Learning and teaching
The Associate Degree in Business matches the academic standards of the first two years of a bachelor degree, but is taught in smaller groups. You'll learn in classes of typically 25-30 students, allowing a close and supportive relationship with your teachers.
The learning sessions will include subject analysis, discussions, tutorial exercises and assignment support.
Assessments include case studies, essays, reports, presentations, group projects, research projects and practical assignments.
You will be able to include all projects and assignments undertaken with external partner companies on your resume, so that prospective employers understand that you have had relevant practical business experience and the opportunity to develop those critical thinking skills which will prepare you for life and work.
Learning at RMIT
The types of classes you have will depend on the course you’re studying. Classes are offered in various formats designed to provide meaningful engagement with staff, industry and peers and provide for access and use of spaces where learning can be applied and active, including an array of specialised equipment.
Most RMIT courses do not include passive large-scale classes such as lectures, instead the content traditionally provided in lectures is made available online. This may be in the form of readings, videos or other on-demand learning materials. This content will also support the basis of interactive learning that takes place in on-campus classes.
