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.”

Who can apply?  You must be:

  • a NZ citizen or permanent resident
  • aged 18 or over
  • enrolled in an undergraduate programme at a New Zealand tertiary institution and have completed at least one year of study by the time TMIP commences

UC awarded 30 PMSA scholarships for China Study Tour

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
  • Visas
  • 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.
