A trans-Tasman first

In a trans–Tasman first, from next year Victoria will offer a new international trade degree that brings together expertise from four faculties.

The Master of International Trade—which spans Law, Science, Humanities and Social Sciences and Victoria Business School—offers students a unique opportunity to understand international trade law, economics and political economy, as well as a variety of cultural and critical perspectives impacting trade.

“New Zealand has a global reputation as a successful trading nation and is a respected player in international trade negotiations,” says Vice-Provost (Research) Professor Kate McGrath.

“Victoria is already highly regarded for study related to international trade. It’s fantastic that we are able to take our offering to the next level, with a degree programme that will be attractive to a range of students who will make their career contributing to the global economy through trade.”

The core courses in the degree, which can be completed in a year, will cover:

  • Multidisciplinary approaches to International Trade
  • International Trade Law
  • Economics of International Trade
  • International Political Economy.
