It’s time to apply for TMIP 2020!

Are you are a market and business-savvy student who wants to learn more about the Southeast Asia market?

Then the Tertiary Market Immersion Programme (TMIP) to Indonesia, Malaysia, and Singapore is for you!

The programme is run by the Southeast Asia Centre of Asia-Pacific Excellence (SEA CAPE) from 4-24 January 2020 and you’ll work on a group project in the weeks following your return to Aorearoa New Zealand.

SEA CAPE will meet all your expenses – travel, insurance, accommodation and meals. In return, you’ll need to complete specified tasks and promotional activities.

Why should you apply?

  • You’ll broaden your understanding of and engagement with Southeast Asia
  • You’ll learn about business environments and opportunities in the region
  • You’ll be introduced to social, cultural and political dimensions of life in Southeast Asia
  • You’ll work in teams, guided by academic and industry mentors, to develop a relevant business concept and present this at the end of the programme in Singapore

How could this programme benefit you?
Don’t only take our word for it – we’ve collected stories from students on the programme earlier this year. The students share how they now have confidence to talk about Southeast Asia and how it helped them see new opportunities to set up business in the region.

UC Arts student Charlotte Keir, says “TMIP was a valuable experience and I would recommend any tertiary student to apply. As a non-business student, I learnt so much about New Zealand entrepreneurship in Southeast Asia and the distinct business culture of each country.”
