International & National Business Experience BMA702


• This unit is designed to enable students to experience business organisations through interactions with local, national and international business partners representing a broad range of business fields. Students will be provided with current, specific and applicable business knowledge through local and national site visits (where available) and through online practical video workshops with high-calibre international business speakers. With a focus on theory into practice, and encompassing a broad range of business fields, students will interact through face-to-face and online workshop activities designed to allow them to apply their learning outcomes through simulated business environments, and under the guidance of specialist business personnel.

• This unit may involve travel around Tasmania or to Victoria (Melbourne), and possibly other states within Australia. The Business Experience may include interactive workshops, coursework, speakers, instructors, mentor office hours, co-working space access, educational tours of accelerators and tech companies, a welcome and farewell dinner.

• Students will be required to produce two pieces of work as part of the tour: a learning journal, a team (or individual in special circumstances) presentation upon return from the tour. Teaching staff at the TSBE and international, national and local business leaders may include the group to be provided with a copy of the video presentation for comments to students.
