Future business research students

A degree in Research is achieved by undertaking a written research thesis rather than completing a series of course-work. A postgraduate research degree will develop your capacity for independent work, increase your knowledge in your research area, and enhance your analytic and methodology skills.

At RMIT we place particular emphasis on interaction with industry and the application of research to address current business issues and problems. Our work is guided by the latest theoretical and methodological insights but our approach is student focussed. We look forward to welcoming you to the research community at RMIT Business.
