Course Handbook

A little different from our other course options, the Bachelor of International Business is taught in the heart of the CBD at Monash’s city location.

While other university programs shut down over summer, you can continue to study, and with three trimesters a year, you’ll complete a three-year Bachelor’s degree in just two years. As part of this course, all students also complete a trimester studying abroad, or undertake an industry placement.

The Bachelor of International Business is a Monash University course, however some functions and/or responsibilities relating to the delivery of the course may be carried out by Monash College Pty Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of Monash University.

“As part of my degree, I’ll be choosing to do the Study Abroad program. I'll be going to China for at least three months. We'll work at Peking University and do an internship in China.” - Andre Coten (Bachelor of International Business)

International students enrolling in a CRICOS-registered course can study no more than one third (33%) of their course by distance and/or online learning. Students must enrol in at least one unit that is not by distance and/or online in each compulsory study period unless the student is completing the last unit of their course.

The course develops through the themes of foundation business knowledge, specialist discipline knowledge, capstone experience, and in addition includes elective study.

Partner with another course

Double degree courses allow you to study towards two different degrees at the same time, and graduate with two separate qualifications. And because a required subject in one course can count as an elective in the other, our double degrees take up to two years less than if you studied for the two degrees separately.
