International business equips you with the ability to manage, analyse and interpret the complex nature of global organisations.

RMIT’s international business degree provides both breadth and depth of knowledge across a number of business disciplines. 

The International Business (Applied) program at RMIT University enables you to develop an understanding of core business issues relating to financial markets, international trade, and global logistics and supply chain management, and to develop skills in cross-cultural management.

In addition, you will learn how to think critically about managing international business responsibly, and sustainably, about design and entrepreneurship, and gain insights into the institutional roles of business that reveal how the global political economy shapes, and is shaped by, international business organisations. 

You will graduate with the skills to build a successful career across corporate/business sectors, government, third sector, and consultancy in Australia and overseas.


RMIT's aim is for international business graduates to become better global citizens because they have benefited from examining business practices through a global lens, and through a socially responsible business lens. 

You will emerge with an understanding of how various activities within and between organisations and industry sectors are connected.

The roles and industries an international business qualification can lead to include:

  • policy development and advice, especially within an organisation
  • a wide range of trade, and finance related roles
  • business analyst
  • logistics and supply chain management roles, such as advising procurement managers regarding fair trade and ethical sourcing in logistics import/export industries
  • government relations and consultancy, for example, advising on trade-related issues
  • economic research and developing economic policy or regulatory guidelines
  • management consultant
  • business roles relating to corporate social responsibility and sustainability, with respect to business strategy, rankings, ethical ratings and indexes, and improving business consultation, partnerships, and social and environmental impacts.
