          From a student...

          Taking the MBA at RMIT helped me identify my strengths and weaknesses, and therefore improve my leadership skills. The courses provide the necessary knowledge through the case studies, and practice lessons, and so students gain the most useful information, techniques and skills to apply to their daily work as a manager.
