Globalisation: The Asia Pacific and Australia is an online unit offered by Griffith University and Open Universities Australia which provides a crucial introduction to the business environments of the Asia-Pacific region. It aims to illustrate the diverse impact that globalisation has on Australia and the Asia-Pacific region.
After initially exploring the dual effects of globalisation and regionalisation for Australia, the unit will go on to cover more in-depth issues on the subject. You will explore the role of history and the state and democracy, and consider developments in finance, investment, trade, security concerns and regional integration.
By examining such contemporary issues, the unit will expand your awareness of the key issues facing Australia in an increasingly globalised and regionalised world. The unit will also enhance your research and writing skills, and your ability to critically approach current debates.
There are no prerequisites for this unit, so anyone can apply. It is expected however, that students will have the ability to write academic papers at first year university level.
