There is increasing demand for skilled managers who can do business on an international scale, and recent investment in Vietnam put us at the forefront of economic growth in our region. This is reflected in the MIB, and our partnerships with industry also provides hands-on experience and ensures the program content is relevant to current issues, trends, and innovations.

Our lecturers are highly qualified and have broad experience of global issues, and you will experience practical learning that equips you with the knowledge and skills to work across borders.

    Teaching methods

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

    Our facilitated learning approach incorporates business mentoring support, case studies and work- integrated courses that contextualise your learning.

    Most MIB courses are delivered in intensive mode, which means you attend face-to-face classes in one four day block. Usually held Friday to Monday from 8.30am-5.30pm, intensive courses require advance study preparation with ongoing learning support provided in person and online at the completion of the face-to-face component.

    Some courses are delivered across week days and evenings in three-hour blocks that include a combination of lectures and tutorials. These classes run for the duration of a 12-week semester.

    Assessment

    Ongoing assessment throughout the program includes assignments, research, case study analysis, group presentations and examinations.
