These study tours offer a unique and invaluable business and cultural programme, allowing students to gain direct experience of contemporary business and management issues.

The tours include visits to global companies such as Lenovo and Tencent, meetings with top executives as well as relevant universities for exposure to business engagement and business research apart from cultural excursions.

Study tours are usually organised in January each year, and the destinations focus on emerging markets. Past study tours have taken students to Shanghai, Ningbo, Beijing and Taiwan.
