Research Degrees
Master of Philosophy
The degree of Master of Philosophy (MPhil) signifies the completion of a course of postgraduate training in research under proper academic supervision, and submission of a thesis that external examiners have declared to be a contribution to knowledge, demonstrating the candidates capacity to carry out independent research. While it is not necessary that an MPhil thesis would make a major contribution to the discipline by way of new knowledge (as a PhD would require), an MPhil thesis would be expected to make a contribution to an existing body of knowledge, by applying, clarifying, critiquing or interpreting that knowledge. The principal component of the MPhil is a thesis of up to 50,000 words, embodying the results of a research project. The thesis is written under direct supervision of a member of the academic staff. Together with a supervisor, each candidate is responsible for developing the research program to be followed and should be designed to take no more than 2 years of full-time equivalent candidature. The Master of Philosophy also includes a coursework component, according to the academic discipline, for those students interested in upgrading to the Doctor of Philosophy. Campus: Berwick, Caulfield, Clayton, Gippsland, Malaysia, Peninsula Duration: 2 years (full-time) Intake: Anytime.

The Master of Business Law is an eight-unit program designed for students who are seeking a postgraduate applied business law qualification. This course is of direct relevance to those involved in professional practice or other advisory roles in the private or government sectors, where knowledge of commercial law and the legal environment is necessary.

Master of Diplomacy and Trade


The Master of Diplomacy and Trade is designed to meet the training and professional development needs of those who are in the fields of international trade, diplomacy, economics, international development, international law and contemporary politics. The program provides formal academic study across a range of disciplines relevant to the needs of organisations operating in the global environment. The program suits the needs of individuals working or seeking to work in the government sector engaged in the implementation and provision of policy advice in the areas of foreign affairs, trade, international development and business related issues. In the private sector, the course is designed for individuals who are operating, or seeking to work, in an international capacity in both the corporate or NGO sector. Career opportunities The program prepares you to further your career in the diplomatic service as well as in international organisations, government departments, NGOs and multinational corporations where an understanding of international relations, politics, economics and trade are essential. The program appeals to individuals who presently work, or intend to work, in the following areas: Government sector Diplomatic, trade, and other departmental staff working in government and involved in the implementation and provision of policy advice in the areas of foreign affairs, trade and economic issues and international development. Non-government organisations (NGOs) Individuals who work in non-government organisations in the area of international development and require a greater insight and understanding of the international environment and its effect on the work they seek to administer. Non-government sector Individuals working in the corporate environment and who are particularly involved in international operations/management where a greater understanding of the international political, economic and trade issues that can potentially affect their business environment is required. Research pathway Students wishing to undertake a research pathway will complete the following units as a part of their elective structure: Introductory management research methods Research report (introduction) Research report.
Course structure

Diplomacy and Trade combines an exploration of theoretical and practical approaches to international trade with a broader discussion on the challenges of policy making, statecraft and international relations. The coursework was often challenging, but entirely manageable. Monash pushes students to grasp concepts and ideas, rather than to memorise and regurgitate facts and that makes for a workload that is as deep and engaging as you want it to be. Discussions with fellow students and faculty, conducted as part of every class offer a chance to really explore ideas and concepts, a privilege one rarely experiences in a large undergraduate environment. The Diplomacy and Trade course not only gave me the tools and credentials I needed to put up a successful candidacy for my current position, but has also proven invaluable in preparing me for the myriad of complex issues that constitute modern foreign affairs. I can heartily and unreservedly recommend MDT, whether you want to build a career or your own understanding of the international sphere.

My masters degree took me out of the comfort zone I had carved for myself over my professional career to date and opened my eyes to some pretty alarming global issues. It was always my intention to make a career change after completing the MIB and I now feel both inspired and better equipped to make that change. Because of the growing diversity in the workplace over the last decade the MIB is hugely relevant to anyone who works in business today, not just those posted overseas or working for a multinational enterprise. It improves your awareness of strategic, economic, legal, financial, ecopolitical and multicultural tensions that exist in both the local and global community. Like anything, what you achieve will be commensurate with what you put in, but I strongly recommend this MIB to anyone interested in questioning the status quo.

A Masters in Applied Econometrics is very well regarded in the job marketplace. I was offered several jobs in banking even during the biggest downturn in memory. Econometrics is an instant indicator of quantitative skills that are highly valued, and quite rare, giving you more freedom and more options. After some time in the workplace I discovered that professionalism in a certain discipline is a big advantage. Being a generalist only gets you so far. I felt my career was drifting, and my previous employer encouraged everyone to professionalise through further study. I chose Monash because of the reputation of the university as a whole, and the Department of Econometrics in particular. I really enjoyed doing the special reading unit with Bill Zhang. The great thing about this unit is you basically set your own topics. Of all the things I learnt during the course, this unit was the most relevant to my current job. The Master of Applied Econometrics really opened up a range of career doors. I certainly wouldnt be living in Singapore and working in my current job without it.

With undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in teaching, language and literacy education, I had been a school principal in the state system for two years prior to undertaking the MBA course. Increasingly, this role requires skills of problem solving, financial acumen, strategising for organisational improvement for the purpose of continuously enhancing student outcomes, capacity to effectively manage resources human, financial, IT, facilities, etc. Further, to eventually consider roles beyond school principalship, a business postgraduate degree seemed attractive, with the potential to broaden my leadership, and in turn, to further my career prospects in the broader field of education. At the outset, my plan was to ensure that I was able to continue my school leadership role and to advance with that, while also maximising my learning from each MBA unit, not to simply gain passes, but to squeeze as much learning as possible out of each subject, applying my new learnings where I could to my school principal role. Now, having completed my MBA, I am better equipped with many more concepts, theories, frameworks and strategies that support and value add to my work as a leader and manager in a large school organisation. In 2010, Kerry was the highest achieving student in the leadership unit.

Further information can be found at: www.monash.edu.au/pubs/handbooks/courses/0046.html Career opportunities Graduates may move into careers in a diverse range of areas within the health sector. These may include: professional practice; research; public health management; management positions within health care facilities; international positions with aid organisations or within developing countries. This degree is recognised as a public health qualification in a number of professional fields. It fulfils the academic coursework requirements of the Australasian Faculty of Public Health Medicine.

Management
Master of Business Administration (MBA)
Consistently placed amongst the top MBA programs in Australia, the Monash MBA offers a new approach to the development of corporate and community leaders. Here, you will learn how to manage, lead and transform organisations but you will do so in a unique way. You will examine and develop your individual leadership and personal capabilities. You will learn to approach business challenges in a holistic way, guided by a professional and ethical framework. Innovative thinking and entrepreneurship will be encouraged and grown. And you will do all this while considering how you can make business better. The Monash MBA has an integrated focus on ethics and sustainability, leadership, negotiation and strategic decision-making with flexible course delivery in a combination of intensive and traditional semester modes. Course Overview During the Monash MBA you will build on your existing management skills and knowledge, readying you to lead and manage whole enterprises. Extending beyond business fundamentals, you will gain expertise in applying your business skills in a variety of settings. Our curriculum includes an integrated focus on ethics and sustainability. Here, you will explore moral issues facing contemporary business leaders and you will consider the impact of value-based decisions in the business world. The Monash MBAs Leadership and Personal Development Program is unique. Fully integrated into the core curriculum, it builds on the academic program seeking to assist you to improve your leadership capabilities and to promote your career. The Monash MBA Leadership and Personal Development Program is based on the belief that empowering MBA students in the behaviour-based areas of leadership and personal development is of equal importance to the business and commercial skills gained from the academic curriculum. Our exclusive corporate project, completed in the final quarter of the course, is an experiential component that offers you the opportunity to apply the qualitative and analytical skills covered in the preceding 12 units of the program in the context of a defined live business problem. This element of the Monash MBA provides both a finishing school for students in the program, and a first-look opportunity at managerial talent for our partner organisations. The corporate project comprises three elements. A consulting skills unit delivered in block mode (one week of classroom delivery) and entails the development of a broad set of consulting-specific skills. The Community Corporate Project - a group project (one week in company) completed in the not-for-profit or community sector. The rationale for this is consistent with the broader aims of the Monash MBA program to develop future leaders, and the recognition that business and its leaders are situated in the wider community and hence have an obligation to that community. The Individual Corporate Project - an individual in company project students complete in the corporate, public or community sector. There is a suite of possible projects that host organisations have nominated, and students are required to spend up to six weeks (part-time or full-time) in the organisation solving a real business problem. Projects can also be completed in your own workplace.

I decided to pursue further study with the dual aim of deepening my knowledge of my chosen profession and enhancing my career prospects. I have recently taken up a new position and I believe that my postgraduate studies gave me the impetus to seek a more challenging job. One of the best things about the role is the variety of the work that comes with working for a global organisation. My masters program gave me a greater awareness of contemporary research in HRM, which has enabled me to better understand the practical challenges faced in the workplace. One of the most positive aspects of the course was the opportunity to learn from the experience of others in the class and to relate these experiences to the topic under discussion. The lecturers encouraged group discussion to challenge our way of thinking. Through the course of the program I have developed sound skills in critical analysis and a broader understanding of business. These skills have given me an edge when it comes to further enhancing and developing my career. To some extent, I surprised myself in attaining good results and being awarded a prize as the highest achieving student. I now believe that I can succeed at anything I put my mind to.

