A multi-disciplinary team with cutting edge facilities looking to engage with others.
RMIT has evolved to become Australia's largest multi-level post-secondary educational institution, priding itself on the orientation of its approach to applied research and programs that prepare our students to be ready for life and work.
The school began as the Department of Economics and Finance in 1990. In 2005 Marketing joined and it became the School of Economics, Finance and Marketing. As a school we aim to provide practical, relevant, and innovative Economics, Finance and Marketing programs, research, industry training and consulting which graduates, employers, industry and university peers acknowledge as amongst the best available in the international market place.
We offer undergraduate programs in Economics and Finance and in Marketing, postgraduate programs in Finance and in Marketing and higher degrees by research (Masters or PhD) in all three of our disciplines (Economics, Finance and Marketing). Our undergraduate programs are also offered at RMIT Vietnam and through our partnership with The Singapore Institute of Management.
The RTF is the only facility of its size that receives live data from the world’s leading source of intelligent information for businesses and professionals - Thomson Reuters. The courses and programs run in the RTF use market data in real-time trading simulations and technical workshops for multi-asset portfolio and risk analysis, hedging, money market and foreign exchange instruments trading of all of which are conducted at real-time market rates.
RMIT’s Behavioural Business Lab (BBL) brings together researchers from different business related disciplines who share an interest in understanding economic and business issues in terms of individual choice. We actively seek national and international engagement with other researchers, businesses, and public organisations to collaborate on research, apply findings, and shape policy.
