Program Description

Gain an edge for success in the global economy

Take advantage of this unique opportunity for multidisciplinary study and discover the complex world of international trade. Explore the role of trade in society from a range of perspectives—the international legal rules, economic rationales, and the political and social implications.

Study how the world is connected through trade and the way it affects businesses, as producers and exporters—consider these issues through the lenses of different disciplines. Explore the impact of trade on indigenous populations, including the historical and contemporary perspectives of Māori involvement in international trade.

Expert staff, international reputation

You'll be learning from lecturers with international reputations for teaching, research, and publishing. And because international trade involves several disciplines, including International Relations, Economics, Law, Public Policy and Development Studies, teaching will be across four different faculties—Law, Science, Humanities and Social Sciences, and the Wellington School of Business and Government.

Community

Postgraduate study at Victoria will help you build valuable relationships and networks with peers, university staff and future colleagues.

You'll have opportunities to attend events, workshops, social functions and seminars such as the Student Learning Postgraduate Research skills sessions.

The Postgraduate Students' Association can give you information and provides a voice for you on campus.

Returning to study

Many students return to university for postgraduate study after several years away. If it's been a while since you've studied, our liaison officers can help you get back into university life.

Careers

A Master of International Trade will open doors to a career as an international trade specialist in public agencies, businesses and non-governmental organizations around the world.

Scholarships

You can look for scholarships based on your level of study, subject area, and background.
