Teaching methods

RMIT Vietnam’s EMBA faculty is comprised of dedicated full-time academics with extensive global experience across the corporate, government and academic sectors.

We provide a facilitated learning approach with business mentoring support, case studies and work- integrated courses that contextualise your learning. You will move through the program as a cohort, work in teams and benefit from the additional insights and understandings that come from interaction with colleagues with senior managerial experience who have similar aspirations but come from a diverse range of disciplinary and personal backgrounds.

The face-to-face component of the EMBA is delivered intensively with ongoing learning support provided in person and online. Each course includes a combination of pre-course preparation, face-to-face course work, and group and/or individual assessment tasks.

Course lecturers based permanently in Vietnam are available for out-of-session support and consultation, and their expertise is complemented by world-class visiting professors.

“RMIT’s EMBA is an excellent choice for employed professionals in Vietnam who would like to pursue quality higher education. Without a doubt it’s the best campus in Vietnam.”
Nguyen Ai Hien
EMBA Alumnus

“As a local small to medium enterprise (SME) manager, I wondered how Vietnamese executives could adapt international business practices as Vietnam moves towards global economic integration. I benefit greatly from my fellow EMBAs who had diverse international business experience and were willing to share their valuable knowledge.  I now have the confidence to do business in a global context.”
