four case studies within the report, with one of these outstanding case studies being the HILDA survey that is conducted by the Melbourne Institute. In particular the Australian Technology Network of Universities (ATN) report states: ‘Research conducted by the Melbourne Institute has been instrumental in ensuring that the HILDA Survey is now numbered among the elite panel surveys in the world. Innovative survey design and extraordinary sample retention has led to the HILDA data underpinning a broad range of economic and social research projects both nationally and internationally. The outcomes of this research effort have had a substantial impact on Australian policy development, including, for example: tax changes proposed by the Henry Review; the government’s 2011 Paid Parental Leave policy; Federal minimum wage decisions; and informing monetary policy setting.’
questions on the contribution of research to the challenges Australian society and economy faces, this assertion by ATN on HILDA is timely. As shown in Figure 1, our publication output in ISI listed journals – generally considered to include the premier academic journals in the field of Economics and Business – continues to increase over time and is well ahead of that of our Australian counterparts. The Faculty maintained its ranking in one of the most important research rankings, the Shanghai Jiao Tong University ranking. After entering the top-100 in 2010, we maintained that position in 2011 and are still the only Australian university to be ranked in the top-100 and one of only three in the region. The Faculty was also pleased to discover that the latest QS World University rankings by subject named us one of the best in the world and highest in Australia by subject with a ranking of 1 for Accounting and Finance and second for Economics and Econometrics in the Asia–Pacific region.
With the backdrop of public debate on the importance of research and

Research centres, institutes and projects Centre for Accounting and Industry artnerships (CAIP) Located within the Department of Accounting, CAIP provides an important access point for the accounting profession, industry, government and the community to work with researchers and experts in teaching and learning to advance the accounting discipline. Our primary objectives are to develop strong and enduring links between industry, government, community and academia; to identify and develop applied research activities that attract competitive research funding; and to facilitate high level discourse with accounting and business professionals to enhance awareness of the quality of our research. CAIP conducts event programs and a range of industryrelevant research to deliver on these objectives, including research symposia, hosting the Executive-in-Residence program and the Australian Accounting Hall of Fame. The Directors of CAIP are Associate Professor Brad Potter, Professor Colin Ferguson and Professor Stewart Leech.
Achievements in 2012 Our Executive-in-Residence Program (EiRP) is now in its third year. Senior executives across the accounting profession and industry are appointed
as Fellows of the Department for a period of three years, which includes a two-week visit to the Department. The program is presently being considered for adoption in various departments and faculties across the University. The EiRP added three executives to its ranks in 2012: Fiona Campbell, Partner, Ernst & Young; James MacKenzie, Chairman, Mirvac Group; Co-Vice Chairman, Yancoal Limited; Director of Melco Crown Entertainment Limited and Pacific Brands Limited; and Michael Bray, Partner, KPMG (accepted for 2013).
Australian Accounting Hall of Fame The AAHoF, established by the Centre for Accounting and Industry Partnerships (CAIP), celebrates the significant contributions of distinguished accounting practitioners and academics at its annual awards ceremony and dinner held in October. The inductees are further acknowledged on the Hall of Fame honour board with a photographic portrait and citation attesting to the election, which is on permanent display in the Department of Accounting. The Institute of Chartered Accountants Australia and CPA Australia again sponsored the 2012 Awards Dinner, and special guest, Rupert Myer, AO enthralled the audience with his speech.
Three eminent accountants were honoured with membership of Hall of Fame: the late Sir Edwin Nixon from the University of Melbourne, the late Emeritus Professor Russell Mathews of the Australian National University and Emeritus Professor Murray Wells from the University of Sydney. Each was elected to membership of the Hall of Fame on the strength of their contributions to the development of accounting, stretching from the early 1900s to the present day.
Developing a research centre on social investment CAIP is also facilitating the development of a Faculty research centre focusing on social investment. This is a joint initiative between the Department of Accounting and the Department of Management and Marketing and was made possible through the Faculty Strategic Research Initiative scheme. The Centre will facilitate research that will enhance the existing understanding of the nature, implications and consequences of social investment for organisations and governments. The Centre will focus on private sector social investments, but will incorporate government and other organisation roles through direct involvement, or through the development of policy and notions of best practice.

The Centre for Actuarial Studies
Experimental Economics Lab
The Centre for Actuarial Studies is located in the Department of Economics. The Centre offers a complete actuarial program that is fully accredited by the Actuaries Institute. Graduates who obtain marks above prescribed levels in specified subjects receive exemptions from the corresponding exams of the Actuaries Institute or the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries (UK). The Centre teaches undergraduate, honours and masters programs and also offers PhD supervision.
