Details

Regardless of the industry, companies that compete for international business must have business strategies that find success. Rules, regulations, government policy and the diversity of cultures and consumer needs and preferences all impact on how companies do business across borders.

International business skills are in high demand. Such skills incorporate ethical approaches, sensitivity and responsiveness to local cultures in new and diverse markets, while at the same time providing the planning, decision making and strategic management these highly competitive operations need.

This program is designed for those seeking to understand the additional complexity of international business compared with domestic business activities. The international business environment is explored across a range of business disciplines, including accounting, finance, logistics, management and marketing.

The Graduate Certificate in Business is an excellent re-introduction to tertiary learning and an opportunity to update skills or, as one-quarter of the Master of Business program, a pathway to higher level study.

 

Career outcomes

The International Business program will give you the expertise and skills to succeed in organisations both in Australia and around the world, including multinational enterprises, smaller firms operating across borders, government agencies and consulting firms that serve international companies.
