Lead profitable cross-border relationships

International trade and development is the glue that binds humanity into a single, powerful engine of progress. It has the potential to generate widespread prosperity, raise global living standards, strengthen societies, and build strong, respectful cross-border relationships.

Leaders who master its complexities will enjoy a wealth of career opportunities throughout the world. Our Master of Business Administration (International Trade and Development) can be entered immediately upon completing any bachelor degree and will make you one of them.

What will you do?

The MBA (International Trade and Development) is part of the Adelaide MBA suite and can be completed over two years. The degree will equip you with:

  • a deep understanding of global trade drivers—economic, geopolitical and cultural—and the levers of power
  • a thorough working knowledge of best-practice community development principles
  • highly advanced strategic thinking skills—the ability to see the bigger commercial and societal picture and make decisions with a truly global outlook
  • high-level problem-solving, analytical, critical thinking and self-reflection skills
  • a firm grasp of the principles of adaptive leadership, systems thinking, organisational behaviour, change management and social enterprise
  • outstanding management capabilities in critical business functions, including finance, accounting, economics and marketing.

You’ll also:

  • build extensive industry and professional relationships and networks
  • receive invaluable ongoing industry mentoring from high-profile Adelaide MBA alumni
  • have the opportunity to undertake international exchanges at world-leading European business schools.

Where could it take you?

The Adelaide MBA (International Trade and Development) will prepare you to move rapidly into senior management and leadership roles in the private, public and not-for-profit sectors.

You could tailor a multinational’s market development strategies for specific global regions; mastermind a non-government organisation’s community-building programs in developing countries; or lead official delegations to advance your country’s interests at the WTO.