The Experimental Economics Laboratory was officially opened in 2007 to promote the use of experimental methods in economics research and policy making.
The Centre is internationally renowned for its research in actuarial science and financial mathematics. All members of staff are research-active. The Centre hosts regular visits of leading international academics and overseas students and maintains strong links with the actuarial profession in Australia. The Centre’s Director is Professor Daniel Dufresne.
The Economic Theory and Experiments Unit The Department of Economics and the Melbourne Business School jointly operate the Economic Theory and Experiments Unit. Our objectives are to: • Promote research of the highest standard in all areas of economic theory. • Be a focus within Australia for research in economic theory. • Facilitate both national and international affiliations and research linkages. • Facilitate the training of research students, and the exchange of doctoral and postdoctoral students. • Be a focus for external research funding. • Run conferences, workshops and advanced short courses for research students. • Publish occasional monographs and proceedings. The Director of the Unit is Professor Claudio Mezzetti.
34 Faculty of Business and Economics
The laboratory is a state-of-theart facility with 30 fully partitioned workstations and a separate experimenter’s office. The controlled environment allows experimenters to measure the effect of variables of interest while isolating that of others. Experiments thus allow clear causal inference to be made in a way which is often impossible outside the laboratory. In experiments participants face abstract scenarios that do not reveal information about the goals of the study and receive payments for the decisions they make. In 2012, the Experimental Economics Laboratory developed and performed four major experiments on a range of topics including the legitimacy of authority, vaccination incentives and co-ordination games. Two more experiments have been developed during 2012, to be performed in early 2013, including an experiment on social expectations of fairness.
Foundation for Sustainable Economic Development The operations management area of the Department of Management and Marketing hosts the Foundation for Sustainable Economic Development (FSED). The Foundation was established in 2000 with a mission to create and disseminate research that increases awareness and effectiveness of management practices. This awareness will deliver better organisational performance and less wasteful products and processes.
During 2012, staff in the centre have published in leading journals including the Decision Sciences Journal, International Journal of Operations and Production Management, and R&D Management. We have continued to teach the Master of Supply Chain Management. The Director of the Centre is Professor Danny Samson.
Achievements in 2012 A new book was published in April 2012, titled Implementing Strategic Change (Kogan Page, UK). It highlights the large amount of organisational effort that is wasted, and presents a novel method of how to comprehensively identify and eliminate that waste. A project on the ingredients of organisational systematic innovation capability has led to a survey of some 2000 managers, conducted in conjunction with the Australian Institute of Management. Publications will be produced in 2013. The project led to a diagnostic tool that measures the elements of a firm’s innovation capability. The University’s ‘Farms/Rivers/Markets’ project on water research, in which the FSED is responsible for the market aspect, has led to a number of articles about innovation in the use of our water supply system.
Households Research Unit The Households Research Unit is an independently-funded research group within the Department of Economics that investigates the economic structure of households and their interaction with the market economy. Since 1991, the HRU has continued and expanded
The Foundation has produced a number of research papers and commissioned reports, including ‘The Collaborative Games’ in 2001. The Australian Business Foundation funded a significant project that investigated corporate sustainable development.

The HRU has had a leading role in the ARC Learned Academies Special Project, investigating the social consequences on children of an economic recession. We held an all-day seminar in association with the Department of Economics on 5 December 2012. Michael Bittman, Bruce Bradbury, Bob Gregory, Duncan Ironmonger, John Quiggin and Tim Smeeding presented papers. The HRU was commissioned by the Victorian Department of Planning and Community Development to prepare updated estimates of the value of volunteering in Victoria. The Deputy Premier and Minister for Regional and Rural Development, The Hon. Peter Ryan, released the report (authored by Duncan Ironmonger) on 6 December 2012. In 2012, Duncan Ironmonger and Faye Soupourmas’ ‘Output-Based Estimates of US GHP’ paper was accepted and presented to the International Association for Research on Income and Wealth Conference in Boston. Dr Ironmonger presented ‘Introduction to Time Use Data’ at the Workshop on Time Use Data for Health Research at the Population Health Congress in Adelaide on 12 September. He also submitted an invited paper to the Australian Journal of Social Issues on ‘What happened to time use during the GFC?’ and, in conjunction with Peter Brain of the National Institute of Economic and Industry research, prepared the ‘Country Report on Australia’ for the World Project LINK meeting held at the United Nations in New York in October.
