Never before have organisations faced such disruption from innovation and new technologies. Leaders today must be agile, utilising a wide range of skills in order to navigate the oftentimes turbulent world of business to managing diverse teams. 

An MBA at RMIT broadens your business and management expertise and accelerates your journey to leadership roles. You will learn about corporate leadership, human resource management, business consultancy, corporate marketing, strategic decision making, and financial analysis.

Importantly, you have the ability to tailor your learning journey, spanning from a comprehensive breadth of business knowledge to a deeper, specialised focus on specific areas including leadership and digital transformation. The flexibility to choose majors and minors is a recognition of new market demands, and it encourages future-focused leaders to extend their careers beyond traditional boundaries and create lasting impact in the communities they serve. 

To guide you along your transformational journey, industry professionals (including C-suite managers and industry experts) offer guest lectures across our classes, providing support for Work-Integrated Learning projects (WIL) and mentoring. This allows our students to stay up to date with the latest in technological trends, learn from industry leaders and have the chance to solve real-world problems. 

RMIT classrooms are made up of a collaborative, diverse community. Many of our MBA students find life-long partnerships and friends, who work to both challenge and support one another throughout their careers.

The MBA program consists of 16 courses (192 credit points) as follows: 

  • Five (5) Core courses

Learning, teaching and assessment

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

RMIT provides a facilitated learning approach with business mentoring support, case studies and Work Integrated Learning (WIL) courses that contextualise a student's learning. Students work in teams and thus garner benefits from the additional insight and understanding that come from interactions with classmates.  

RMIT classrooms are made up of individuals who have similar aspirations yet come from a diverse range of disciplinary and personal backgrounds.

Each course in the MBA program consists of 36 hours of class time, plus preparation and assignments. Classes are usually a combination of lectures and tutorials.

Students can choose to study between one and four courses each semester and there is the option of studying at either our Hanoi City or Saigon South campuses.

RMIT’s main delivery modes are tailored to meet the needs of working professionals:

  • Intensive: Four consecutive days, normally Friday to Monday, from 9.00am-6.00pm
  • Split intensive: Two separate weekends during the semester, normally Saturday to Sunday, from 9.00am-6.00pm

Timetable will normally be available four (04) weeks before the start of the semester.

The range of learning outcomes addressed in the program work to improve graduate employability by responding to today’s employer expectations.
