GLOBAL STRATEGY AND INNOVATION
Innovation. Global Networks. International Impact.
Enterprises innovate and grow, and in our region that often is the result of the fusion between new ideas and the opportunities to pursue global markets.
Asia is our region. With trade, education and immigration, our economy has become inextricably linked to Asia. It’s a complex relationship that is of tremendous international importance.
The Australian Centre for Asian Business draws from across the UniSA Business School to research business, management and trade issues that arise between the vastly different cultures. If you have worked in international trade, you will understand the legal, financial and cultural complexities that arise.
