The International Trade and Development program from the University of Adelaide equips you for leading roles in areas related to economic growth and development. We help you build the knowledge, networks and capacity to enable change.    


What will you do?

  • Gain practical insights into the political dynamics of trading environments.
  • Understand the roles of key domestic, regional and global players.
  • Consider opportunities and challenges facing businesses and economies in a globalised world.
  • Build advanced legal and commercial knowledge.
  • Learn negotiation and leveraging strategies through case-based learning experiences.
