US Future of Business Study Tour


Over the winter break The University of Sydney Business School is offering a unique program in the US for our undergraduate students. The program takes place in Sydney, New York and Washington DC between 2nd – 25th July 2018. Included is a pre-departure workshop on 6 June.

The University of Sydney Business School’s US Future of Business Study Tour will include a short study program at New York’s NYU Stern School of Business as well as Washington’s Georgetown University.  The overall program will focus on Design Thinking Methodology, allowing students to develop their academic, social, cultural, and professional skills to position them for a successful global career.

Students will work on real world projects in conjunction with Boston Consulting Group and through this they will be exposed to design thinking theories and processes which are regularly used in organisations, governments and markets in the US as well as globally.  They will apply their business knowledge to understand, recommend and reflect on issues and challenges directly related to US business culture. Students are expected to apply their cross-cultural, research and collaborative skills as well as their critical thinking skills when completing projects of strategic importance to the start-up design project that they have chosen.

Students will be fully supported for the duration of the program by an academic from the Business School and a business consultant.

There will be partial Business School scholarships awarded under two categories i.e. Merit & Leadership and Equity & Merit. Please refer to the Fees and Scholarships page for further information.

All efforts will be made to meet the short-term study tour criteria. However, if for reasons beyond our control this cannot be achieved, then all efforts will be made for alternative learning activities to be organised to student/s in order to meet the unit of study learning requirements.
