Why choose this course?

International business skills are in high demand. International firms require people with insight into the complexities of global regulations, management of cultural differences, knowledge of different buying preferences, global transport options and ethical behaviours. This course will equip you to build this expertise.

QUT’s international business major is distinguished by an emphasis on industry skills covering trade procedures, logistics, negotiation techniques, languages, regional understanding and offshore business strategies. These skills provide a toolkit. You can take advantage of opportunities to complete study overseas and use your learned skills in industry placements locally.

You will gain required skills and knowledge from a range of business disciplines, including marketing, management, finance, accounting and logistics. You will learn about the international aspects of importing and exporting, communication and negotiation, accounting, logistics and marketing, and develop the strategic know-how required to manage in a global commercial environment.

You will explore real business cases where the planning, decision making and strategic management required for these highly competitive global operations is examined. If you are interested in how business operates in many markets around the world, and would like to open yourself up to career options in global industry, consider study in international business.

The course structure for both full-time and part-time international business students varies depending on whether languages are selected as an option. Alternative course structures are included: one outlines the course structure if no languages are taken, the other outlines the structure for those who wish to undertake a language specialisation. If languages are taken as a specialisation, language units should commence in the first semester of the first year to maintain continuity from earlier pre-QUT language studies.
