RMIT Vietnam is offering a new postgraduate program designed to build the global business leaders of tomorrow.

The Master of International Business (MIB) joins the suite of postgraduate programs offered by the RMIT Asia Graduate Centre.

Running from Semester 3, 2015 (October) in both Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi, the MIB is designed for graduates seeking or developing their international careers in private, public or not-for-profit organisations.

According to MIB Program Manager Dr Trung Nguyen, the launch of the program arrives at an important time in Vietnam’s economic development.

“It’s a point where new free trade agreements, ongoing mergers and acquisitions and the internationalisation of firms all present challenges and opportunities for local business and foreign direct investments,” Dr Nguyen said.

“In Vietnam, we’re seeing a real demand for professionals with formal training in international business to support the country’s intensive integration into foreign markets.

“Graduates of the MIB will have a competitive edge in both domestic and international job markets, particularly in ASEAN countries when the ASEAN Economic Community becomes a reality later this year,” he said.

With courses delivered in a variety of modes, the MIB is a flexible program that can be completed in one year (full-time) or over two years (part-time) while working.

Students also have the opportunity to enhance their MIB experience through study abroad or exchange at one of RMIT’s partner universities in Denmark, France, Germany or Korea.

Head of the RMIT Asia Graduate Centre Associate Professor Arthur Morgan said the new program sits alongside the University’s existing MBA and Executive MBA as a highly practical, relevant and contextualised program that offers a valuable international learning experience.

“This is a program for forward thinkers and aspiring global leaders who are ready to make their mark on the world,” he said.

Applications are now open for the MIB [http://www.rmit.edu.vn/programs/master-international-business-mib] October 2015 intake.
