Work on the international stage

The world economy is increasingly moving toward a global economy, and concurrently business is increasingly becoming international business. It's no wonder companies place such importance on business professionals with the knowledge and skills to successfully operate with and in international markets.

It takes a special set of skills to engage the international business community and nobody understands this better than Griffith's 40+ international business experts. By opening the door to information and ideas from both home and abroad, Griffith is continually helping to develop specifically-skilled graduates and create more opportunities for Australian businesses to successfully engage with foreign markets.
