The International Business programs are designed for those who recognise the need and value of developing business skills at a graduate level, and want access to teaching and research that emphasises global and international perspectives. Globalisation and trade liberalisation are forces that cannot be ignored and modern business practitioners will need an understanding to take full advantage of them. The International Business award courses are coursework programs and are taught primarily in the evening.
To be awarded the Graduate Diploma in International Business, students must successfully complete a total of eight units of study (48 credit points), comprising:
