The MGMT228 Chinese Business Practices and Culture study tour offers students an exciting opportunity to learn about Chinese business practices and culture, and interact with Chinese students and businesses. The study tour commences with an orientation week at UC where students learn about and research business in China, with a particular focus on the dairy industry. Students then spend four and half weeks in China. The first three weeks involve attending classes on management, economics, Chinese language, arts and culture at Zhejiang Gongshang University in the city of Hangzhou. This is followed by a week in Shanghai during which students visit several well-known multinational businesses.
For the second year in a row UC’s School of Business & Economics has been successful in its application for funding from Education New Zealand to support MGMT228. 30 Prime Minister’s Scholarships for Asia have been made available to eligible students. Qualifying students, who are admitted to MGMT228, will have the following course-related expenses covered (up to a maximum of $2,350):
- Return airfares to Shanghai
- Accommodation and transport in China
- Travel insurance
Important note: PMSA scholarship funding is only available to NZ Citizens and Permanent Residents. International Students may still apply for MGMT228 but will not be eligible to receive funding.
MGMT228 is a summer course commencing in November 2015 and is open to any student who has completed 120 points of study at UC (30 points of which need to have come from commerce papers). Applications for this exciting course are currently being accepted and will close on 17 July.
