Message from our Deans

It is a privilege to work with world class academics and professional staff, the brightest students, alumni and other stakeholders, that make up the vibrant community of business and economics at the University of Melbourne.

Our reputation and rankings remain strong, yet there is so much more potential to join the world’s top universities in business and economics. We are committed to enhancing our applied research outcomes, expanding our curriculum and bolstering our connections with industry to help shape the world of business and economics in Australia and internationally.

The global economy is becoming increasingly competitive and business and economics education must be responsive to this dynamic environment. Our curriculum is continually informed by research and industry insights to be bold, rigorous and global in outlook.
Producing industry ready graduates and through impactful research, our Faculty informs and advances the policy and practice that underpins the ever evolving business, economic and social environment in which we live.
