Participate in an undergraduate study tour at one of Hult’s international campuses
Experience the world by participating in an undergraduate study tour at one of Hult’s campuses in Shanghai, Dubai, San Francisco, or Boston. Study tours give Hult students the opportunity to take advantage of Hult’s global campus network and compliment their business studies with firsthand knowledge about life and business in one of the world’s major economic centers.
Each year Hult offers a six-week study program during the Spring term, enabling students to take classes specific to their travel destination on themes ranging from language to culture to the economy. Move your studies from the financial hub of London to a key economic location on another continent– adding global context to your business studies and allowing you to engage in a truly eye-opening experience.
2012 Undergraduate Study Tour: Shanghai
China’s ascendancy as a global superpower centers on Shanghai—for international business, new trends, and groundbreaking ideas. Last year, Hult undergraduates traveled to Shanghai to study Chinese culture and language at Hult Shanghai, experiencing this rapidly expanding and evolving market firsthand and witnessing the contrast between East and West.
Students on the Shanghai Study Tour benefited from learning international business in a global setting and seeing how the
business knowledge and theory they learned in class plays out in the real world, with a Chinese context. Students adapted to living in a new culture—from learning how to navigate a new city to trying cuisines from all different parts of Asia, from visiting Chinese cultural venues to exploring exciting Shanghai nightlife.
Learning Mandarin—the most widely spoken language in the world—while living in China gave students daily opportunities to practice their new language skills with locals. To apply cultural knowledge gained during the study tour after returning to London, the students completed an emerging markets economics overview and an Action Project revolving around the topic of free speech.
Experience a new culture without disrupting your studies
During the study tour, there are 6 credits available from two courses, which could be a language course and an interdisciplinary course involving an Action Project. Upon your return to London, two additional, intensive five-week courses are offered, to allow you to complete the full four courses (worth 12 credits) during the Spring term. At least one Hult professor from the London campus will accompany students to deliver course content, providing a more seamless academic experience during the study tour.
Hult’s program of classes is complemented with an exciting range of activities, distinguished speakers, company visits, and excursions during your study tour.
