What better way to learn about international business affairs than by living and studying in one of the world’s largest economies?

You will have the opportunity to spend an entire semester at our China or Malaysia campus. This gives you a better understand of the historical and cultural context within which both China and Malaysia have become such important players in the global economy for international business.

For graduates from all disciplines who want to make the transition into business, this course provides you with a solid foundation in international business theory and practice.
