CUHK Business School fosters global exposure, learning and connection. We organize several overseas study trips every year to promote such international outlook to our students.
Study trips are an experiential learning initiative to:
• Help students to get global exposure, gain better understanding of the global market, in particular of the economic, commercial and cultural environment
• Develop students’ cross-cultural perspective and prepare them to work in a diverse environment in terms of people and culture
• Provide students with the opportunity to extend their network and exchange thoughts with business people at the companies they visit
• Allow students to learn how to do business in some emerging markets and cities
Israel study trip in May 2016
A group of 20 CUHK undergraduate Business School students went on an eight-day study tour to Israel, from May 21 to 28, 2016. Held in collaboration with the Hebrew University of Jerusalem (Hebrew University), the Hebrew University Innovation & Entrepreneurship Program study tour was the first study tour organized by the Undergraduate Office to Israel. With approximately 4,800 startup companies, venture capitalists and multinational corporations’ offices, Israel has been a hub for innovation and entrepreneurship over the past half century. The tour helped students learn about startup business in the global market and develop an entrepreneurial mindset.
