Doing Business in Asia - 6 Day Travel Tour

Canada's engagement with and interest in Asia has grown in recent years due to the phenomenal economic growth in the region, new trade agreements, immigration to Canada and a growing range of social ties. To offer greater opportunity for business and community leaders to learn more about this dynamic region, Royal Roads University School of Business created an MBA specialization on Asia-Pacific Trade and Investment (APTI). This Continuing Studies educational opportunity allows alumni of the RRU MBA program who are not enrolled in the APTI specialization the chance to join the MBA APTI field residency in Tokyo and Shanghai from March 3-9, 2019 on a non-credit basis.

Participants in the Continuing Studies "Doing Business in Asia" tour will join RRU professors Charles Krusekopf and Jeff Kucharski and RRU MBA students as they visit with business and government leaders in Japan and China. Participants will join briefings on local business opportunities offered by both Canadian federal and BC Trade Commissioners, visit the offices and factories of leading international and local companies such as Toyota, Canadian Tire, Alibaba, McCains and others, and meet with local business and academic experts through specially organized events and presentations.

Participants will be fully immersed in the site visits and discussions together with students enrolled in the APTI specialization, but will not be eligible for academic credit. Students and alumni interested in receiving academic credit can contact the MBA program to discuss options for enrolment in the online courses associated with the APTI specialization. The Continuing Studies program includes an online session prior to departure together with suggested readings and background material and participation in the visit and discussions associated with the field study portion of the APTI program.

The travel tour is designed for participants interested in understanding business practices in the Asia Pacific region through firsthand experience; globally focused, culturally aware leaders building an awareness for the key regions, issues, and networks. This travel tour is ideal for those new to the region as well as for those with more experience.  Through a wide range of experiences and practical, applied learning, you will develop a robust understanding of the growing influence of Asia-based organizations and the increased flow of investment and talent to and from Asia.
