RMIT Vietnam is committed to working with its partners to support the national priorities of Vietnam’s Government and demands of industry to deliver impact for Vietnam and the region.  

RMIT Deputy Vice-Chancellor of the College of Design and Social Context and Vice-President Professor Tim Marshall said “this is an exciting time for RMIT University to be working closely with Vietnamese industry and government to help shape the skills and knowledge of tomorrow”.
