How can universities remain relevant in the digital economy?
For this group report, students will assess RMIT University and a) describe the contemporary management issues and challenges RMIT University might be facing, b) what they think RMIT University should do to address these contemporary management issues and challenges, and c) why should RMIT University take up these measures.
Each group should consist of 5 students. One group member (<link is hidden> group leader) is responsible for submitting the group assignment(s) to Canvas. All the group members (<link is hidden> names and student IDs) should be listed clearly on the cover page of the assignment.
