Australia & New Zealand - Business Administration Down Under
Travel Dates: May 2-May 18, 2014
In 2014 we are pleased to add Australia and New Zealand to our portfolio of international destinations! Our incredible journey begins in Sydney, the business and financial capital of Australia's strong and thriving economy. It's the location of choice for more and more international firms and home to two of the world's most recognizable icons - the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbor Bridge.
After spending three days in OZ, we take a short hop across the Tasman Sea to New Zealand. Located in the South Pacific Ocean, New Zealand is made up of two main islands. The North Island is home to the majority of New Zealand’s four million people. It’s known for its beaches and geothermal regions, and for showcasing the country’s Maori heritage. The North Island’s major cities, Auckland and Wellington, are exciting business hubs offering a wide range of opportunity for some of the most unique corporate visits our study abroad programs have to offer. The South Island is famous for its dramatic landscapes and wildlife. Our twelve days in New Zealand will take us from the city of Auckland in the north to Queenstown in the south and will focus on many aspects of New Zealand business, from clean technology to agribusiness to the creative industries (film, television and apparel).
The theme for our newest study abroad course is “Business Administration—Down Under” and as the title implies, they do business a little differently in Australia and New Zealand. As relatively young countries accustomed to being at the furthest reaches of international trade, Australia and New Zealand have developed a unique business culture, which we will have the opportunity to explore first hand.
