The Faculty of Business and Economics at Monash University, Melbourne is the largest university faculty in Australia.[citation needed] It is home to over 16,000 students and staff.[1] In teaching, it offers undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate degrees.

The Faculty's teaching and research are spread across most of Monash University's campuses, including Clayton, Caulfield, Malaysia, Gippsland, Peninsula, Berwick, South Africa and Prato. The Interim Dean of the Faculty is Professor Rob Brooks.


The current Faculty structure is the result of the amalgamation of the Monash University Faculty of Economics, based at the University's Clayton Campus, and the David Syme School of Business, based at what is now the University's Caulfield Campus. Traditionally, the Clayton Campus was strong in economic research, but underperformed in industry training. Conversely, the David Syme School was one of Australia's leading business schools in professional training, but lacked a strong research base. The early 1990s merger, though opposed by some at the time, was seen as a way to bring together these parallel areas of expertise.

MBA program[edit]

Monash is one of only three MBA programs in Australia to have accreditation by the London-based Association of MBAs (AMBA).[2]
