Study commitment

This unit is based on a study tour. Students will on average spend 150 hours over the teaching period undertaking the teaching, learning and assessment activities for this unit.

In-person attendance requirements

The tour involves a compulsory online pre-departure orientation session. The MBT704 (combined with MPT732) tour is designed as a collaborative and independent guided learning experience with activities in multiple, international settings, held over ten days. There will be approximately 22 hours dedicated to actively engaging in learning and assessment activities. There are in-tour and post-tour assessment tasks to be completed which relate to the international experience. In addition, there is an experiential learning component of approximately 27 hours where students undertake a combination of company site and business institution visits; and cultural experiences relevant to the destination. The program is designed to be interactive, collaborative and reflective. The international experience will provide students with a greater understanding of how the business and cultural environment impacts on business and management decision making and how these insights can be transferred across international boundaries.  


Business & Law International Study Tours are by application only and quotas may apply.
