 Our Postgraduate Orientation Program is an
 essential start to your graduate studies at
 Monash. The program is designed to provide
 you with an introduction to the University, your
 Course Director and your fellow students. You
 will receive a detailed overview of the
 expectations of postgraduate studies and the
 services available to help you maximise your
 study experience.
 We also offer our new postgraduate students
 the opportunity to participate in a selection of
 short optional workshops during Orientation
 Week at Caulfield campus. This workshop
 series is streamed into four categories aiming
 to offer something for everyone.
 •	 Academic skills development
 •	 Personal development
 •	 Professional and career development
 •	 Library Workshops for BUSECO
 The workshops are voluntary and although they
 do not offer any credit towards your field of
 study, they provide you the chance to help you
 develop good study habits, meet other new
 postgraduate students in an informal setting,
 and begin to create your own networks, all
 essential elements in giving you a head start
 with your postgraduate studies. We also offer
 a Saturday Workshop program designed for
 working and mature age students.

 Professor Brett Inder
 Head, Department of Econometrics and Business Statistics

 About us
 Monash University has had a long and proud association with the
 disciplines of econometrics and business statistics, dating back to
 the foundation of the (then) Faculty of Economics and Politics in
 1962. The foundation Dean was Professor Don Cochrane, who in
 1949 published with Guy Orcutt a pair of path-breaking articles
 presenting an ingenious method of estimating time series models
 – a method now known to generations of econometrics and
 statistics students as the “Cochrane-Orcutt procedure”. Professor
 Cochrane provided an environment in which econometrics and
 business statistics flourished and in 1968 established Australia’s
 first Chair in Econometrics. This led to the creation of what is now
 the Department of Econometrics and Business Statistics, a
 department that is recognised worldwide for the quality of its
 teaching and research.
 The department offers outstanding graduate coursework
 programs at the Caulfield campus and also outstanding research
 opportunities – at both the Caulfield and Clayton campuses –           Contact details
