The over-arching goal of this in-country intensive course is to provide students with an exposure to the business environment of the selected country through site visits to corporations, NGOs and government agencies. It will also provide an opportunity to understand the cultural and historical dimensions that shape business practice. This course will also emphasise personal and professional development in key areas such as leadership, management, marketing, entrepreneurship and international business. The course will typically involve a visit of up to 10 days in the selected country. Students will be selected to enrol in the course following a competitive application process.

Specific details for each in-country program will be published on the College of Business and Economics website.

Students will only be permitted to travel upon completion of ANU required documentation including, where required, the travel to a high risk destination form, and the approval of all documentation by the relevant delegate. 

Disclaimer: Applicants are advised that due to circumstances beyond the University's control (for example, specific international security concerns and international health crises) it may not be possible for students to commence or complete this course as advertised.
