Explore business in an international market

As part of studying in an international and diverse class, you will be encouraged to adopt a global perspective. Today’s markets are no longer localised, competition is on a global scale and our teaching reflects this.

The Global Experience Week is an opportunity to immerse yourself in the business environment of another country. Together with the rest of your class you will visit local and global companies, and meet Business School alumni based in that country. The Global Experience Week is an intensive exploration of a country’s business practices and challenges using company visits to learn through practical case studies. For 2022-23, there will be a portfolio of three trips to choose from, including:

  • Brazil – Unlocking potential
  • Kenya – How business can scale while addressing the SDGs
  • Nordics (exact destination TBC) – How businesses can be transformed to tackle climate action

The Global Experience Week exposes students to new markets in the world and gives them an opportunity to learn about the social, cultural and business environment of these markets.
