Testimonial The International Business degree provided me with a clear understanding on how to handle a variety of cultures in order to get the best outcome for a business. It did not only cover what to expect in Australia or Dubai but covered a wide spectrum of cultures across the world. The program taught me to be open-minded and how to adapt to changing situations.
