Tri-continental cohort exchange
Living in this global village, every top-tier business leader cannot hope to escape the need to do business on an international level. It is therefore critical for business undergraduates to learn to be versatile and equipped with diverse cultural knowledge to face the dynamic and challenging business world. More privileged to other students in Hong Kong, GLOBE students have the unique opportunity to step out of Asia and have a taste of studying and living in both Europe and North America. These cross country experiences enrich students’ learning by giving them ample avenues to explore different cultural heritages with their peers from two other continents as a cohort.
Learning how to work in an international group is also crucial these days. GLOBE students can learn how to cooperate with teammates from different cultural backgrounds through having lessons, doing projects and engaging in discussions with promising students from CBS and UNC. Also, interaction with other elites motivates students to further explore and develop their goals and strengths, and build up their confidence in their abilities.
Truly, the convergence of 54 brilliant minds creates a platform for exchange of ideas, innovations and aspirations. The strong bonding among GLOBE students is indeed a coveted advantage.
To further reinforce their learning in the GLOBE courses, GLOBE students participate in study trips in Asia, Europe and the U.S. Attending executive briefings at selected organizations enables students to get firsthand perspectives from those working in a global setting. In this way, students can learn how different corporations adapt to the global environment and how cultural differences influence business operations.
In addition, an orientation trip is arranged every August for Year 1 students before they start their university studies.
Destinations of previous study trips were as follows:
