Attendance information

The Master of International Business program is offered full-time and part-time via on-campus and in-person mode at the Nathan campus. Students are required to attend courses on the Nathan campus only except where an elective course is not offered on that campus. Students may then attend the campus where that course is offered pending space availability and subject to Program Director approval.

As a full-time student, you will generally attend 10-15 hours of scheduled classes per week throughout the semester. As a part-time student, you will generally attend 3-6 hours of scheduled classes per week. Classes may be scheduled during the day and evening throughout the week. Sufficient classes will be scheduled from 4pm to accommodate part-time students unavailable to attend classes during the day.

Weekend classes: The Master of International Business program may include some core/elective courses which could be scheduled on Saturdays and Sundays between the hours of 9am and 5pm and it is expected that (if you enrol in these courses) you will be available to attend.

To be classed as a full-time student, you are required to enrol in a minimum number of credit points each semester. This may affect your entitlement to Centrelink benefits. The minimum credit points for full-time enrolment in this program are 30 credit points.

Work-integrated learning

Work-integrated Learning experiences are provided through a number of special purpose internship courses as well as through guest lectures, field trips, case study analysis, problem-solving of industry scenarios and policy analysis and development.

To gain hands-on experience in international markets students can take an internship with an international company or government agency, conduct market research in a target export or investment country, join a multinational company offshore on an internship, or prepare an export marketing plan for a product or service, or a development plan for a new product. Overseas internships and exchange opportunities form an integral part of this program.

My career opportunities

You will find career opportunities in multinational firms, public sector organisations and firms engaged in country risk analysis and international trade and investment.
