The Discipline of International Business offers programs designed to provide students with knowledge and skills relevant to the development, strategy and management of international business organizations and the institutional context for their development, growth and operation.
Our programs and research encompass the broad domain of international business studies including: multinational & transnational business activities; strategic & managerial processes that cross national boundaries; joint ventures & strategic alliances; mergers and acquisitions; and the interactions of international business organisations with their economic, political and cultural environments.
The economic, political and social environment of international business also involves research on international risk management & crisis management for business organisations, governments and NGOs; business-government relations, including government incentives & FDI policy for attracting and managing MNEs; and country-specific studies, such as the impact of Japanese MNEs on the Asia-Pacific region, FDI in China, and the contribution of foreign firms to the development of Australia.
