Testimonial

“I chose International Business because I wanted to challenge myself with new knowledge in a new field. I was a bit reserved when I first started the program. It was difficult for me to be outspoken in class. Now, I have the confidence to be more expressive and share my ideas. While studying at RMIT, I have worked part time for RMIT Connect and gone on exchange to Bentley University, Boston. I’m grateful for the experiences that RMIT has given me.
