Business Research Showcase 2019

Navigating Complexity


RMIT University, Room 10, Level 11, Building 80, 445 Swanston Street, Melbourne VIC 3000, Australia


About the event

RMIT University’s College of Business is proud to host its annual Business Research Showcase. Celebrating the College’s excellent research, the 2.5 day schedule features panel discussions which aim to stimulate intellectual discourse and engage an audience of academics, students and industry partners.
The theme in 2019 is Navigating Complexity. Digital transformation, the networked society, social media, the platform economy, globalisation, technological change, and the political upheavals of the last decade mean that we, as citizens, workers and members of our communities, face a complex and uncertain environment.
We have invited expert panellists from academia and industry to discuss these themes as part of our exciting program. The Showcase will also celebrate the research endeavours of our PhD candidates with poster and photography competitions. Keep an eye out for the announcement of our two keynote speakers in due course.
This event has much to offer academics, students and our industry partners alike. To register please click the button below. We look forward to seeing you there!
