Program Details

  • Travel Dates: Not running this year
  • Availability: 40 spaces
  • Open to: Postgraduate and Undergraduate students
Participants will attend classes at RMIT in Melbourne and Thammasat University University in Bangkok, Thailand. They will also participate in the other activities as part of the study tour in Thailand.

During the onshore and offshore experience, students will engage in experiential learning activities that are designed to explore cross-cultural, social, business, technological, political, environmental and ethical issues associated with engaging in business in a global knowledge economy, in particular, Thailand. 

The onshore part of the course consists of a number of intensive experiential learning workshops before and after the offshore study abroad component in Thailand. 

The study abroad component consists of a two-week intensive teaching and learning experience in Thailand. Students will attend seminars at Thammasat University, attend presentations and panel discussions at a number of Thai business, industry, government as well as international organisations and cultural sites. 

Whilst in Thailand, at Thammasat University and the various site organisations, students will be required to participate in discussions with host presenters and a participation mark will be given to encourage such activities. Students will be expected to maintain a reflective journal and obtain such information that will enable the completion of a research paper on return to Australia.
