This unit provides a global picture of a country's economic and cultural environment and its recent enterprise development. Students are expected to apply the theories, models and findings taught in other master's degree units to analyse business issues from the perspective of both domestic and international managers. The unit includes a field trip to a country and the preparation of a substantial report on an aspect of the region, an industry or an enterprise operating in the region.

Places are variable depending on given location year to year. Enrolment requires a selection process that gives preference to students who are closer to course completion.
Students are able to (1) identify the concepts and key theories relevant to business growth in the international study region; (2) develop the specific aspects of the economic, political, social and cultural climates within the visited region; (3) identify the culture, social norms and business practices of the industries operating in the visited region; (4) develop integrative and critical thinking skills to solve problems relevant to global business; and (5) identify key differences between the factors driving business growth in the visited region versus comparable factors in Australia.
Typically this unit is assessed in the following ways: (1) participation and (2) presentations. Further information is available in the unit outline.

Supplementary assessment is not available in this unit.
