International Study Tour

One of the most popular highlights of the Waikato MBA is an international study tour, with 9-12 days of industry visits and cultural sight-seeing. This provides an opportunity for you to learn first-hand about doing business in different cultures, and see how global theories work in practice.

Not only will you visit successful blue-chip international companies to see how they are run, but you'll also get to talk to their leaders.

You'll meet New Zealanders doing business offshore, representatives from New Zealand Trade and Enterprise, attend networking events with MBA participants from the host country, and engage with senior economic commentators.

Finally, you'll attend a series of seminars focused on the economies of the countries you visit.

While on tour you will:

  • Visit successful international corporations; see how they are run and talk to their leaders
  • Engage with senior economic commentators
  • Meet New Zealanders doing business offshore
  • Meet representatives from New Zealand Trade and Enterprise
  • Attend a series of seminars that focus on the infrastructure and economics of countries you visit
  • Be exposed to valuable international business networks and linkages
  • Attend a networking event with MBA participants from the host country
  • Length: 9 - 12 days
  • The Study Tour happens in the second year of the Waikato MBA.
