What will I learn?

If you have a bachelor’s degree in any field you can study global business at master’s level and develop the skills to undertake an important role in a global business, including providing strategic planning or analysis.

In a world where technology continues to overcome geographic limitations, the Master of Global Business is an increasingly relevant qualification. A Master of Global Business equips you with the skills to become an integral part of an organisation that works with international markets, suppliers and customers.

The Master of Global Business is taught over three 12-week trimesters. Each trimester includes 12 weeks of teaching with exams scheduled in week 13.

All papers are 15 points except for the Research Project in Global Business which is 45 points. Textbooks are included in your course fees.
There are three key elements: Core professional knowledge and skills in international business (90 points), associated business knowledge and skills (45 points), and a research project in global business, a chance to apply the knowledge learned earlier to issues in global business (45 points).
