RMIT Online MBA Course Overview
The globally recognised, accelerated RMIT online MBA program leverages RMIT’s strengths in technology, innovation and design without compromising on traditional MBA areas of study such as leadership, strategy and cross-functional management. It offers electives and concentrations covering the latest advances in technology, digital trends, design thinking methodologies and authentic leadership informed by leading industry experts and world-class academics.
The RMIT online MBA isn’t just about thinking different, it’s about making different happen. In an increasingly uncertain world that is challenged by the complexities of Industry 4.0, the program encourages you to learn how to think on your feet and act on your thoughts. RMIT’s online MBA does not meet Australian student visa requirements and is not available to international students.
This program starts with a series of courses that introduce key business concepts, before building towards more complex projects that will allow you to showcase your understanding of corporate strategy and design-led thinking.
Students can complete an RMIT MBA program in two years part-time intensive mode.
The program is completed via a highly social, online learning platform that not only gives you access to current, industry-informed content but also connects you with academics and students across time zones.
