Description

The Graduate Certificate in International Business program is designed to meet the needs of two groups - international students who wish to undertake business studies with a specific international focus in order to find employment in global markets, and Australian students who wish to expand their business capabilities and to export products to international markets. The program provides a sound knowledge in the core business areas of marketing, finance, economics and human resource management and expands on this knowledge in the context of international trade, government policy and regulations with regard to global business operations.

Students will study contemporary principles and standards of critical reasoning and management and develop the skills to operate effectively in the international business community, with cross-cultural sensitivity and awareness.

Career Opportunities

Managerial in an extensive range of commercial and public sector organisations. For further career information see:http://newcastle.edu.au/students/degrees-to-careers/

Study a Language

All domestic students can now enrol in an undergraduate Diploma in Languages alongside their main degree program. This diploma will enhance proficiency in another language or languages, and will increase international career opportunities. Subject to course availability, this additional program will generally add an extra year to studies, and students will graduate with a Diploma in Languages as well as their other degree. Please note that all language courses are held on campus (face to face) at Callaghan.

International students cannot enrol concurrently in the Diploma in Languages alongside their primary program unless they can complete both programs within the duration of their primary program CoE. For more information please contact the ESOS Student Compliance Unit ESOS@newcastle.edu.au.

Admission Requirements

Applicants must have a recognised Diploma or a recognised Certificate and two years work experience; or ten years work experience; or successfully completed 20 units of postgraduate University of Newcastle studies and two years work experience.

International students must also satisfy the University’s English Language requirements.
