Our majors

International Business

The world economy is increasingly moving toward a global economy. It takes a special set of skills to engage the international business community, and nobody understands this better than our experts. By opening the door to information and ideas from both home and abroad, our department is helping to develop specifically skilled graduates and create more opportunities for Australian businesses to successfully engage with foreign markets. We’re also teaching our graduates to think creatively, differently and innovate so they are prepared to become modern business leaders in an ever-changing world.

Asian Engagement

Asia accounts for 60 per cent of the world's population and is rapidly developing both socially and economically. Australia is recognised as a crucial player in Asia with our integration into this region being vital to our continued prosperity. With deep knowledge of Asia, you'll position yourself as a sought-after graduate with a global perspective. You'll develop expertise and an in-depth understanding of the region's political, economic, and cultural environment and be prepared to take advantage of new and exciting opportunities working in Australia and abroad as an expert on Asian affairs.

Asian Business

Asia is a vibrant and significant part of the global economy in the 21st century and a major trading partner with Australia. Asia is emerging as the world’s largest producer and consumer of goods and is populated by dynamic and complex societies. A deep understanding of Asian history, culture, politics and business relations is required to successfully engage throughout Asia – in government, commercial and not for profit environments.

Logistics & Supply Chain Management

The world we live in depends on logistics and supply chain managers to make products available to us. These managers are the ultimate back-room power players moving millions of dollars of product every day. Logistics and supply chain managers are the air traffic controllers of the global market and can give a company the advantage it needs to surge ahead of its competition. If any part of the supply network fails, then a business can find itself with a big problem. That's why good logistics and supply chain managers are such valued professionals.

Innovation & Entrepreneurship

Choosing to study innovation and entrepreneurship will teach you how to be an effective, innovative, and dynamic manager and you'll graduate with the skills, knowledge and confidence required to develop and manage a successful business. Studying Innovation and Entrepreneurship at Griffith gives you the strategic know-how to start up, operate and sell new business ventures. You will learn how to innovate and create a dynamic career moving from employment to self-employment and back again.

Business Analytics

Business analytics are more important than ever including in financial services, government, and public services, and to consumers. You will learn from world-class experts across the business and information and communication technology disciplines, who have strong linkages with industry and government, so you gain practical experience of skills you will use in the workplace. You will have an opportunity to complete an internship so you’ll graduate with experience of finding solutions to the challenges employers are facing today.

Dual Degrees

Our department offers a dual degree program between Griffith University and National Donghwa University, Taiwan. The articulation covers both undergraduate and master programs.

This dual degree program is supported by Griffith International.
