The Student Affairs Office organized an “Overseas Study Programme” during the summer vacation, to increase students’ academic opportunities and widen their horizons, with 22 students from different faculties engaging in a three-week study programme at Monash University in Australia.
Through a three-week career preparation course students developed their English proficiency in a business context as well as enriching their negotiation skills and critical thinking. In addition to having lessons students visited Dairy Innovation Australia Limited, CPA Australia (Certified Practicing Accountants) and Ford manufacturing plant to expand their knowledge of differences in business practice between an Australian and international workplace, that will assist them in their future career. During the programme students also learnt more about the local culture and significance of the city and improved their cultural awareness, communication skills and workplace skills. Further enhancing their cultural exchange experience, students from Hitotsubashi University, Nagoya University, Mie University and Shanghai Ocean University joined the programme and all the students learned together.
The participants found the programme very fruitful and thanked MPI for providing this opportunity for them to enjoy such memorable learning experiences, to meet friends from around the world and to widen their horizons. Many participating students said that they would now like to further their study abroad after graduation.
