Monash is one of the world's top 100 universities. According to the Global Employability Rankings, leaders from the world's most successful companies consistently rate Monash as a preferred university from which to hire graduates.

But while our rankings and reputation mean we can compete with the 'traditional' universities, we don't plan on becoming one. We're a young university, with a proud history of risk-taking and challenging the status quo. We think that gives us the best of both worlds — the qualities and reputation of an old-school university and the openness and ambition of youth.
