Subject Description

This subject is designed to give students a broad understanding of business issues in a global context. A blend of formal study and experiential learning will enhance students’ knowledge of conducting business in an international market and an appreciation of cultural issues. Students will gain an understanding of international organisations through immersion in a foreign country, participation in academic seminars conducted by partner institutions, industry visits, group work, and cultural activities. As the study tour location and focus may vary each year, the course is designed to have flexible topics depending on the focus of the tour. Student will complete a two week pre-departure research and preparation program relevant to the scheduled seminars and company visits and submit a reflective journal or report on their return. The study tour will typically run over three weeks during summer or winter school depending on the destination and visits.
