Why choose this course?

The world of business is increasingly global, whether it is through the sourcing of goods, selling to international customers, partnering with international companies or just dealing with an increasingly international and intercultural workforce and customer base.

The Bachelor of Business – International is designed to enhance students’ international knowledge and intercultural skills through the embedding of intercultural skills and by requiring you to live and study in an international setting. Whether it is by studying business from a different cultural perspective or by undertaking an intensive cultural immersion program, you will have a set of skills that will take you further.

Employers are looking for graduates with a difference and recent international surveys have shown that more than 50 per cent are looking for employees who can bring an international experience to their job.

Real-world learning

The Bachelor of Business – International is made up of four distinct parts over 32 units:

  1. Nine core business units covering the major functional areas and skills in business

  2. Eight units in your chosen major. Choose a major in one of our nine professional areas:
    Accountancy
    Advertising
    Economics
    Finance
    Human Resource Management
    International Business
    Management
    Marketing
    Public Relations

  3. Eight units of your choice to match the international study option you have chosen

  4. Seven optional units allowing you to complete a second major, minor or extension of your choice.

In the semester before you go overseas, you will study a dedicated intercultural skill development unit, Bridging Cultures – International, with assessment continuing throughout your year overseas. The unit is designed to help you assess your own intercultural development personally, socially and within your chosen business field.

What to expect

The first of its kind in Australia, QUT’s Bachelor of Business – International combines the three-year Bachelor of Business with one year of compulsory international studies. The combination gives you all of the outcomes of the standard degree plus international skills developed during your international study year.

International study year options

You will have a range of options to choose from for your overseas study year, including:

  • Second degree program — If you are interested in getting a second degree from an internationally recognised university then there are a number of options available at:

  1. Aston Business School in England

  2. IESEG School of Management in France

  3. BI Norwegian Business School.

    By completing a set program of study at QUT, and completing one year of study overseas at one of these schools, you can earn degrees from two AACSB and EQUIS accredited schools. Note that places may be limited with some partners.

  • Language and cultural immersion — Are you interested in living or working in China, Japan, Korea, Chile or another country? Why not undertake a year of studies, concentrating on developing language, cultural and business skills relevant to that region.

  • Special programs — Undertake a certificate program at selected partners and you can be awarded a certificate for studies in a related area, or apply to undertake an internship on exchange for credit.

  • Flexible exchange studies — Maybe you just want to spend a year living in a country of interest, or studying something we don’t offer at QUT. You can use this option to complete a year of international study while keeping all of your QUT study options open.
