International Business, Strategy and Entrepreneurship department

The International Business, Strategy and Entrepreneurship department is part of the AUT Business School.

We examine business activities that cross national boundaries, and the business and public policy issues that affect decision makers. Our staff have made significant contributions to international business through the publication of books and articles, and  consultancy work for government, international agencies and business firms.

Undergraduate international business, strategy and entrepreneurship will give you a solid grounding in this area.
