A Master of Philosophy is one-year programme of original research under supervision, resulting in a thesis. This programme requires the completion of a thesis.
Learn to compete in the global marketplace by understanding how to operate a business in another country, and export to foreign markets such as China and the emerging markets of Asia and the Pacific.
International Management deals with business activities that span the globe, across countries and cultures. New Zealand businesses must learn how to operate in countries that have very different laws, economic systems, technology and cultural values to our own.
In this subject, you will learn about some of the barriers and opportunities facing New Zealand exporters, how to develop strategies for entering and servicing international markets, the benefits of e-commerce technologies, managing international alliances and networks, cross-cultural communication, and some of the key strategies used by companies that operate across national borders.
This subject will prepare you for an exciting range of careers in the commercial sector, particularly in exporting, international management, finance, tourism, and government departments such as New Zealand Trade and Enterprise. Alongside your international management papers, you can also choose to learn or continue to learn a foreign language.
International Management may suit you if you’re culturally sensitive, enjoy overseas travel, and have good communication and language skills (or are willing to learn a language).
