If you’re looking for a business career beyond national borders, you’ll need an internationally recognised qualification that takes a worldview of business. The Master of International Business looks at business from a global perspective covering key areas of trade and finance, economics, accounting, marketing, human resources and people management.

Crossing the spectrum of business and government, you will broaden your understanding of trade development, policy making and planning, and learn the framework to develop a successful international business strategy. Your strategic thinking will incorporate global perspectives, considering the political and cultural climates that impact international business.

Our Master of International Business graduates engage with international markets as leaders of industry, in Australia and across the globe. They pursue roles including export and import managers, government trade officers, international management consultants, and international travel managers.
