The program consists of 28 taught courses including core business and international business courses, work-integrated learning courses, flexible courses, a one-year compulsory industry placement and a business design project. The business design project in final year consolidates this practical experience, theory and your problem-solving skills.
Flexible courses may be chosen from a business minor that is different from your major area of study, or a minor from another discipline, or from general student electives.
You will do 7 of the compulsory common business core courses plus 1 international business major course.
You will study the final compulsory common business core course, and focus on your major by completing 7 international business courses including studies in global marketing, international human resources, global entrepreneurship, strategic management, global political economy, and culture and business practice in Asia.
The third year involves a compulsory industry placement as part of the Cooperative Education program.
After completing your industry placement, you will return for your final year of study. You will complete courses in your international business major, flexible courses, and the Business Design Project courses - capstone courses that that bring together your theoretical learning from the first two years and your supervised industry placement.
In the Business Design Project courses you will need to produce a brief that outlines a current or potential business issue. You must then reflect on theory, test creative solutions, communicate the issue; and demonstrate your ability to analyse and problem-solve in a coherent manner.
