The aim of the Master of Diplomacy and Trade is to meet the training and professional development needs of those who are in the fields of international business, diplomacy, economics, law and contemporary politics. It provides formal academic study across a range of disciplines relevant to the needs of organisations operating in the global environment. It is designed for individuals working in the government sector engaged in the implementation and provision of policy advice in the areas of foreign affairs, trade and business related issues. In the private sector, the course is designed for individuals who are operating, or seeking to work, in an international capacity in both the corporate or not-for-profit sector.
The program prepares you to further your career in the diplomatic service as well as in international organisations, government departments and multinational corporations where an understanding of international relations, politics, economics and trade are essential.
