Monash 'Linking to Business' Program


The 2022 Summer Program is now closed. Stay tuned for 2023 Winter Program details.

The Linking to Business Program is a partnership between Council and Monash Business School (MBUS). The program is available to students studying the Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) at the Monash Peninsula campus.

Local businesses are matched with students to offer 'real-world' experience of business operations. Students provide fresh thinking and share their skills with potential employers, giving them confidence to transition into a career after graduation.

It’s a great way to make connections and showcase the diverse career options found in the Frankston region.
