International Business Specialisation - Bachelor of Business (Honours)

Want to explore issues that cut across economic, political, social and environmental spheres around the world beyond traditional ‘siloed’ disciplines? Research a topic you're passionate about with the International Business specialisation in the Bachelor of Business (Honours).

Help address current global issues with local implications, and expand the knowledge contributing to business success and societal impact across different industries and environments. An international business specialisation will also prepare you to step up as a future business leader and tackle challenges like climate change, global inequality, geopolitical risk and the exploitation of workers in global value chains.

Coming from cross-disciplinary backgrounds, our staff have expertise in traditional international business topics (including internationalisation and firm strategy, international operations management, innovation and entrepreneurship) and non-market strategy areas (including managing political and economic risks, working with the non-profit sector and community stakeholders).
