In MBA Seminars, students will elect three MBA Seminars and develop a minor applied project report that combines their knowledge bases. A wide range of seminars will be offered, reflecting the specialist research and practice knowledge of faculty in Monash Business School and other faculties. Students will access cutting-edge research ideas by Monash and visiting professors; engage with leading practitioners and policy-makers; customise their program according to their intellectual and professional interests; and integrate new theory and contemporary practice for deeper insights.

The MBA Seminars will provide faculty with opportunities to work on their areas of specialist research interest with MBA students, practitioners in the field, and project host organisations. The applied project - or minor - will bring a critical, integrative practice dimension to the topic.


The learning goals associated with this unit are to:

  1. develop a depth of knowledge in selected topics
  2. integrate theory and practice in specialist fields of interest
  3. integrate learning in applied projects.