The melbourne human resource management research unit The Unit houses researchers with interests in human resource management and industrial relations. They bring perspectives from psychology, economics and sociology, and varying methodological expertise to bear upon important contemporary IR and HR challenges. Established in 1999 within the Department of Management and Marketing, the Unit is a bridge between the academic and business communities, facilitating research on employment issues and disseminating findings to impact practice and policy. The key focus is on human resource management and employment relations in the Asia–Pacific region, North America and Europe. In keeping with its international outlook, the Unit encourages collaborative projects with leading overseas universities and arranges links with international scholars in the fields of human resource management and employment relations. The Unit also collaborates with and consults Australian businesses and government institutions and facilitates research opportunities with the professions, employers, trade unions and government departments. Research findings are disseminated through academic publications, working papers, seminars and conferences. The Director of the Unit is Professor Michelle Brown.
Achievements in 2012 On February 13, 2012, Professor John Budd (University of Minnesota) presented ‘The Thought of Work’ to a seminar jointly hosted by the Centre for Human Resource Management and the Department of Management, Monash University. The Isaac Symposium (a joint venture of the CHRM and the Faculty of Business and Economics at Monash University) was held on February 24 2012: ‘Using the Power of Working Relationships to Achieve Organisational Resilience and Sustainability: A Multi-Stakeholder Approach’. Professor Jody Hoffer Gittell (Brandeis University’s Heller School for Social Policy and Management and Director of the Relational Coordination Research Collaborative), Max Odgen (Foundation for Sustainable Economic Development) and Peter Holland (currently with La Trobe University and previously with Toyota) addressed the symposium. On 16 August 2012, The Hon. Professor Geoffrey Giudice, AO, former president of Fair Work Australia presented the 27th Annual Foenander Lecture, ‘The Fair Work Act: Review and implications’. Centre members participated in a range of academic debates in 2012: Professor Michelle Brown on work intensification: ‘Responses to Work Intensification: Does Generation Matter?’ International Journal of Human Resource Management, 23(17), 3578–3595. Professor Christina Cregan on the psychological contract: ‘Changes in Psychological Contracts during the Global Financial Crisis: The Manager’s Perspective”, International Journal of Human Resource Management, 23(20), 4359–4379 with Metz, Kulik, and Brown. Professor Peter Gahan on employee voice: ‘Voice within Voice: Union Members’ Response to Dissatisfaction with Their Union.’ Industrial Relations, 51(1), 29–56)
In 2012, Dr Ironmonger was appointed by the Australian Bureau of Statistics to its Work, Life and Family Survey Reference Group to advise on forthcoming surveys in these areas. He attended the first meeting of the group in Canberra in January.

The Intellectual Property Research Institute of Australia The Intellectual Property Research Institute of Australia (ipria) was established in 2002. It is a national research centre run by the Faculty of Law, the Faculty of Business and Economics and the Melbourne Business School. ipria’s objectives are to: • Support and generate development of high-level public policy in relation to intellectual property issues. • Optimise the protection, management and exploitation of intellectual property by stakeholders, including research institutions, public and private sector interests. • Help create an informed environment for, and contribute to, ongoing public debate in Australia about intellectual property issues and related matters, including innovation policy and economic growth. ipria’s staff has expertise across the disciplines of law, economics and management, with a particular focus on: • Strategic management of intellectual property • Understanding the effects of copyright, patent and trade mark law • Managing, valuing and accounting for intellectual property • Investigating the international intellectual property system and trade. The Institute operates under the direction of Professor Beth Webster, appointed as Director in July 2008. Professor Webster has published widely on the economics of innovation, intellectual property, as well as more general research on the performance of Australian enterprises. Faculty members associated with ipria include Professors Paul Jensen and Danny Samson, Associate Professor Nisvan Erkal, and Drs Russell Thomson, Alfons Palangkaraya, Rhonda Smith and Gaétan de Rassenfosse. We have an Advisory Board drawn from IP professionals, industry, the wider University and government. Our focus is on research and outreach activities, with our staff producing approximately 40 papers and reports each year.
Achievements in 2012 In 2012, ipria hosted over 36 public events across Australia in all capital cities and also co-hosted the first joint Oxford Intellectual Property Research Centre/IPRIA seminar in London. These events incorporated major interdisciplinary panel discussion on topical intellectual property issues and public seminars featuring speakers from across the globe. In November, ipria, in association with Google Australia, hosted the Competition in the Online Environment conference. In October, we helped organise the 2012 Asia– Pacific Innovation Conference in Seoul and in July presented The Rise of Innovative China: Implications for the Region conference, both in Sydney and Melbourne. We have active partnerships with interstate and international universities and national industry associations. Professor Beth Webster is also the founding president of the Asia–Pacific Innovation Network.
