RMIT Online Launches Digital Transformation Courses to Upskill Australians in Age of Digital Disruption

RMIT Online today announces the launch of the next offering in its online Short Course portfolio, Digital Transformation, developed with REA Group and Tigerspike. The cluster includes five industry-built and centred courses designed to respond to global demand for hard and soft skills in the digital space, with the portfolio sitting at the nexus of business, design and technology.

Digital disruption has changed the way we work and the way we learn. Fueled by radical developments in digitisation, artificial intelligence and automation, the size of Australia’s digital economy is forecasted to reach $139bn by 2020. More than one in four jobs in Australia are expected to be transformed by emerging disruptive technologies but according to Deloitte’s recent Human Capital Trends report, a 2017 survey of 1500 executives revealed that only 17% of them were familiar with AI.

The university believes the course will appeal to managerial professionals and organisations — across all industries — looking to take a proactive approach to developing the skills necessary to stay relevant in the wake of disruption.

Following the successful launches of iOS App Development with Swift and Developing Blockchain Strategy, the Digital Transformation cluster sees RMIT Online continuing to fulfill its vision of helping Australia’s workforce meet the new norm and foster a ‘community of lifelong learners successfully navigating the world of work’.  These first-of-their-kind, industry-endorsed short courses help executives and professionals future proof their careers in a more accessible and convenient manner.

RMIT Vice Chancellor and President Martin Bean CBE said the course was another great example of how the University was well-positioned to up-skill students in a rapidly changing world.

“Digital disruption is changing the way people study, work and live and many of our students are looking for flexible, targeted and industry-focused learning options that they are able to apply immediately,” he said.

“Through courses like this, we are creating real industry connections and collaboration opportunities to ensure our students have the right skills for the future world of work – wherever they are located and at whatever stage of their career they are in.”

Digital Transformation will take students through the following:

  • Human Centred Design
  • Product Development and Innovation
  • Digital Marketing Fundamentals
  • CX Strategy and Design
  • Digital Delivery with Agile

Each course in the cluster costs $770 and runs for 6 weeks. Students can enrol in the full Digital Transformation program for $3,080, a 20% savings.
