Graduates of the arts, business, engineering, health, IT and more study this MBA to broaden their career options.
In the final stage of the program, you will complete a company project in the course Business Consulting.

This course provides you with a hands-on learning experience and a direct link to senior members of the Graduate School of Business and Law's partnering organisations. Currently these include Telstra, Prudential Investment Company of Australia (PICA) and Siemens.
The program is supported by a strong advisory board that helps steer curriculum development to ensure that RMIT MBA graduates are work-ready and prepared to take up challenging positions within the rapidly changing landscape of business management. The Program Advisory Board is made up of members from KPMG, BMW, Ethical Investment Services, Greencap, and from boutique consultancy firms such as Advantage Point Business Advisors.
