CONTINUING EXCELLENCE

PROVIDING SUPPORT

CREATING OPPORTUNITIES

We ensure that our graduates across all of the departments within the faculty of business and economics are provided with enriching experiences that will enable them to make meaningful and worthwhile contributions to society. The student society will have a standing committee of members who will maintain our constitution and ensure that the society is representative of PhD students’ needs across the Faculty of Business and Economics. The standing committee will ensure that students are represented in a legitimate and meaningful way. The society aims to achieve this through the following:


  • Through seminars that invite thought leaders, politicians, community leaders, academics and media to discuss events that are relevant and apt. Such events will seek to provide students with opportunities to make connections with people from across the private and public sector.

  • Alongside these topical seminars, our conferences and workshops will provide students at all stages in the PhD with an opportunity to build valuable skills and enduring relationships with the community of scholars.

  • Our website will be a current repository of matters that are relevant to all students across our faculty. Such matters will include opportunities relating to the job market, funding, internships, seminars and upskilling.

End of the semester party 2018

FBE phd student society held an end of semester 1 party at University House, one of the oldest building at the University of Melbourne.

Pyramid workshop

The workshop was conducted by Professor Cynthia Hardy from the Department of Management & Marketing. It is based on the ‘Pyramid Principle’, developed by Barbara Minto* which is a framework that helps individuals to develop argumentation skills and enhances effective writing. Professor Hardy uses the pyramid principle in writing research papers, as a supervisory tool, as a collaborative tool with co-authors, and in developing grant applications. She has given this workshop to several cohorts of doctoral scholars. The workshop has been well received and has proved to be very beneficial to all those who have participated.
