Postgraduate Degree

Master of Business Administration in International Business

Acquire global business knowledge and the analytical skills you need to accelerate your career.

International businesses operate in an environment that is increasingly complex due to unprecedented interconnection and integration of the global economy despite national differences. This creates pressures for managers to plan and respond effectively and appropriately to challenges and capitalise on opportunities presented by the environment and its dynamic development.

This course prepares global leaders in understanding developments, issues, and complexities in the field of international business and management. It enables global leaders to gain the knowledge and expertise needed in making effective and responsible decisions in managing global operations sustainably.

This course prepares you to either take on a senior leadership role in an international / multi-national organisation or to start your own business with a global focus. It addresses the political, legal, cultural, and operational issues of operating a global business or entering into new international markets.

This course offers an innovative curriculum design which applies current business theory to contemporary business case studies while using authentic assessment, peer-to-peer learning, and collaboration with industry professionals.
