Course summary

Course description

Focus on international business issues and how to solve them. Put your learning into practice and gain work experience with the client-facing project.

  • Explore how multinational enterprises operate and carry out comparative business analysis
  • Work on the practical consultancy skills necessary to work efficiently in an international business environment
  • Gain a thorough understanding of business analysis and development
  • Learn the key skills for international business consulting, such as outlining international business problems, writing business reports and preparing for interviews
  • The client-facing project with an external organisation allows you to apply your learning to a real business issue, giving you valuable work experience and generating excellent networking opportunities.

Coursework and assessment

Assessment varies depending on the modules chosen. It may include a combination of coursework, group project assessment, presentations, assignments, report, individual essay and examinations.

The summer project is offered if you do not have any unit marks below 40%, and not more than one unit mark between 40-49% in semester 1. If you don't meet these criteria you will be offered a project related to an external client, with no direct contact with them. For those working on group projects, a group report and an individual report will be produced (both 6,000 words).

Alternatively, you may undertake an academic dissertation of 12,000 words.