The International Centre for Research in Organisational Discourse, Strategy and Change ICRODSC was launched by four institutional partners in 2001 and has since grown to include: the Universities of Melbourne; Sydney; Cardiff; Lund; McGill; Texas A&M; California; Cambridge; Colorado and Leicester; and Queen Mary at the University of London. The Centre links international researchers interested in developing and applying discourse methods in the study of organisations with the aims of building a critical mass of expertise, facilitating cross-institutional
research, providing a banner for new initiatives, establishing contacts and support for doctoral students and securing resources for workshops and other activities. At the University of Melbourne, the co-directors of the Centre are Professor Cynthia Hardy and Dr Susan Ainsworth.
Achievements in 2012 Susan Ainsworth and Cynthia Hardy started work with Sydney member Leanne Cutcher and Cardiff member Robyn Thomas on their Australian Research Council-funded Discovery Grant, ‘Managing Age in Organizational Context: A Comparative Study of the Meaning of Age among Managers’. The Handbook of Organizational Discourse (eds.) D. Grant, C. Hardy, C. Oswick, & L. Putnam, (London: Sage, 2004) was translated into Japanese in a collaborative effort involving a number of Japanese scholars – led by Professor Masayasu Takahashi (Institute of Organizational Discourse, Strategy and Change at Meiji University, Japan) and Professor Toru Kiyomiya (Organizational Discourse for SocioEconomic Innovation at Seinan Gakuin University, Japan). ICRODSC co-organised the 10th International Conference on Organizational Discourse, held in VU University Amsterdam, July 18–20 2012. ICRODSC held two capacity building workshops for Faculty members in October. The first was ‘The Persuasive Art of Writing Grant Applications’, for doctoral scholars. The second was an ‘Introduction to Research Writing’. Both were led by Dr Wendy Nobel, an applied linguist at ANU, specialising in teaching sound principles of academic writing. Earlier in the year, Cynthia Hardy

ran a publishing workshop for doctoral scholars at ICRODSC institutional partner, Cardiff Business School. A number of Melbourne ICRODSC members joined their Sydney counterparts at the University of Sydney to participate in and give papers at the ICRODSC workshop on Discourse and Strategy-as-Practice at the University of Sydney, 29–30 November 2012. Three Melbourne ICRODSC members – Susan Ainsworth, Joeri Mol and Leisa Sargent – were promoted this year to Associate Professor, Senior Lecturer and Professor respectively.
Macroeconomics Research Unit Located within the Department of Economics, the Macroeconomics Research Unit is a focal point for research and learning in macroeconomics. Its members, staff and PhD students – drawn from the Department and the Melbourne Institute – are concerned with the development of macroeconomic theory, macroeconometrics and macroeconomic policy. We organise a regular macroeconomics workshop, host visitors, and run occasional special workshops and short courses. In 2012, the workshop was coordinated by Dr Kei Kawakami in Semester 1, and Dr Viet Nguyen in Semester 2. Twenty-one speakers gave presentations (including several from
overseas) discussing topics across the macroeconomic research spectrum. Among the visitors to the Unit this year was Professor Dale Mortensen (2010 Nobel laureate, Northwestern University) who gave both a public lecture and a seminar in the macroeconomics workshop. Professor Vance Martin and Associate Professor Kalvinder Shields organised a one-day Real Time Analysis and Forecasting Workshop. The Director of the Macroeconomics Research Unit is Professor Ian King.
Centre for Market Design The Centre for Market Design (CMD) was established in April 2012 and officially launched on 7 June 2012. The CMD is a collaborative undertaking of the Department of Treasury and Finance of Victoria, the Commonwealth Treasury, and the University of Melbourne. The CMD executive is made up of Professor Peter Bardsley (the Centre’s Director), Dr Simon Loertscher (Deputy Director Research) and Mr Gary Stoneham (Department of Treasury and Finance; Deputy Director Policy). Our objective is to build capacity both with Australian universities and governmental departments to use market-based solutions to enhance the efficiency of various allocations problems, which include environmental goods trade, child care allocation, kindergarten slots and human services.
