UPH keeps on innovating, developing graduates with qualities that synergize with the needs of the industry. A good example of this is through the collaborative international program with the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT), which is the leading university located in Australia.
Founded in 1887, RMIT is a multi-sector university with over 87,000 students and 11,000 staffs. RMIT is ranked 250th on the QS World University Rankings and also the 8th in Australia and 30th in East Asia. This has made it one of the best campuses in Australia.
With this background, UPH is keen to work together with RMIT in the international business school dual degree program. In this program, the students will receive the opportunity to achieve a national, as well as an international, degree.
The uniqueness of this program is that the students will be able to learn global knowledge for three and a half years at UPH Lippo Village, which will be followed by the chance to study for one and a half years at RMIT Australia.
Other than this collaborative project, the graduates will also be able to find a job and career in Australia.
In accordance with this, Professor Pauline Stanton, the acting Vice-Chancellor of RMIT University, had stated that she appreciates this partnership at the graduation ceremony of students under the UPH-RMIT’s Joint Degree.
“We believe that those graduating today will get an amazing international career. Through the dual degree program, students will spend time at UPH as well as in Melbourne in order to gain knowledge. This is a good opportunity because students will continue their education with international standards, and also one of the best in the world. Other than that, our education is also focused, preparing ready-to-work graduates in the workforce. We are very focused on the development of the industrial world. We keep on innovating our systems and our way of teaching. RMIT also has world-class professors who are top class researches in their respective fields. Therefore I recommend the students to take this program,” Stanton promoted.
