BUSN13-301: South East Asia Study Tour


The SE Asia Study Tour provides an immersive experience and insights into doing business in developing economies. The tour will focus on the business opportunities in manufacturing, transport and logistics, and in the leisure, hospitality and tourism sectors. The developing economies of SE Asia provide some of the most exciting business opportunities in the world. The ASEAN region is a dynamic growing market with large, growing and predominantly young populations. It has a competitive advantage in labour supply, and it is geographically and politically well-positioned to exploit trade tensions between the superpowers. It is also one of the most beautiful areas of the world with amazing scenery, history, culture, food, and hospitable people. Learn about government economic development strategies, and business opportunities and challenges in SE Asia across a range of industries, including auto manufacturing, solar technology, logistics, IT and communications, and tourism, though site visits and guest speakers from government and industry. And there will be plenty of time for rest and relaxation – temples, ancient cities, shopping, beaches, fabulous restaurants and hotels.