Centre Director Peter Bardsley with Nigel Ray (Federal Treasury) and Vice Chancellor Glyn Davis AC at the launch of the Centre for Market Design.
We aim to: • Make a valuable contribution to public policy. • Commit significant resources to support both fundamental and applied research and research training. • Consolidate the University’s demonstrated research excellence and to build capacity and have the opportunity to show research leadership within Australia and beyond. • Engage in research, capacity building and the application of economic design techniques to public policy, procurement and resource allocation problems.
Achievements in 2012 CMD demonstrated its commitment to capacity building in 2012 with Dr Jun Xiao (from Penn State U), a theorist with an interest in contests and mechanism design, and Dr Leslie Martin (from UC Berkeley), an energy/ environmental economist, taking up positions in the Department of Economics. The Melbourne Energy Institute (MEI) provided support for the appointment of Dr Martin. The Centre contributed $30000 to the Economic Theory and Experimental Economics Group convened by Claudio Mezzetti to support its program of visitors, seminars and workshops in market design. We organised a number of highly successful workshops in 2012 that were well attended by academic researchers, public servants, industry representatives and graduate students alike. The CMD/MEI Energy Economics Workshop was held 30–31 August. Keynote speakers were John Ledyard (Caltech) and Jim Bushnell (Research Director, University of California Energy Institute). A range of Australian academics, industry experts and government policy experts participated in the workshop. Dr David Byrne and Assistant Professor Arvind Magesan hosted two previous workshops that discussed dynamic structural econometric modelling, 28–31 May 2012 (prior to the Centre’s official launch on 7 June).

Melbourne International Business Research Unit The MIBRU began in 1998 as a collaborative venture between the Universities of Melbourne and New South Wales. From 2003, the Unit’s management reverted to the University of Melbourne. The current name was adopted in 2010; the unit had earlier been known as the Australian Centre for International Business (1998– 2007) and the Melbourne Centre for International Business (2007–2010). The mission of MIBRU is to conduct leading edge research in international business, educate future international business leaders and consult with business and government. The Unit’s members study the international aspects of a range of business phenomena, including strategy, human resource management, organisational behaviour, industrial relations and corporate history. Members come from within the Department of Management and Marketing and the Melbourne Business School.
Achievements in 2012 During 2012, MIBRU members were active participants in major conferences, including those hosted by the Academy of Management in Boston; the Academy of International Business in Washington DC; the Strategic Management Society in Prague; The European Group of Organization Studies in Helsinki; the Conference of the Interdisciplinary Network for Group Research in Chicago; the Conference of the Society of Industrial and Organizational Psychology in San Diego; the International Association for Chinese Management Research in Hong Kong; the European International Business Academy in Brighton, UK; the Australia– New Zealand International Business

Academy in Adelaide; and the Australia– New Zealand Academy of Management in Perth. Sofie Schütte, MIBRU member, completed her PhD in 2012. Our regular research seminar series saw presentations from scholars from Germany, China, Singapore, Denmark, the US, Hong Kong, and Australia, as well as several MIBRU members. MIBRU also hosted visitors from a variety of international universities, and MIBRU members visited prominent research institutions in Japan, Singapore, Finland, Austria, Canada, Slovenia, the US and Denmark. MIBRU members also coordinated a well-received set of writing workshops by eminent scholars Professors Anne Huff (Leipzig Graduate School of Management, Germany) and David Whetten (Brigham Young University, USA). The Directors of the Centre are Professor David Merrett, Dr André Sammartino and Dr Tom Osegowitsch.
Microeconometrics Research Unit The Microeconometrics Unit is located within the Department of Economics and is a joint endeavour between the Department of Economics and the Melbourne Institute. The Unit brings together academic staff and research students with an interest in applied and theoretical areas of microeconometrics. Areas of research we currently pursue include labour economics, health economics, immigration, issues relating to social policy and its evaluation, development economics, trade, industrial organisation, consumer expenditure analysis, measurement of inequality and poverty, and measurement of productivity and efficiency. Areas of methodological research we investigate include panel data methods and discrete choice. In addition to holding weekly seminars, the Microeconometrics Unit hosts workshops and symposia. Recent workshops have been held in the areas of health, labour, immigration and microeconometric techniques. We have an active visitors program, hosting both international and local scholars. The Unit also conducts short courses on recent methodological advances.
We acknowledge the financial support of the Department of Economics, the Melbourne Institute of Applied Economic and Social Research, and the Faculty of Business and Economics. The Director of the Centre is Professor Jenny Williams.
