2021 ‘Learn & Experience’ Study Tours
2021 ‘Learn & Experience’ Study Tours
One of the key components in the Global Immersion Programme (GIP) is an overseas study tour, where business students enjoy the opportunity to visit different countries and learn about their cultures, lifestyles, and business practices. While the pandemic might have deprived students of the opportunity to travel aboard, it does not dampen their enthusiasm to learn about different cultures and expand their understanding of international business. This year, Lee Shau Kee School of Business and Administration (B&A) has organized a series of ‘Learn and Experience’ study tours, where students have the opportunity to join a local residential programme centered on a specific country and culture.

From late March till end of April, three one-week programmes are offered at Auberge Discovery Bay on Spanish culture:
  1. 28th March – 3rd April, 2021
  2. 11th April – 17th April, 2021
  3. 18th April – 24th April, 2021
We are honoured to have the support of The Trade Commission of Spain in Hong Kong and Macau, The Spanish Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong and LaLiga to curate an immersive and engaging experience for our students to learn about Spanish culture, lifestyles, and business practices. Through their generous contributions, our students were able to not only learn about the different facets of Spain—from cultural and historical, to economic and social—but also meet and interact with diplomats and executives of Spanish businesses and organizations. This meaningful exchange provided students new perspectives that could enrich their understanding in and around the concepts of international business.
