Executive Master of Business AdministrationProgram details
Introducing a cutting-edge EMBA that will transform the way you think about senior business leadership.
In a world where disruption is fast becoming the norm, the RMIT EMBA emphasises design thinking, innovation and technology as strategic tools that give you a sustainable advantage.
Our unique, real world approach to creating senior business leaders has earned our EMBA program a prestigious EPAS accreditation - one of the few Australian business schools to do so. EPAS is among a range of global ranking organisations to have rated the RMIT EMBA very highly. Our students demonstrated this capability during a recent win at the International Graduate Competition in Canada.
How you will learn
Your Melbourne-based classes will usually be held in the beautiful heritage-listed Emily McPherson College Building, on the corner of Russell and Victoria streets in the Melbourne CBD. (Melbourne is one of the world’s most liveable cities, and a great place to study an EMBA). Classes may also be held at the award-winning Swanston Academic Building, or at other locations within RMIT's City Campus. You’ll find your student cohort to be a creative, collaborative group.
In additional to our vibrant RMIT campus, you can study part or all of your EMBA online through Open University. Our online learning platform is purpose built to let you study anywhere, anytime, with course and lectures that are easy to follow, discussion boards, online forums, electronic assignment submission and access to our library and business journals.
As an RMIT EMBA student, you will have international opportunities that allow you to combine your studies with a cultural immersion. Opportunities include global intensives in France and Spain, including the Grenoble École de Management, (France) and University of Barcelona (Spain); South East Asia, including RMIT (Vietnam); Robert H. Smith School of Business (USA); Ted Rogers School of Management (Canada); and Aarhus University (Denmark). You can also study the entire program through RMIT’s Vietnam campus.
1.5 years full-time or part-time equivalent.
Depending on your previous studies and experience you could also be eligible for credit towards your program. Credit granted may reduce the amount of study you need to complete.
For more information please see RMIT’s credit transfer and recognition of prior learning policy.
