Global Markets (2024)

The new Global Markets major aims to prepare graduates to work in a complex and interconnected global workplace. Students will get to grips with the challenges of doing business internationally and be well-placed to provide solutions to problems that arise when trading across cultural boundaries. They will develop expertise in supply chain management, agribusiness, and other related areas of business. Graduates will understand how global economic issues impact on their own industry or workplace. They will critically examine how global interconnectedness affects trade; and be ready to seek out solutions for problems in international supply chains.

Global Markets is available as a first major for the Bachelor of Global Studies (BGS). Global Markets may also be included as a second major or minor in undergraduate degrees, subject to approval of the Division in which the student is enrolled.
