What will I learn?

Globalisation has changed the face of business forever. Traditional economic boundaries have all but disappeared meaning business is now conducted across different cultures, political systems, languages and social structures. As a result, individuals who understand the complexities of conducting business on a global scale are in demand.

This prestigious course will equip you with the skills and knowledge you'll need to set up and lead global enterprises. You'll develop a solid understanding of core business disciplines with an international focus so you can take your career around the world.


  • You'll collaborate and network with top students from across Europe, Asia, Middle East and the Americas.
  • You'll have the opportunity to undertake a supervised workplace internship under the guidance of a workplace mentor and obtain academic credit for it.
  • You'll develop your research skills via a research project.
  • You can work towards a double degree by combining this course with the Master of International Communication or the Master of International Relations to expand your knowledge.


This degree is suitable for recent graduates or professionals who wish to update their business knowledge and skills with an international perspective, or for those looking to change career direction.
