PrOGrAM struCturE
The MIB program structure has two main components comprised of core courses and electives. 6 core courses in International Business: • Theory and Practice of International Business (Foundation) • Economic Principles in International Business • Cross-cultural Management and Negotiation • International Trade and Investment Policy • International Business Strategy (Capstone) • Doing Business in Asia or Contemporary Issues in International Business Economic Principles in International Business This course provides a framework for the consideration of business options and strategies in globalised markets. The focus is on firms, markets and governments. The course presents the core concepts in the theory of the behaviour and choices of firms and discusses the impact of globalisation on options available. It identifies the ways in which world and domestic markets for goods and services, as well as labour and capital, interact and determine the economy-wide context of business decision making. A framework for the consideration of the role of government is presented and some features of the relationships between business and government are discussed. Cross-cultural Management and Negotiation This course explores the effect of cultural differences on organisational behaviour and negotiation in the global context. It exposes students to issues and problems that inevitably arise in international business when managers have to deal with culturally determined differences in values, attitudes and behaviours. The course assists students in developing cross-cultural communication competence and management and negotiation skills to successfully solve problems and capitalise on opportunities in a multicultural environment. Specific topics include: understanding the foundations of culture and cultural frameworks; cross-cultural verbal and non-verbal communication and communication styles; motivation, leadership and decision making across cultures; negotiation and conflict resolution in global business settings; understanding organisational culture; managing multicultural teams and culturally diverse organisations. Students will have an opportunity to study concepts and theories from crosscultural psychology and management and apply the acquired knowledge in handson activities such as scenario-based discussions, case studies and simulations in order to gain relevant skills. International Trade and Investment Policy This course examines the interactions between economic, political, strategic, and legal aspects of international trade and investment policies at national, regional and global levels. This includes the ways in which WTO members affect and are affected by regional and multilateral trade and economic integration agreements. The effects of trade and investment policy on the efficiency of resource use, on income distribution, and on national and global trade and economic welfare are analysed using trade theories and models of international trade and investment. International Business Strategy (Capstone) This course analyses how multinational firms leverage their capabilities and competencies to create competitive advantages in international and global markets. Topics include assessing foreign market attractiveness; understanding the impact of differences in legal, cultural, political and economic regimes, evaluating international political and economic risks, building and operating global networks, including entry mode choice, understanding how managers design organisational architecture and implement internal control and incentive mechanisms; and assessing the challenges of global citizenship, ethical behaviour and social responsibility for international business. The course focuses on the development of skills to understand the issues that managers face in operating in international markets and supply chains. Students will develop an understanding of the conceptual frameworks that clarify the relationships between policies and domestic and global strategies. They will also have the opportunity, as a team project, to develop a proposal that focuses on a key strategic decision facing senior management involved in entering an overseas market for the first time; or expanding existing operations into a new foreign market as part of a corporate strategy. They will develop an understanding of the constraints

MIB Core Courses (18 Units)
Theory and Practice of International Business (Foundation) This course prepares graduate students for conducting business in the global environment, analysing factors that facilitate integration into a global market and those that maintain differences across states. The broad content themes include globalisation and the multinational enterprise; theory of trade and investment; doing business in different political, economic and socio-cultural systems; the impact of economic development and social change; the role of international law and international organisations; and the challenges of international security. This inter-disciplinary course is taught collaboratively, using team-based learning, case studies and country risk analyses. The course thereby provides students with the opportunity to develop skills in comparative analysis, managing risk and identifying opportunities, intercultural competence, as well as a consideration of ethics and human rights in business, both at home and abroad.

and advantages in developing a new overseas market and managing existing offshore operations with new challenges. The course includes team teaching and problem-based learning, with case study workshops, as an integral part of the program. Doing Business in Asia* This course prepares graduate students for doing business in the Asian economies including the two big emerging markets (BEMs) of Asia (China and India). The economies of China and India are growing rapidly and Asia is emerging as one of the key drivers of global economic growth. The aim of this course is to understand the environmental and organisational issues confronting firms doing business in Asia. These issues might include the external environment, such as social, economic, political, cultural, legal, technological, customer and competitive factors, as well as the strategic and organisational responses of firms to the complicated, distinct and dynamic business challenges in Asia. The course thereby provides students with the opportunity to develop skills in