Trade and Development Research Unit The Trade and Development Research Unit is located in the Department of Economics. We promote research in the broad fields of development economics and international economics. In addition, we facilitate national and international collaboration by hosting visitors, organising annual workshops, and holding occasional conferences involving other researchers from within and outside Australia. Areas of research we currently pursue include development economics, international trade, international economics, agricultural economics, economic geography, political economy, and health economics. The objectives of the Trade and Development Research Unit are to: • Promote research and facilitate both national and international affiliations in the broad fields of development economics and international economics. • Attract and facilitate the training of research students, and the exchange of doctoral and postdoctoral students. • Develop research grant proposals for funding from ARC and other external sources. • Run conferences and workshops in areas of relevance to research on trade and development economics.
research training We host a vibrant, international community of approximately 100 research students studying for PhD or Masters by research degrees. These students bring diverse cultural backgrounds and professional experience. Domestically, the majority of research graduates take on roles in business, government and other organisations; approximately one third pursue academic careers.
95% of students held Commonwealth and/or generous Faculty scholarships. The Department of Finance and the Department of Accounting both formalized the award of substantial Departmental top-ups above the Faculty-Department base rate of $26,000 to all candidates made offers into those Departments.
Graduate research student recruitment numbers continue to grow, with 128 applications for Graduate Research places received and 24 offers for places made. Departments and the Faculty continue to work to ensure that securing candidates of high quality is the priority recruitment focus.
Enrolments Enrolments stabilized in 2012 across the various programs. 20 candidates commenced in 2012 in Graduate Research programs with another four Doctoral Program in Economics candidates enrolled in the first year (second year of the Master of Economics).

Engagement Business and community The Faculty of Business and Economics continues to build valued relationships with industry and the community through research partnerships, executive education, our Alumni Council, our Business and Economics Board and the Melbourne Foundation for Business and Economics.
Research partnerships Our research partners enjoy unparalleled opportunities for business success by gaining exclusive access to the talent, thought-leadership and world-class reputation of the Faculty. Examples of our collaborations include: Westpac Melbourne Institute Index of Consumer Sentiment, the Centre for Accounting and Industry Partnerships (CAIP), the Global Proxy–Melbourne Institute Shareholder Confidence Index, the Early Years Education Program (EYEP), the Brotherhood of St Laurence–Melbourne Institute Social Exclusion Monitor and the PricewaterhouseCoopers Organisational Agility Study.
Industry partnerships We are fortunate to receive the support of many corporate, government and community organisations. Many of these partnerships are multi-faceted, providing financial support in the form of scholarships and prizes, support through mentoring or participation in business consulting projects and in joint research initiatives. Our industry partners play a critical role in providing our students with access to challenging and rigorous programs – a unique curriculum that recognises that learning is a process that often occurs through experiences beyond the classroom. Through these partnerships our students get hands on experience through participating in business consulting programs, case competitions and internships. The support we receive from our industry partners is vital to growing the Faculty scholarship program; supporting academic excellence through recognition and reward for the best and brightest students regardless of their circumstances. Please see p 64 of the appendices for a list of industry sponsors.
Business and Economics Board and Foundation The Business and Economics Advisory Board provides curriculum guidance and links us with the developments and needs of the business world and beyond. Our board members are prominent leaders from the highest levels of business and public life in Australia. The Melbourne Foundation for Business and Economics facilitates access to the business community, securing a diverse funding base for individual and corporate philanthropy. This support enables the Faculty to fulfill its commitment to widen participation, improves student experience and makes possible a research agenda that seeks to address the issues facing our world.
Business Practicums and Rio Tinto working together Seventy-two GSBE students completed Business Practicums throughout winter 2012, some were hosted by Rio Tinto Alcan in Weipa, situated in the Cape York Peninsula in Far North Queensland. Business Practicums provide our graduate students with real experience in a workplace environment, working on a challenging project within a team.
Tinto Alcan practises corporate social responsibility and how seriously it takes the issue, particularly in its relationships with traditional land owners. Dr Danielle Chmielewski-Raimondo explains that, ‘Thanks to our work with Rio Tinto Alcan in Weipa and
the Ely Committee, we all now have a much better understanding of the issues and difficulties Indigenous communities face and the crucial importance of education as a means of providing Indigenous youth and communities as a whole with a future.”
