The Master of International Business has been revised for students commencing from 2012.

The International Business program is designed to provide students with the knowledge and skills relevant to the development, strategy, and management of international business organisations; and an understanding of the institutional context for their development, growth, and operation.

The field of international business includes multinational and transnational business activities; strategic and managerial processes that cross national boundaries; joint ventures and strategic alliances, mergers and acquisitions; managing international risk; cross-cultural management; and the interactions of international business organisations with their economic, political and cultural environment.
