Introduction to Business in Asia
We will spend the first three days of the study tour completing an “Introduction to Business in Asia”. These three days will involve presentations by a number of government representatives, organisations and professionals working in Indonesia and internationally. Likely sessions will include a talk by the Victorian Trade Commissioner to Indonesia, a lecture on international business at our partner University, a visit to a mentoring organisation for Indonesian start-ups, a visit to the ASEAN Secretariat, as well as to major global retailers and logistics professionals. The focus will be on international trade, logistics and fashion.
On the first day, we will visit Jakarta’s ‘old City”, where many museums and historical monuments are located. This area is a must-see for students wishing to understand Indonesia’s history and culture, as well as the factors that have influenced its current international relations.
Bandung (Sunday 14th January – Saturday 20th January)
In Bandung, we will spend mornings at our industry partner’s production facility and other textile factories within the Bandung region. The schedule here will be packed full with time spent at our partner manufacturer’s factory, at international mills and with local brands.
In the afternoons and evenings, you will have the time to discover the city of Bandung, a major factory outlet shopping destination and fashion entrepreneurship hub in South East Asia.
International Internships will connect us with a local university to bring local students and activities during the program. Visits are planned to the Textile Institute: the Bandung Institute of Technology (ITB) and the Indonesian College of Design (STDI)
