Case Study – Dominic and Esther

Dominic and Esther are in their mid-to-late 30’s. He is a successful engineer and she is a well-paid marketing consultant with an I.T. company in Toronto. They have been married for 12 years and have three children, ages 10, 7, and 5. As a working couple with three young children, they barely have time to evaluate their finances. They have very ambitious goals but have never found the time to map out how they will attain them. They have debts spiraling out of control and only save haphazardly. They are considered high-income earners, which puts them in a higher tax bracket, adding to their financial obligations. They know that they need to start saving for retirement beyond saving for their personal goals but they are overwhelmed and don’t know how to start. They knew they needed help but they didn’t trust their bank for unbiased advice, they reached out to us.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    First, two years at Chennai campus is limited to 20-25 students per class. Every year we plan to recruit 250 to 300 students across all departments giving them the assured transfer to Melbourne campus. However, the final years at the Melbourne campus gives you the multicultural environment with 81,000 students studying across the RMIT.

    Kings Cornerstone will provide fundamental tools and equipment required for the first two years. The first two years at Kings Cornerstone is a solid foundation to advanced learning at RMIT Melbourne. Since the final years are planned in Melbourne, the facilities provided to students are world-class. They access the same materials, tools, technology what is currently used in the industry.

    Take a virtual tour to RMIT manufacturing facility that you have access during the final years at Melbourne. Check out ‘This is Engineering at RMIT’, ‘EMBER – an engineering innovation’ RMIT’s New Academic Street and Telstra Challenge Projects at RMIT.

    Most students enrol in our programs seeking a continuing career in their preferred field. The return on investment is very high if you chose to work in Melbourne, London, Toronto and Dublin when compared to the salaries paid in India. So, we recommend students seeking global career to enrol. If you are looking to return to India or seeking local placements or local jobs, then you don’t need to study at Kings Cornerstone or take study abroad route, there are plenty on good local institutions in India who can help.

    We are looking for a passionate learner willing to study realistically, apply reasoning and ability to learn by doing, but not someone who can memorise and write the whole book without practised knowledge. Hence, your higher secondary results do not make any weight in the selection process, except for your functional abilities. Your entry to our programs depends on your statement of purpose and a personal interview with the academic board but not your higher secondary marks. So plan well for your admission interview and rationalising SOP.
