With programs offered in Vietnam and significant teaching partnerships in China, Hong Kong, Malaysia and Singapore, the College of Business attracts approximately 23,000 students in the Asia-Pacific region.
The College continues to provide industry responsive programs relevant to both students and the future needs of employers with a wide range of award programs, executive education and training that can be tailored for the workplace. Alongside established programs covering international management education, financial markets, and international accounting and law, specialist programs such as entrepreneurship and logistics are offered. This breadth of programs offered is possible through collaborative and cooperative teaching and research and many Business students may find that they will be studying alongside peers from a variety of business disciplines throughout their time at RMIT.
RMIT College of Business has a proud history of providing programs that meet the evolving needs of students and industry.
All of our programs incorporate Work Integrated Learning (WIL) which means that our students are work-ready by the time they graduate.
This embedded industry perspective places them ahead of their competitors in the job market, and provides an invaluable opportunity to start developing social and professional networks during their RMIT studies.
Our teaching staff deliver programs responsive to the latest industry requirements and are actively engaged in research and consultation to business and government.
We also connect with the local Victorian community, businesses, research centres, governments and secondary schools in Australia to run projects, provide services, host conferences and provide networking opportunities for business leaders and alumni.
The College of Business acknowledges academic excellence by awarding more than 70 prizes annually for outstanding performance in its courses and programs. The scale of this activity is made possible by the generous sponsorship of more than 60 companies, professional bodies and private individuals.
Student prizes are awarded within each academic school and at College level.
The College of Business has links with overseas partner organisations including other leading universities and business schools, and companies. With campuses in Vietnam and significant teaching partnerships in China, Hong Kong, Malaysia, and Singapore, the College has a strong presence in the Asia-Pacific region. In addition, students can study an RMIT Business Program through Open Universities Australia, regional Victoria, or at our various locations in Melbourne.
After many years of offshore activity RMIT is highly experienced in international education. We undertake joint research with partners in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, China, Japan, Hong Kong, Vietnam, the US, Canada and Europe.
Staff and students have the opportunity to develop discipline knowledge and gain cultural and professional insights through an extensive range of international exchanges, study abroad choices, project work and work experience.
