M C 16 New global business degree ticks all  the boxes In February 2015, Monash University launched a specialist degree, the Bachelor of International Business, that is taught at a new purpose-designed city location – Monash 271 Collins Street. This unique program is taught in a trimester model enabling students to complete a three-year degree in just two years. The Bachelor of International Business is the first two-year, accelerated degree to be offered at Monash University, and has intakes in February, June and October. The program is aimed at students who are interested in experiencing the fast-paced environment of global business. Students develop the academic skills expected of a Monash business graduate, but also gain practical business skills by choosing a 12-week internship or experience international life with a study-abroad option. The course also offers small interactive classes that allow students to express their opinions and develop skills that will help them advance in the business world. Bachelor of International Business program director Errol Muir says: “Because the degree is taught in the city, it means we can get more and more business speakers to come to talk to students about how the subjects they’re studying are applied in real-life.” Current student Eugenie Wong says: “Hearing from professionals helps me to see how what I am studying works in the real world, and provides a link between theory and practice.” Akaash Kumar, a second-trimester student, explains: “I like that studying the Bachelor of International Business means I can finish my degree in just two years and get ahead in my career. The city location is incredible. It’s been easy to make friends, and the lecturers are really supportive.”  find out more about the Bachelor To of International Business visit monash.edu/international-business M C Teachers Time to adjust Volunteering The teachers at Monash College are very friendly and helpful.
