Studying part of my MBA at RMIT Vietnam was an amazing experience and was a great transition to living and working in Asia. The RMIT Vietnam MBA program provided me with multiple opportunities. It required many hours of study each week but you get the most value from additional activities that require extra effort and time. My MBA was more rewarding through completing an internship and studying abroad. I’m very grateful that RMIT Vietnam gave me these opportunities as they gave me memories and lessons which I will remember forever.
