What will I learn?

Your career in international business

Having staff with international skills is now an organisational imperative. Our degree is focused on producing graduates who can think critically about managing international business responsibly, and sustainably and be equipped with the skills to build a successful career across corporate/business sectors, government, third sector, and consultancy in Australia and overseas.

What you will learn in this degree

You will gain foundation knowledge across several areas of international business in the first half of the degree. You will then develop deeper knowledge and the ability to apply a range of critical perspectives across key areas of business practice and management. In the second half of the degree you can incorporate specialised studies or electives in a different discipline to expand your career options.

In this three-year degree you can choose a second business major, or a minor from another business discipline, a set of international studies courses or a foreign language to suit your career goals.

Examples include foreign languages, international studies, sustainability and environment, geospatial studies, statistics and data management, politics, social justice, gender studies, and conflict mediation.

The degree enables you to develop an understanding of core business issues relating to financial markets, international trade, and global logistics and supply chain management, and to develop skills in cross-cultural management.

In addition, you will learn how to think critically about managing international business responsibly, and sustainably, about design and entrepreneurship, and gain insights into the institutional roles of business that reveal how the global political economy shapes, and is shaped by, international business organisations.
