Understand the complex world of international trade - the exchange of goods and services between countries.
It draws on a complex web of resources in manufacturing, marketing, finance and logistics, and is relevant to both the government and the private sector.
You will gain knowledge in marketing, international trade and economics, business and computer applications, importing, exporting, transport and logistics to effectively compete in all sectors of international business at an operational and middle-management level.
Suited to people currently employed in international business, this program demands sensitivity to different cultures and other personal qualities.
International student visa holders can only study full-time.
