Businesses are pursuing international opportunities as a growth strategy. The global reach of business requires graduates to have an appreciation of cross cultural differences and international management.
The Master of International Business will provide the opportunity for you to acquire skills and knowledge related to international marketing, human resources, law and finance that will enhance your ability to work effectively in the global business environment. International management investigates issues involved in managing across borders and jurisdictions. It examines how multinational enterprises achieve and sustain competitive advantage in a global economy. International management draws on business strategy, other functional areas of management and contextual studies of particular regions and countries.
As a Master of International Business graduate, you can look to operate in the international business sphere or direct your career into positions such as an international marketing executive, international finance executive, business analyst, manager in international business or international public relations executive. This course is relevant if you are planning a career with parent companies having foreign subsidiaries, export-oriented firms or public sector bodies involved in cross-border commercial issues.
