The RMIT Asia Graduate Centre has strong links to industry which ensure that our programs and students are closely connected to business, government and corporate sectors. The Centre works closely with industry through our Postgraduate Advisory Board to ensure that our courses are aligned with industry demand and that our graduates are positioned to meet the needs of business. Our recently introduced internship course also works hand in hand with industry to place students in internships which allows our graduates to narrow the gap between study and employment and ensure readiness to hit the ground running in the business world. Complementing these connections, some of our courses, such as Business Consulting, also give students the opportunity to work directly with businesses in finding real world business solutions to real world business problems.
In addition, as a Titanium sponsor, RMIT and the Asia Graduate Centre are also closely involved with the Australian Chamber of Commerce. As part of this close partnership with the Asia Graduate Centre, the Australian Chamber of Commerce offers our EMBA students a discounted annual membership that provides a strong connection between students and a large network of alumni and industry connections. Through this partnership we are also able to facilitate direct engagement with industry such as offering access to site visits and corporate events.
Completing our strong connection to industry is the KPMG - RMIT Centre for Governance. This partnership sees KPMG and RMIT publish joint research, encourage dialogue and debate at networking events and harness the knowledge of students and academics from RMIT. The Centre also taps into KPMG’s international network of member firms to work on specific goal projects.
