Highlights /tentative itinerary
This credited overseas study experience presents business students with unique opportunities to experience a wide range of innovative business practices. In previous years, we have visited:
- a range of multinational organisations (e.g. BMW, Google, Intel, Moet et Chandon, Disney, Facebook, Nike)
- government departments (e.g. AusAID Paris, Irish Investment Development Agency, European Parliament, UNESCO)
- research partners, start-ups and business accelerators throughout Europe.
In addition, we have also visited a number of Swinburne’s strategic partner academic institutions (e.g. Université de Fribourg, Reutlingen University, University College Dublin), where Swinburne students have networked and collaborated with European students, and learned first-hand about longer-term exchange, internship and further study opportunities available to them in Europe.