Management
Master of Management
Whether operating in the corporate, government or non-profit sectors, organisations worldwide highly value managers that are able to multi-skill, work well with people, operate across an entire organisation and view the organisation holistically. The Master of Management reflects upon and responds to the external and internal challenges and demands currently faced by managers. Rapid growth in new technologies, intense global competition, the elimination of industry boundaries and the opening of previously closed global markets have characterised the start of the new millennium. As a consequence, the skills necessary to deal with this complex and varied range of factors are necessarily complex and varied themselves. The focus of the Master of Management is directed toward the development of management capabilities in the context of changing and dynamic organisational environments. The program is aimed at career professionals with work experience, who hold an undergraduate degree and who seek to strengthen their career progression, enhance their management knowledge and skills, and therefore improve opportunities for themselves and their organisations. The program is suitable for those who have experience in their field and who occupy or aspire to management positions in business, government, community, service and non-profit organisations. The course is designed to provide you with a comprehensive, intellectually demanding and up-to-date understanding of management concepts. Career opportunities The program prepares you for a wide range of management positions. Many people from backgrounds such as engineering, medicine and finance study management to enable them to move into management roles within their chosen discipline areas. Careful selection of elective units can assist you in making strategic career changes. Research pathway Students wishing to undertake a research pathway will complete the following units as a part of their elective structure: Introductory management research methods Research report (introduction) Research report.

I chose Monash University due to its progressive attitude, the depth of academic and practical knowledge in its programs, and its longstanding reputation as a premier university. I was able to adapt my program to suit my busy lifestyle, taking some units in block mode, one through distance education and others on-campus. Most appealing was the flexibility of assigned assessment tasks, many of which were based on the company I was working in, and presented back to the organisation. I am passionate about the environment and responsible corporate citizenship and undertook a corporate social responsibility elective. I applied the models put forward in the course to my workplace, and Im sure this contributed to the company winning the Corporate Social Responsibility Award for the Premier Regional Business Awards in 2010. One of the best things about being a student at Monash was the ability to build relationships with people from different industries, to learn from one another, and to have easy access to teaching staff when required. On numerous occasions I found myself coming home fired up about the discussions wed had in class, which would lead to further development of some of these themes in the workplace. The motivation of the lecturers was infectious.

Master of Public Policy and Management


Governments worldwide face unprecedented challenges to meet the expectations of governments and communities for better services at lower cost. Continuous improvement and reform are recurring themes for governments throughout the world. This requires the knowledge and skills to understand, manage and adapt to change in fields as diverse as governance, service delivery, management and public enterprise. Global moves towards competitive, flexible and managerial models of public administration force political leaders and managers to face challenges such as sophisticated regulation of privatised utilities, managing contracted services and active engagement with citizens. The Public Policy and Management program will provide you with the analytical and managerial skills to deal effectively with continued pressure for greater responsiveness to government, reduced budgets, more rigorous accountability and improved services. Career opportunities These include a wide range of policy and management positions in the public sector; the private and community sectors which deliver many public services; consulting within Australia; and international consulting, particularly in development assistance programs.

Working in local government with a background in sociology and social research, I felt that learning about policy making and management would help with my career progression. I was encouraged to undertake this course by my employers, who have been very supportive during my studies. I was initially slightly hesitant as I hadnt undertaken any business studies previously, but I quickly found that I really enjoyed the course because what I was learning was really valuable for my personal and professional development. The quality of teaching was excellent - the lecturers were passionate about their subject and gave us every encouragement to do well. My current role involves strategic work, such as the development of policies and plans, providing high level advice, research and assistance around planning for growing communities and an increasing demand for community services. The best thing about this area is that it is fast paced, diverse, challenging and rewarding. I can use all of the skills and knowledge acquired during my postgraduate course to make a difference to the community.

For some years Ive worked in operational management in various Australian manufacturing companies, leading small and large teams in the functional areas of customer service and logistics, as well as being a member of management teams. I decided to undertake a logistics management specialisation in the Master of Marketing to broaden and update my theoretical knowledge base, with a view to transitioning into more strategically focussed management roles. In the interests of maintaining work/life/ study balance, I explored the different types of course delivery particularly block and summer subjects. I found I was able to allocate my time better in concentrated parcels, i.e. block mode, than in traditional weekly lectures and tutorials. Now that Ive nished my degree, I feel that Ive achieved my immediate goals. I draw on what I learnt during my studies every day, whether it is theoretical knowledge in inventory management, or distribution strategies, or business strategy, or how I interact with others and my leadership style. My ideas have been challenged and my mind extended by the diverse range of individuals encountered during the course. I now have a wider network of contacts and Ive also developed some great friendships along the way.

Many courses have no compulsory attendance requirements, but in some units, non-compulsory classes are organised at weekend and vacation schools to supplement and enrich the coursework that is provided off campus. However, for some courses a prescribed amount of attendance is required to complete practical sections of particular units in order to successfully complete the course. Information on the courses and units available off-campus as well as details on admission requirements, application procedures, attendance requirements and student support systems can be found online at www.monash.edu.au/offcampus.
