About us

RMIT is a multi-sector university of technology, design and enterprise with more than 91,000 students and 11,000 staff globally. RMIT offers postgraduate, undergraduate, vocational education and online programs to provide students with a variety of work-relevant pathways.

Our purpose is to offer life-changing experiences for our students, and to help shape the world with research, innovation, teaching and industry engagement. With strong industry connections forged over 130 years, collaboration with industry remains integral to RMIT’s leadership in education, applied and innovative research, and to the development of highly skilled, globally-focused graduates.

The Graduate School of Business & Law (GSBL) commenced operations in January 2010. In July 2010 the GSBL moved to the new Emily McPherson premises, opening an exciting new phase in RMIT’s development of professional programs for the experienced, post-graduate business market. RMIT has one of the longest standing MBA programs in Australia, commencing the program in the mid-1970s. The GSBL now offers MBAs for Executive, Graduate and OUA students and corporate students. These programs are now delivered to over 1,000 students in the Melbourne and Vietnam campuses as well as online. The GSBL offers both MBA and Executive MBA programs. The Executive MBA program is designed for students with significant work experience. It is also offered in on-line mode in partnership with OUA. The MBA program is for more recent graduates who may have less work experience. It is offered in full- and part-time modes with the majority of students studying full-time. The MBA attracts a large number of international students.
