Course details


Become a global player

Gain the knowledge, skills, and abilities critical to contemporary businesses confronted by changes brought about by globalisation.


The global economy has a major impact on our daily lives. The products we use, the financial transactions we undertake and our jobs are all subject to international business decisions. Understanding these impacts allows us to work more effectively in society and in business.

Sought-after skills

The Bachelor of Business (International Business) gives you the skills to manage the complex inter-connected world of international business. You will gain a solid knowledge of the logistical challenges that come from doing business across geographic and political boundaries. Also a firm understanding of how to negotiate and communicate across cultural and linguistic lines.

These skills are sought-after by employers the world over.

A comprehensive qualification

Massey’s international business programme has a comprehensive range of courses. You’ll learn about cross-cultural management, international business strategy, the political economy of international business, regional economic integration and contemporary issues relevant to international business. The programme centres around the Asia-Pacific business environment and its impact on Australasian business organisations.

You’ll also look at the bigger picture - focusing on the impact of the global environment on the functional areas of international business, no matter where you are situated.

Wide range of knowledge

You will be able to take advantage of Massey’s expertise in all areas of business, like small business and innovation, human resource management, communications and marketing. That means you will graduate with a broad knowledge of general business practice and will be prepared for management roles across business.


As an international business graduate you will provide valuable skills to all firms and government agencies involved in international business operations.

Today, almost every large organisation has international operations in some form, and it’s an area of increasing importance. An understanding of this will enhance career opportunities and allow you to interact effectively with other managers from different cultures, or those using different business practices.

Small businesses are also increasingly engaging in international business: exporting, licensing, and negotiating strategic alliances with overseas partners. Studying international business equips you with the keys to best international practice.
