International & National Business Experience BMA702


Available as an elective to students enrolled in postgraduate programs with the Tasmanian School of Business and Economics only


This unit is designed to enable students to be involved in a significant experiential national or international study tour opportunity. Many Tasmanian organisations do business with organisations or customers on the mainland or in foreign countries. Their managers need to have first-hand experience and knowledge of business in mainland states and/or with countries overseas to appreciate the complexities of national and international business operations. The national or international study tour will provide students with an invaluable opportunity to draw together theory and practice in the country or region visited. Some study tours will also take place in Tasmania and in these cases will be focused on the needs of overseas students to understand the industrial sectors, business cultures, and economics of Tasmania.

This unit involves participation in an intensive field trip to a country or region, usually in Europe, Asia, America or in some instances Australia. The intensive field trip (two to three weeks) includes visits to multinational corporations, universities and government departments. Students will be required to produce three pieces of work as part of the tour. An initial regional or country analysis; an in-country learning journal; and then a team based presentation to the postgraduate student body and teaching staff in the Tasmanian School of Business and Economics on return from the tour. Representatives of Tasmanian business and industry will also be invited to the presentations.
