What will I learn?

Gain the knowledge, skills, and abilities critical to business success in times of global challenges.

The Bachelor of Business (International Business) gives you the skills to manage the world of international business. You will learn the many challenges that come from doing business with different countries. You’ll understand how to negotiate and communicate across cultural and linguistic barriers.

The global economy has a major impact on our daily lives. The products we use, the financial transactions we undertake and our jobs are all subject to international business decisions. Understanding these impacts allows us to work more effectively in society and in business.

Massey’s international business programme has a comprehensive range of courses. You’ll learn about cross-cultural management, international business strategy, the political economy of international business, regional economic integration and contemporary issues relevant to international business.

The programme centres around the Asia-Pacific business environment and its impact on Australasian business organisations.

You’ll also look at the bigger picture, focusing on the global environment on areas of international business, no matter where you are.

The Bachelor of Business will give you the leadership, communication and critical thinking skills that will make you a sought-after employee. It will give you skills you can use in many different types of businesses, in New Zealand and around the world.
