What will I learn?

Cyber-attacks, data fraud, food shortages – these just some of the concerns that can have an impact on global business and policy. With a degree in Global Business and Politics, you’ll have the skills to navigate an increasingly political, global landscape.

You’ll learn how to make crucial business decisions, create strategies to manage complex challenges and learn how to become a future business leader.

You’ll explore how global and domestic politics and public policy shape the decisions and strategies of business and non-profit sectors in society, and how business is conducted within Australia, across borders and around the world.

As you work on real-world case studies, you’ll solve practical problems in business and develop the ways of thinking and negotiation skills you need to forge a career in global business.