Rio Tinto has a university wide partnership, which included sponsorship of eight students and two academics – Dr Danielle Chmielewski-Raimondo and Dr Albie Brooks – to assist Rio Tinto Alcan to further enhance their indigenous engagement strategy. Many of our students report that the experience enhances their academic and employability skills while gaining a greater understanding of indigenous issues and true corporate social responsibility. Student feedback emphasises how impressed students were with the way Rio
Students and community elders worked collaboratively through the Practicums.

Student engagement Career mentoring The Career Mentoring Program is one of the outstanding and longest running professional development programs offered in the Faculty, and is now the largest single discipline mentoring program in the country. In 2012, it celebrated its 10th anniversary with ever-increasing popularity and interest from mentors and mentees. Participation in this program is a significant step towards success for undergraduate and graduate students who are matched for 10 months with industry mentors according to their specialisation and professional areas of interest. The Career Mentors come from the private and public sectors, many of them University alumni. These successful mentor–mentee relationships enable students to gain insights into specific industries and begin to develop personal and professional networks.
In 2012, there were more than 150 mentors from large, medium and small organisations including ANZ, Ernst & Young, NAB, J.P. Morgan Chase Bank Berhad, Australia Post, Transurban Group, Cubit Media Research, Telstra, Siemens, DWS, BP Australia, KPMG, Percepta, Terra Firma, the University of Melbourne. These mentors dedicated their time and knowledge to guide nearly 200 students in their transition from study to professional life.
Work-integrated learning In 2012, the number of students taking part in work-integrated learning has grown significantly as both employers and students continue to recognise the value this experience creates to all involved. Large firms selected a healthy number of BCom into their vacation internships, which in many cases are used as a graduate recruitment strategy, and end in an employment offer. For graduate students, the very popular Melbourne and Global Business Practicum subjects offer projects that are exciting and relevant, allowing students to work in interdisciplinary teams, creating value beyond what they could ever produce individually.
These projects ranged from cost analysis to marketing new products, and took students to Melbourne, Beijing, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Weipa in Far North Queensland, Bendigo and Shepparton. All our students were received with very high regard by the hosts, and the experience contributed to students’ professional and employability skills. A new relationship was established with ShineWing, China’s largest domestically owned accounting firm through ShineWing Hall Chadwick in Melbourne, and during the year eight students were offered paid internships in three key locations: Beijing, Shanghai and Chengdu.
Companies from the inside Employers host these events in cooperation with the Careers Centre to engage with FBE students and outline their organisation’s values and the benefits of building a career there. Coles, Bank of Melbourne, PwC, KPMG and Deloitte were amongst the companies who chose this deeper engagement method in 2012.
BCom students kicking goals in tutoring This year our BCom students have entered into a new relationship with the North Melbourne Football Club. Students are acting as volunteer maths tutors to local high school students at The Huddle, North Melbourne’s community outreach arm. Students volunteer up to three hours per week and while sharing their knowledge with the North Melbourne community, have also improved their CVs, gained from networking opportunities and developed leadership, communication and tutoring skills. Our volunteers report they have gained as much from this inspiring program as the students they teach. The Faculty is expanding the program in 2013 with up to 20 BCom students volunteering.
Annual Report 2012 Outlook 2013 45
Global engagement The Faculty of Business and Economics prides itself on its strong commitment to a global outlook in learning and teaching, research and knowledge transfer. Building on the quality of its academic programs and learning facilities, and with the support of a strong alumni network, the Faculty maintained its commitment to recruiting high quality staff and students, and its active engagement with the business community and leading international business and economics schools. The Faculty offers a generous scholarship scheme that aims to recruit high achieving local and international students. In 2012, there were 3141 international students representing 45 nationalities studying across the range of programs offered by the Faculty.
Global partners For a list of our global partners see p 65 of the appendices.
Global student mobility An important part of the Faculty and University global engagement agenda is ensuring that our students have a genuinely international experience, both through the diversity of our cohort and through the opportunity to study overseas. In 2012, almost 120 undergraduate students and 15 graduate students studied on exchange at more than 30 partner universities across the world. Additionally, approximately 40 undergraduate students took advantage of the study abroad program to spend time at a non-partner university. There has been a significant growth in interest in study abroad, particularly for short programs, of which the London School of Economics summer school is by far the most popular. We also welcomed a large group incoming study abroad and exchange students to the Faculty, with almost 200 at undergraduate level and 54 studying at the GSBE.
Student global consulting expands to South America In December 2012, the Global Consulting Project travelled outside Asia for the first time. Five firms in Santiago, Chile hosted 19 BCom students for two weeks. The student teams undertook projects on logistics, market selection, human resource management and corporate social responsibility, mainly within the mining, mining services and energy sectors. The host firms provided extremely positive feedback, with all firms indicating they are keen to host students again in December 2013.
