After receiving a Tier One ranking in the CEO Magazine 2018 Global Rankings, RMIT University’s Master of Business Administration (MBA) program is now being offered to students in Hanoi.
Head of RMIT Asia Graduate Centre Associate Professor Victor Kane said that the MBA program provides an opportunity for fresh graduates, as well as mid-career professionals, to broaden their business and management expertise while opening pathways to managerial roles.
“While taking a global outlook, the program’s content remains connected to Vietnam and to Asia, enabling its students to keep up-to-date with trends in the world’s most economically dynamic region,” he said.
Associate Professor Kane added that RMIT’s MBA stands out thanks to its unique delivery approach. “Students will learn the fundamentals of corporate leadership, people management, business consulting, corporate marketing and financial analysis through the ‘authentic learning’ model, which focuses on real-world, practical assignments throughout the curriculum and our strong industry engagement with hundreds of corporate partners,” he said.
“This is achievable thanks to the experienced and full-time academics here at our Vietnam campuses, along with a dedicated group of highly qualified visiting professors from our Melbourne campuses, in course delivery.”
Associate Professor Kane emphasised that each MBA student’s journey begins with the Design Thinking for Business core course, which will transform the way they think about problem-solving and give them confidence to tackle complex business issues.
“The preparation for being a business leader of the future for those who undertake the MBA program is completed through the development of essential soft skills in areas such as teamwork, collaboration, delivering business presentations, and creative problem solving,” he added.
The Graduate Centre head believes students can generate and expand their lifelong relationships both professionally and personally through the program as well as through RMIT's expansive network of alumni.
“MBA students in Hanoi will join a cohort of students that will go through the program in ‘lock-step’, meaning they all will traverse through the program together, course by course, which will build the cohesiveness of the cohort throughout their study experience,” he said.
RMIT University also has a very strong mobility program which provides its students, including postgraduate students, the chance to undertake a short course abroad, go overseas for one or two semesters, and study at one of over 200 partner universities, or transfer permanently to RMIT in Australia.
With a flexible timetable which fits the needs of working students, the two-year MBA program will welcome its first intake at RMIT Vietnam’s Hanoi campus in June 2019.
