This unit may count as a capstone or an elective unit in your undergraduate or postgraduate degree

Over the past few decades, the business environment has undergone major transformations leading to a society characterised by interconnectedness, where change occurs rapidly and unpredictably.  The internet, smartphones and social media have played a significant role in shaping this environment.  Additionally, global events such as COVID-19 and the recent conflict in Ukraine, have heightened the perception of turbulence, uncertainty and risk. By providing a macro-level perspective, this immersive experience offers students a holistic view of the economic, social, technological, environmental, legal and political issues that impact business success.  The Tokyo Study Tour represents a unique and highly-valuable opportunity for students to gain insights into these factors.  Visits to businesses across a variety of industries enables students to develop their understanding of the context and the complex challenges to be faced.  The Tokyo Study Tour goes beyond theory to deliver practical experiences and equips students with the knowledge and skills necessary to thrive in today's complex and competitive global business environment.
