The degree provides an opportunity to acquire contemporary knowledge and skills in core business disciplines taking an international focus. The degree promotes both depth and breadth in business studies through a program of core study in international accounting, finance, marketing and trade together with elective units chosen from a range of business disciplines including marketing and information technology. There is also an opportunity to take units in cross-cultural studies, international communications and international relations.
Besides building career relevant skills in business disciplines, graduates will develop skills in innovative thinking, effective written and oral communication and team work.
