Welcome from the Dean

Macquarie is a university on the move.  We are taking Macquarie to a new level so that at age 50, it will be among the top eight research universities in Australia and among the top 200 in the world.

A warm welcome to the Faculty of Business & Economics, one of Australia’s largest business and commerce faculties with over 12,000 students from 69 different countries.  Our high quality teaching is consistently recognised in national teaching excellence awards and business/industry prizes.  The expertise and research of our staff influence policy and opinion at local, national and international levels.

A feature of any research led University is a vibrant and enthusiastic community of Ph.D students and the Faculty of Business and Economics has a long history of developing and supporting Ph.D study.  Our approach embodies a range of initiatives to help our students transition to Ph.D study, and to support them during their programme with resources and development opportunities.  Because our Ph.D is based upon publication, students learn first hand the techniques to bring research to the public domain and assert their contribution to scholarship. 

We believe that we offer one of the most supportive and innovative Ph.D programmes in Australia and one which is consistently valued by our Ph.D graduates.
