Course Overview

The Master of International Business will provide you with the key skills needed to be an effective manager in international business. The core units will provide students with the broad base you need for success in understanding business in a globalised economy. Key units include accounting, finance, economics, ethics, international business, management and strategic planning which underpin contemporary business operations in public, private and not-for-profit sectors.

The Master of International Business gives you the choice of course work, or a combination of course work and research. If you are looking for a pathway into a research Masters or a PhD, you can select a unit on Research Methods and complete a major research project.

Who should take this course

Graduates will be equipped with a broad understanding of core business principles that can be applied in a range of contexts. Graduates will have the necessary background for careers as managers in a range of business contexts, including international business, economic development, finance or the public sector.

The research option is designed as a pathway for higher degree research opportunities. Self-direction, motivation, the capacity for critical thinking and organisation skills are demonstrated by the completion of the research project. Completing the research major demonstrates you have these skills and this can improve the chance of success when applying for increasingly competitive positions in business generally.
