International Business and Arts - B2038
International Business and Arts is a great combination and a great option if you have a passion for both areas and want to keep your career options open. This double degree enables you to study complementary subjects to further enhance your employability, and develop core skills in global business that can be used in artistic arenas.
This course leads to two separate degrees:
- the Bachelor of International Business, and
- the Bachelor of Arts.
You will gain all the benefits of each degree course and be fully equipped to pursue a career in either field separately or to combine the two in your chosen work.
The Bachelor of International Business is tailor made to not only give you that mindset – but the skills to turn your international insights into a successful career. Here, thinking bigger is just part of thinking about business. You will be challenged to understand the global forces that shape markets and trade around the world. Once you have the skills, you’ll be an asset to any organisation that wants to work smarter in today’s world.
A Bachelor of International Business provides an understanding of the issues affecting international firms, including their strategy, policies and operations. The course will equip you with the key economic, financial, political, legal, managerial and strategic skills required for international business, putting you in a position to support businesses operating in an international economy.
Taking an innovative approach in tackling world issues and fostering a global perspective, with the Bachelor of Arts, you will develop the research skills, advanced discipline knowledge and self reliance to acquire information, assess evidence and convey complex ideas in speech and writing in order to answer complicated questions. You’ll have the scope to choose from over forty areas of study and specialisations, including languages, social studies, communications, politics, human rights, and international relations.
The Bachelor of Arts offers both diversity and focus, and builds informed, skilful and critically aware citizens of the world. The course is built around deeply enriching experiences, and via your elective units, offers you four Professional Futures domains through which to develop your unique graduate profile: Global immersion, Intercultural expertise, Professional experience or Innovation capability.
Your career options will depend on the combination of majors and minors that you choose, and will open up a diverse range of opportunities.
Wherever your choices may lead, a degree in International Business and another in Arts will give you versatile and transferable skills that are relevant to a number of industries. The combination will also give you the skills that employers are looking for, such as communication, teamwork, research, critical thinking and cultural sensitivity - and you'll be able to draw on cross disciplinary perspectives to thrive in a broad range of settings.
