Business around the world is in an era of fast-evolving change. The Bachelor of Commerce majoring in Global Business from Lincoln University prepares you with a core of international business management knowledge, alongside the values and decision-making abilities needed to mirror modern-day customer priorities, company responsibilities and market dynamics.

To stay globally competitive, New Zealand needs graduates who understand the skills and values required in international business. Focusing on the internationalism of management, co-ordination and key functions in multi-national corporations, this degree expands your potential so that you add value and can progress in any large organisation.

How you’ll grow

  • Nourish your ability to assess and evaluate business needs, then apply analytical and decision-making skills.
  • Learn the structure, systems and channels by which international business operates.
  • Deepen your experience and relevance by studying overseas in a country of economic relevance to New Zealand for part of your study. 

Career opportunities

As a graduate of Lincoln’s Bachelor of Commerce (Global Business major), you’ll have the skills and insights to shape and lead successful businesses. Because of our specialist food and ecosystems focus, you’ll be particularly attractive to agribusinesses. Added courses in Business and Sustainability, Supply Chain Management or Hotel and Tourism Management will multiply your competitive edge.

The ability to go and have in-depth chats with my lecturers was really great. I look back and think being at Lincoln was the best part of my life.