Wish you were here: postcards from abroad Immersing myself in Canadian academic life was truly rewarding; in particular, studying the idiosyncrasies of North American economic and financial systems. Exploring Canadaâ€™s wilderness and culture from the beach on campus to glaciers in the Rockies was unforgettable. Almost every weekend I mixed study and adventurous sightseeing road trips with new friends from my host university. Thanks to the student exchange, I have more confidence with extracurricular programs, and look to become more involved with such endeavours in the future.

It was well and truly the best semester I have ever had. Having had the opportunity to live on campus, make friends from ever corner of the globe and have local housemates was something I could never have expected to be so good. From the little things such as celebrating my first Halloween, to seeing snow for the first time and learning how to ski, Vancouver really became my new home, and Iâ€™m already thinking about how I can go back and visit my Canadian buddies ASAP!

Alumni Engagement The Business and Economics Alumni Council The Faculty’s first Business and Economics Alumni Council was established in late 2010 with the endorsement of the Business and Economics Advisory Board. The Alumni Council comprises a Chair (or Co-Chairs) and 12 members with broad representation from across the alumni community. Three of the 12 available places are allocated to international alumni, from regions with significant alumni communities. A further three members are elected to the council by an online ballot open to all business and economics alumni, conducted every two years.
Structure and governance The Alumni Council operates as an arm of the Business and Economics Advisory Board. In 2012, Mr Angus Barker was appointed by the Dean and the Board as the Chair of the Alumni Council for a two-year term, to take over from the inaugural Co-Chairs, Mr Chris Leptos, AM and The Hon. Jim Short, who both stepped down from their roles on the Council. The Chair of the Alumni Council is an ex-officio member of the Board.

Foundation Dinner, March 2012
The Business and Economics Advisory Board The Business and Economics Advisory Board challenges us to become the leading Business and Economics Faculty and Graduate School in the region and one of the best in the world. It provides curriculum guidance and links us with the developments and needs of the business world and beyond. Board members comprise prominent leaders from the highest levels of business and public life in Australia. Dr Peter Yates continued as Board Chair in 2012. The Board welcomed two new members, The Hon. John Brumby and alumnus Angus Barker. Professor Margaret Abernethy stepped down as Dean and subsequently as a Board member at the end of March, and Professor Paul Kofman was appointed as Dean from 1 May. Professor Nilss Olekalns was appointed as Deputy Dean (Faculty) from 1 July, and Professor Graham Sewell was reappointed to the Board from 1 July.
Report from the Chair In 2012, the Faculty of Business and Economics and the Melbourne Business School Ltd agreed to an historic partnership that would forge closer ties to further strengthen the global competitiveness of research and teaching in business and economics at the University of Melbourne. Under the proposed collaboration, to take effect from 1 May 2013, the Faculty of Business and Economics will be expanded and a new school will be established within the Faculty. This will bring together all the graduate programs of the Faculty’s former Graduate School of Business and Economics together with the MBA and executive education programs previously taught in MBS Ltd. The new graduate school of the Faculty will be called the Melbourne Business School. For the first time in several decades, there will be a sole graduate provider for business and economics within the University of Melbourne. Fellow Business and Economics Advisory Board members Mr Chris Leptos, Mr Tony Burges, and Ms Paula Dwyer, together with our Dean, played a key part in helping to forge the partnership and we owe them many thanks for their time and efforts. As part of the collaboration, Tony Burgess will, in 2013, take up a seat on the Melbourne Business School Board of Directors.
Another focus for the Business and Economics Advisory Board in 2013 was the Faculty’s Asia Strategy, which the Board reviewed and informed. The Asia Strategy articulated the Faculty’s aims with regard to engagement with the region, encompassing not only marketing and recruitment but also research and teaching, student support services, alumni relations and institutional partnerships. The depth of experience in doing business in Asia together with the valuable input from the international members of the Board contributed significantly to its development. Two members stepped down from the Board at the end of 2012, and on behalf of the Business and Economics Advisory Board, I thank The Hon. Jim Short and Ms Patricia Cross for their contribution. The Board looks forward to 2013, a year in which the collaboration of the Faculty of Business and Economics and the MBS Ltd, together with the Asia Strategy, will no doubt secure the University of Melbourne’s position as the premier provider of business and economics education both in the Asia–Pacific region and globally.
