The future of business

Rewrite what's next

The future of business is changing, and so is the Bachelor of Business at RMIT.

We’ve adopted a new agile, non-traditional course structure to equip you with greater hands-on learning opportunities and industry engagement.

The Bachelor of Business and the Bachelor of Business Professional Practice have been designed with and for industry, ensuring that you’ll develop relevant and highly sought-after skills and knowledge.

We’ve removed the traditional course structure focusing on lectures and exams (except where required by accrediting bodies) to concentrate on real-world business problem solving, that allows you to build a portfolio of industry-relevant achievements and transferable experiences. 

At RMIT, you'll have the flexibility to explore everything that the business discipline has to offer. Choose if you want to dive deep into your chosen field or broaden your knowledge across a range of fields, providing you with more options and more opportunities.

Designed for the future, you will develop the cross-disciplinary skills to lead innovation and become a problem solver that can translate sustainable and ethical solutions into commercial outcomes.

RMIT provided a broad range of electives and core subjects that gave me an insight into different areas of accounting. My studies at RMIT led me to my dream job as a forensic consultant at KPMG. I couldn't be happier that this is where I've ended up and I can't wait to see what lies ahead!
