Master of Global Business

General

Program Description

Get a global perspective on modern business theory, practice, and strategy, with a Master of Global Business from Victoria University of Wellington.

Global thinking in a connected world

Get a foot-hold in the business world with this intensive, professionally-focused postgraduate programme.

Build on your undergraduate degree and gain valuable skills in global business strategy and analysis, marketing, or management.

The 180-point Master's programme is course-based, and includes an industry consultancy project where you'll gain real-world experience, an international study trip, or a research project where you'll investigate a theoretical aspect of a current topic under debate.

Join the next generation of business leaders who can anchor business strategy in a global context and use this as a vehicle for growth.

Broad skills

You’ll get a broad foundation in modern business and explore how global connectivity impacts and influences the way business is done. Find out how companies successfully compete in the global business environment, and examine modern business theory, practice and strategy.

Add a specialisation to your degree. You could focus on management, marketing, e-government, information systems, commercial law—or any of the other subjects taught at Victoria Business School.

If you want to complete a Master's with a focus on professional skills, rather than research, then the MGBus is a good option for you.

What you'll study

The 180-point Master of Global Business is made up of three parts, each worth 60 points. The programme can be completed in one year of full-time study (three trimesters) or up to four years of part-time study.

Part 1 In Part 1 you'll study four courses and gain a solid foundation knowledge of key global business approaches and practises.

Part 2 In Part 2 you'll complete your elective courses. It’s here you can focus on your chosen specialisation, build on your foundation knowledge and hone your skills. Specialisations will be confirmed in 2020.

Part 3 In Part 3 you'll complete courses in strategy in a global marketplace, and effective management across cultures.

In this trimester you'll also complete a 30-point practical project. You can choose to do a consultancy project, where you'll be partnered with an organisation and use theory to resolve a business issue. Or you can complete a research project where you'll investigate a theoretical aspect of a current topic under debate.

Real-world connections

Take advantage of the University's connections in the business world by building valuable relationships and networks with peers, industry professionals and future colleagues, while completing a consulting project with a real company or organisation.

International recognition

Victoria Business School is among a small group of business schools worldwide that hold the 'Triple Crown' of international business education accreditations. You can be confident your qualification will stand up against the best around the world.

Careers

This qualification paves the way for careers in global logistics, international business development, import/export management and international brand management.

You could also continue your studies with a research-based Master's degree or possibly a PhD.
