Professional Certificate in International Trade
The Professional Certificate in International Trade provides students with a practical understanding of current international trade and investment issues, the political dynamics of the negotiating environment, and the opportunities and challenges presented to businesses by the globalised economy.
Whether studying corporate finance, marketing strategies or applied economics, the contemporary globalised environment requires an understanding of how these areas will be impacted by bilateral and multilateral trade agreements, international trade disputes, and non-economic societal influences on international markets.
This program is designed to give students a competitive edge by providing them with an interactive case-study based background in how business and government interact in trade negotiations, leveraging commercial opportunities arising out of 'third wave' trade agreements, and practical legal and commercial aspects of export marketing.
The program is offered in trimester mode. There are three trimesters in each academic year (January, May and September).