understanding the internal as well as external constraints facing firms who wish to enter and conduct business activities in the big emerging markets (BEMs) in Asia and Latin America and the BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India and China) economies. Contemporary Issues in International Business This course prepares students for understanding the globalisation of emerging markets. The course examines the distinctive business environment of emerging markets and how that context shapes the opportunities, risks, and strategic approaches of domestic and foreign firms operating in emerging economies. The cases used in the course will illustrate the impact of the integration of large emerging markets, particularly the BRIC countries (Brazil, Russia, India and China), into the global economy, focusing not only on macroeconomic factors. The globalisation of emerging markets is also reshaping the competitive environment for firms based or operating in those countries. The course thereby provides students with the opportunity

to develop skills in understanding the emerging markets and prepares students to evaluate and formulate emerging market strategies based on a clear understanding of relevant theories and case materials from both indigenous firms and multinational corporations, small and large, and private and state owned.
* Students are encouraged to undertake a period of overseas study as part of this program. To facilitate this opportunity, the School plans to offer the course Doing Business in Asia via Ngee Ann Adelaide Education Centre in Singapore. In the event of insufficient enrolment demand or that students are unable to undertake offshore study, a substitute course Contemporary Issues in International Business will be offered in Adelaide.

Higher Degree by Research
This degree may serve as a pathway to a higher degree by research. Students considering a research degree are advised to consult the Program Director prior to making an application.

Successful employment of graduates is often influenced by the work experience, transferable skills and associated networks developed throughout program of study. The Master of International Business internships, study abroad and industry based projects provide the perfect opportunity to develop these work-ready and life-ready skills expected of Adelaide graduates. Students are encouraged to incorporate an in-business internship into their study plans or to gain an international perspective via an overseas exchange as part of their degree. Several options are available to suit a range of circumstances: 1. Part-time internships, locally in Adelaide 2. Full-time major research projects, with an organisation in Adelaide or overseas 3. Semester coursework exchange with University partners across the globe, or 4. Short-term, 2-3 week summer or winter programs overseas. The University of Adelaide Business School prides itself on its prestigious university partners across Europe, North America and Asia, including key partnerships with the Aalto School of Economics in Finland, European Business School in Germany, ESCP EuRoPE in Paris, Audencia School of Management in Nantes, France and HEC Montreal in Canada. Short-term study tours are available in China, Singapore and in Europe. Exchange places are competitive and students must meet the criteria set out by Adelaide Abroad. www.adelaide.edu.au/ student/study_abroad

What is an internship?
An internship provides candidates with an opportunity to experience a hands-on business environment in which to observe and apply their discipline specific knowledge and skills. It also allows students to demonstrate their proficiency in the university Graduate Attributes (professional transferable skills). Internships often involve a project of importance to the business, and students will also be involved in observations, meetings, clerical work and administration. Expectations are that students gain a clearer insight into the day-to-day functioning of the business, integrate fully into their host workplace and operate as members of the host organisation team. Host organisations are expected to provide all necessary equipment, facilities, contacts and direction required to complete the internship, with the work associated with the internship to be completed in the workplace.

selection criteria might be used to evaluate various overseas market locations; and what entry mode choices are likely to best suit the business given the age, size, nature of the business offering and organisational structure. Topics will be approved by the relevant academic discipline leader and may be supervised collaboratively, using a case study, supervised reading and country risk analysis. The project provides students with the opportunity to develop skills in comparative analysis, considering the internal and external contexts of crossborder activities.

Global Opportunities
In addition to the formal exchange and short-term study programs, the Business School partners with a number of third-party providers to assist students to locate international internship opportunities in a variety of organisations. Some of the partners include: • AIESEC www.aiesec.org/australia • Academic Internship Council (AIC) www.academicinternshipcouncil.org • Antipodeans Abroad www.antipodeans.com.au/Programs/ Global-Education.htm. Students are encouraged to pursue the Major Research Project overseas via these organisations, with the understanding that they will incur an additional cost. The project scope will be student initiated and approved by the Program Director on a case-bycase basis. Fluency in the business language of the host country will enhance opportunities for internships overseas.

What is the Major Research Project?
The Major Research Project in International Business is the equivalent of a full-semester of study and is dependent on the availability of academic supervision. The project is comprised of a supervised structured reading plan and the completion of a research project, on an approved topic. This course of study is designed for students in their final semester and will be appropriate for students intending to work in big business as well as smaller entrepreneurial enterprises in Australia or overseas. Students will gain an understanding of why businesses may choose to internationalise their activities; what
