This project unit aims to immerse Business students in a live context in order to expand their perspectives and learn to apply their Business knowledge to researching complex problems and issues (social, cultural and/or economic). Students engage with multiple stakeholders in seeking answers and questioning perspectives, while learning cultural diplomacy issues. As part of the immersion, students travel to the relevant Southeast Asian country to better understand the context and to undertake small-scale themed, live projects shaped by economic, political, technological and socio-cultural forces that impact businesses, societies and markets.
