The Master of International Business/Master International Relations provides a unique opportunity for students to gain two postgraduate awards at Masters level over a two year period. Students will diversify their knowledge and skills by studying across complementary discipline areas, graduating with a clear industry advantage. In particular, graduates will have an appreciation about the integration of strategies, business processes and information system.This program will appeal to those looking for an innovative, research informed and practical program, that is designed to meet the changing needs of business, community and government enterprises. Equipped with current knowledge and practical information system expertise coupled with the ability gain a critical appreciation of the role and practice of supply network management in local and global business. With globalisation, many domestic areas of public policy have come to incorporate an international dimension. The priorities and agendas of domestic politics are increasingly shaped and contextualised by events, pressures and constraints at the regional and global levels. For postgraduate students of international relations, the addition of a public policy component will equip them with the professional knowledge, analytical tools and organisational skills to significantly enhance their graduate outcomes, whether in government, international organisations or domestic/international non-government organisations. For international policy practitioners and AusAID scholarship recipients, the program will develop student's academic skills, professional capacities and knowledge in world affairs, while also teaching best practice in public policy environments.This new program continues the Group's positioning and emphasis on Intenational business, international relations, public policy and Asian engagement. The revised program shifts the balance from academic studies to professional practice and includes a focus on business and policy relevance. Applied knowledge and skills in international business, public policy and administration are essential for graduates, whether targeted toward domestic or foreign policy settings, international organisations and non-government organisations. The double degree program will equip the graduate to analyse and make strategic decisions with an understanding of international business and international relations requirements, in a rapidly expanding and dynamic global environment. The double degree will improve the standing of graduates in the upper management and executive job markets.
