The College of Business supports a range of programs and events designed to foster innovation and entrepreneurship amongst the university community.
RMIT recognises that students today want more from their careers than just a salary – they also want to contribute positively to the world with specialised skills and knowledge.
Many of the world’s social, environmental and economic issues can be addressed by an entrepreneurial mindset. This means seeing opportunities rather than problems and viewing collaboration and partnership as pathways to success.
Driven by this concept of social enterprise, the College of Business offers students the opportunity to become active and engaged entrepreneurs even as they study.
