This program combines studies in applied sciences and business management to prepare graduates for changing roles as they progress through their scientific careers and into management.
Graduates will be knowledgeable in their major field of study and in management and will be able to work in both scientific and management roles.
You will have the technical skills needed to be a practising scientist and the business skills to be an effective manager and leader - a highly attractive combination for employers.
Your management degree will give you a broad knowledge base of business management, and the applied science component allows you to specialise in one of 6 majors allowing you the flexibility to create an individualised degree.
International student visa holders can only study full-time.
RMIT offers a variety of learning and teaching approaches including lectures, seminars, studios, workshops, presentations, group discussions and syndicate work. These are primarily in English.

Ongoing assessment throughout the semester includes examinations, essays, reports, oral classes, presentations, group projects, research projects, laboratory projects and practical assignments.
You’ll have access to a wide range of industrial contacts through the extensive collaborative research carried out in the School.
You’ll undertake work placements in the management stream, and carry out laboratory experiments each year, providing invaluable hands-on skills. In final-year projects, you’ll work on industry-based problems.
A double degree broadens your career options and gives you a competitive edge.
