Program Overview

The program is intended for students wishing to gain a deeper understanding of international business in Asia Pacific and the management issues confronting small-medium enterprises (SMEs) and multi-national enterprises (MNEs) in the Asia Pacific Region. The program provides practical guidance on how to develop and sustain a competitive advantage and explains the challenges and opportunities for trade growth and collaboration with this fast growing and dynamic region. Competition in international markets is becoming increasingly complex - for this reason, International Business is a subject which is both demanding and requires considerable personal effort. Students will find the program challenging, stimulating as well as rewarding. Not only will the program test the student’s analytical ability and creative thinking but also the ability to present ideas persuasively and to work cooperatively in diverse group situations
