This unit is a study tour where students develop a start up idea that has been developed prior to the in-country experience. Students work on real world problems faced by organisations, governments and markets in the US. Students apply their business knowledge to understand, recommend and reflect on issues and challenges cognisant of the US business culture. Students are expected to apply their cultural competence, research and collaborative skills as well as their critical thinking in completing projects of strategic importance to the start up design project that they have chosen.
Classes will vary by country and itinerary but will generally include pre-departure classes, in-country classes as well as field visits.
