Quotes from current recipients:
"RMIT's Executive MBA is extremely applicable in my professional work because it is so practice-oriented. The practicality of the studies, the mixed learning modes, the course materials and the real-world examples and case studies of effective leaders has meant that I am able to apply my learnings in my professional work."
"Some of the most useful, interesting learnings I gain in my EMBA come from working with, and observing and participating with my colleagues in action. It is wonderful to be exposed to collaboration opportunities with a wide range of experienced professionals from diverse personal and professional backgrounds. I find there is a high level of enthusiasm and commitment amongst colleagues, which makes it a delight to work and learn together in this energised environment."
"The scholarship has allowed me to focus more entirely on my studies without the concern of the cost of it. It means I can stay true to my values in the non-profit health sector without a financial burden. It has been absolutely critical in being able to maintain studies and positive living arrangements, especially in COVID lockdown. I have not had to worry about my finances through all of this time, or increase debt. I'm not sure there is anything, short of lottery, that could have facilitated my studies as much as this scholarship has. I am so proud to be a recipient and I'm so proud of my results so far."
The scholarship application process is highly competitive with a limited number of scholarships available. Unfortunately, not all eligible applicants will receive one.
Only successful candidates will be notified via email to their RMIT student account.
