The Master of International Business program prepares students to succeed in managerial and professional positions in the global economy. The globalisation of the market place requires businesses to be increasingly innovative and competitive. Managers need to understand the complexities of global culture, political, economic, organisational and financial forces and recognise how they can impact on the success of their business.

This course examines the background of globalisation and teaches the management skills and competencies that are necessary in order to effectively operate in a truly global business environment.
