MBA STUDY TOUR
Credit points: 15
The MBA Study Tour is an elective subject that provides MBA students with an opportunity to participate in an international or domestic study tour. Adopting an experiential learning approach, you will have an opportunity to visit and observe a number of sites relevant to the business context of the specific tour, which may include events, businesses, cultural sites, organisations and authorities. The learning experience is augmented through active engagement with professionals, investigation of the economic and social challenges fasting the organisations visited and personal reflection of your experiences on tour. The study tour will enable you to apply your theoretical knowledge in a real-life business environment. This learning is supported by online and/or face-to-face learning activities and specific assessment tasks tailored to the nature of the study tour activities.
