For the month of July, ten students from the Faculty of Business and Law have headed to China as part of their Bachelor of Business and Bachelor of Commerce programs. This provides an exciting opportunity for our students to immerse themselves in Chinese culture through work experience in an organisation located in either Shanghai or Beijing, China.
Fourth year Bachelor of Business/Bachelor of Commerce student Miranda said, “My expectations of the trip are of a rich professional and cultural experience. China is renowned for its incredible business culture, and as a result I have no doubt that the professional work experience I will gain will be invaluable and help to better prepare myself to enter the workforce.”
Fellow fourth year student Kieran shared the same enthusiasm for the trip, “Having studied finance and international business, the University of Newcastle’s program has provided the perfect opportunity to further my study in both areas while simultaneously gaining relevant industry experience. I will be provided the chance to utilise my majors while working with a domestic financial information provider in Shanghai’s World Financial Centre.”
Such practical opportunities for student learning and cultural awareness are part of our commitment to students in preparing them for global citizenship and providing the knowledge and skills to allow them to excel in the global market place.
This trip is supported by the Faculty of Business and Law and the University of Newcastle along with the Department of Industry Innovation, Science, Research and Tertiary Education and CRCC Asia.
