When business operations cross national borders, international managers have to overcome the challenges of different cultural, social, economic and legal environments.

Successful international managers thrive in such situations, and possess an understanding and appreciation of different ways of doing business and different value sets in different countries.

This specialisation focuses on doing business globally. You’ll have opportunities to work on contemporary real-life case studies aiming for real-life solutions. There are overarching themes of sustainability and responsible business, which are critical for business to succeed in the globalising world.    

A knowledge of this discipline opens up career opportunities in multinational firms, financial institutions, international organisations and government.

This specialisation provides a good overview of international business principles to complement your chosen major. Choose the International Business major if you want international business to be your primary focus.

  • You’ll learn about international business at both micro (organisational) and macro (national and international) levels

Advanced standing

At Curtin, we understand that everyone’s study journey has been different.

You may have already studied some of the units (subjects) listed in your Curtin course, or you may have work experience that matches the degree requirements.

If this applies to you, you can apply for credit for recognised learning (CRL), which means your previous study is recognised and matched against a similar unit in your intended Curtin course.

A successful CRL application exempts you from having to complete certain units within your course and means you could finish your degree in a shorter amount of time.

CRL is also known as recognition of prior learning, advanced standing and credit transfer.
