Mutually beneficial partnerships with industry underpin the College of Business’ leadership in applied education and research.
We invite you to explore how we can work together to deliver significant outcomes for your business. We engage with business, government, the not-for-profit sector and the community in a variety of ways including:
A crucial part of RMIT’s commitment to work-relevant education is delivered through Work-Integrated Learning (WIL) and paid student placements in industry are an important component of WIL. Other WIL opportunities include voluntary placements, industry based projects, simulated work experiences and the Business Plan Competition.
Executive Education works with industry and government organisations at the local and international level to provide a wide range of training, professional development and consultancy services.
The emphasis is on designing and delivering programs and short courses which align with the learning and knowledge needs of the client group. Practicality is an essential focus and our programs and courses combine a structured mix of lectures, presentations by experts in the field, group and individual activities and site visits.
The College of Business supports a range of programs and events designed to foster innovation and entrepreneurship amongst the university community. These include the Business Plan Competition, NEIS and Entrepreneur in Residence program.
The College of Business is heavily engaged in both knowledge creation (through research) and knowledge dissemination (through teaching and work integrated learning). We have a special focus in pursuing rigorous research that provides solutions to industry and society at large and which promotes social, cultural and economic benefits.
