Helen Souness, RMIT Online
RMIT online CEO
Under Helen Souness’ leadership, the RMIT Online has launched two landmark postgraduate programs – Graduate Certificate in Cyber Security and graduate Certificate in Blockchain-Enabled Business, to equip students with the technological skills in these emerging specialisations. The move comes in response to the sudden shift to remote work brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic that has driven demand for cybersecurity and blockchain specialists. The courses, to be delivered in partnership with industry giants IBM, Palo Alto Networks, and Stone & Chalk starting this October, aim to prepare Australian businesses for the fast-evolving and uncertain future of work. Both postgraduate programs will run for nine months and will be fully credentialed by RMIT Online.
