This subject consolidates and extends interdisciplinary learning within diverse and complex international business contexts. Discipline specific knowledge accumulated throughout undergraduate learning is integrated into a coherent form suitable for sharing and use. Competitive strategies and industry dynamics are emphasised; with a focus on developing students' emerging understandings of Indigenous issues in business. Business acumen is refined by self-directed team engagement with realistic business scenarios. Learners actively interpret, critique and communicate information and decisions justified on established business principles. Information is evaluated within competitive business environments to reach negotiated decisions by collaboration in professionally and/or culturally diverse teams and through individual initiative. Generic critical analysis, problem solving, decision making and creative thinking capabilities are enhanced through a process of simulation, reflection and experiential learning. A professional approach, with appropriate ethical principles, attributes and values informs the transition to employment.
