Gain an Edge for Success in the Global Economy

Take advantage of this unique opportunity for multidisciplinary study and discover the complex world of international trade. Explore the role of trade in society from a range of perspectives—the international legal rules, economic rationales and the political and social implications.

Study how the world is connected through trade and the way it affects businesses, as producers and exporters—consider these issues through the lenses of different disciplines. Explore the impact of trade on indigenous populations, including the historical and contemporary perspectives of Māori involvement in international trade.

Expert Staff, International Reputation

You'll be learning from lecturers with international reputations for teaching, research and publishing. And because international trade involves several disciplines, including International Relations, Economics, Law, Public Policy and Development Studies, teaching will be across four different faculties—Law, Science, Humanities and Social Sciences, and Wellington School of Business and Government.

Workload and Duration

If you are studying full-time you can expect a workload of 40 to 45 hours a week for much of the year. Part-time students taking two courses per trimester will need to do around 20 to 23 hours of work a week. Make sure you take this into account if you are working.

You can estimate your workload by adding up the number of points you'll be doing. One point is roughly equal to 10 to 12 hours work.

The Master of International Trade can be completed in three years of part-time study, or in three trimesters of full-time study.
