Welcome to the Discipline of International Business. We are a highly regarded group of researchers and teachers in the areas of strategy, entrepreneurship and international business. In the Excellence in Research Australia 2012 assessment the quality of research by our members was ranked as "well above world standard" - the highest possible level. The group is very diverse with members originating from countries such as China, Germany, India, Italy, Philippines, Poland, U.K., and U.S.A. as well as Australia.
The Discipline teaches into coursework programs at both undergraduate and post-graduate level including major contributions to the Master of International Business, Master of Management and Master of Business Administration. There is also an honours program and a significant number of PhD students. Our graduates can be found in management consulting firms, government and non-government organisations, financial institutions and multinational companies.
The Discipline has an active research program and is home to the Entrepreneurship & Innovation Research Group (EIRG) and the Emerging Markets Internationalisation Research Group (EMIRG). The China Business Research Network and the Innovation and Change Research Network are also directed by Professors from the Discipline. Funding for our research is sourced from the Australian Research Council and from industry partners such as Merck & Co.Inc and KPMG. Members of the group publish in the leading international journals such as Journal of International Business Studies, Strategic Management Journal, Journal of World Business, Journal of Business Ethics, Management International Review and Harvard Business Review.
