Industry connections

RMIT’s College of Business and Law has a proud history of providing programs that meet the ever-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.

The College works with not-for-profit, NGO's, community organisations as well as global firms, small to medium enterprise and the start-up community - so there are a wide range of industry connections that students can make through our network of partners. 

This embedded industry perspective places our students 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 with 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.
