    Testimonial

    "Studying the MIB at RMIT University Vietnam gave me a kick-start in my current career. Achieving an international Master degree within international business placed me in an unique position in the Swedish job market. As I come from Sweden and have been living abroad in the USA, Norway and Spain, I already had a good grasp of business in the European region. Learning in Vietnam further developed my global outlook. At RMIT, I enjoyed working with students from many different countries."
