Course Handbook

A little different from our other course options, the first year of the Bachelor of International Business is taught in the heart of the CBD at Monash’s city location and second year of the degree is taught on the Monash Caulfield campus.

Whilst at the city location, students engage in active learning. Instead of lectures and tutorials, we utilise on-campus classroom workshops. In this format our classes are highly interactive, which means each student gets more feedback and individual guidance.

As part of this course, all students also complete a trimester studying abroad, or undertake an industry placement. Depending on your electives, you may also gain an accounting accreditation.

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)

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.
