Take your business career global

Do you aspire to be a leader and decision-maker in a global environment? You could be suited to a career in international business.

Global business is rapidly growing so it’s vital to have cross-cultural skills to learn what you need to know if you are looking to pursue a career in business overseas or within Australia. You could work across any industry given the world is so globalised. Your exposure to different cultures and languages will help you gain a broad world-view that will diversify your thoughts and values ready to work with international organisations.

Murdoch is the only university in Western Australia offering a full bachelor’s degree in international business. This degree has a strong workplace focus that prepares students to enter a professional working environment by learning about a broad range of topics such as: international marketing, management, business in society, international logistics and international business management.

As part of the degree you’ll learn from experts in the business world and work with real international organisations through Work Integrated Learning. The experience gained through this program will help you develop capabilities for a broad range of careers, including: business manager, international marketing manager, import or export advisor, international engagement officer, or foreign affairs advisor.

What’s it like to study International Business at Murdoch

To hear first-hand where an International Business degree could possibly take you in the future, we talked to Michelle Draper, Murdoch international business graduate and WA State Manager of Oporto. Michelle has been able to use her degree to analyse which international markets present an opportunity for Oporto as they continue to grow.

“One of the really important skills I have learnt throughout my degree is the importance of understanding local culture when taking businesses into new markets.”
