Eleven undergraduate Business and Commerce students recently engaged in an International Study Experience in France.

Eleven undergraduate Business and Commerce students recently engaged in an International Study Experience in France, funded by Endeavour Mobility Scholarships granted to Dr Tamara Young of the Newcastle Business School. The students completed a customised program on International Management and Marketing at the Burgundy School of Business, the AACSB/EQUIS Accredited Grand Ecole in Dijon. A central focus of the study program was to improve student knowledge of business management practices in the European economy and the sustainable management of cultural heritage sites, as well as enhance their cultural cognisance of European and French society through experiential learning.

In addition to daily formal lectures presented by a variety of international teaching staff at the Burgundy School of Business, students engaged in a range of professional activities, with various company visits and a presentation by Austrade at the Australian Embassy in Paris included in the itinerary. This experience was successful in meeting Faculty and University strategies to create and nurture global citizens, and students reflected extremely positively on the learning outcomes of this unique offering of BUSN3600 International Study Experience in France.
