For over 40 years, the College of Business and Law prizes and awards have played a vital role in connecting RMIT graduates and current students with industry. The awards provide students with a valuable career distinction and in turn, provide access to organisations with an appreciation of future talent, a showcase of exceptional skill. Supporters of awards include professional associations, accredited bodies, private entities and memorial awards in honour of valued RMIT staff members.

What it means to win an award

Receiving a Best of Business and Law Award is more than just a proud achievement – it’s a competitive career advantage. High performing students who receive a prize are recognised to be among Melbourne’s most promising business leaders of the future.

Being honoured with an award enhances graduate employability and provides a valuable link to the businesses and professional groups who support the prizes.

College Business and Law Medal

The College Business and Law Medal (previously recognised as the Business Medal) is awarded to a graduate who demonstrates outstanding academic distinction, community leadership and engagement. The prestigious medal and AUD$5,000 cash prize acknowledges the critical link between community engagement and business leadership.
