I am so excited because I have been nominated for a wonderful opportunity to attend a student Business and Entrepreneurship Delegation in China in May 2018, with other business and economics major students from all over the world!!
This prestigious programme is facilitated by the International Scholar Laureate Programme (ISLP) and is by invitation only - I was invited because I am in the top 15% (of academics) in my degree, and am a member of the international Golden Key Honour Society.
I have no doubt that this experience would be very beneficial in furthering my knowledge of the working world as well as international communications and dealings, to aid me for the remainder of my studies and in developing myself for my career.
Some programme, itinerary and learning outcome highlights include:
-assembling into multi-cultural teams to complete a final project upon meeting with various influential businessmen, leading academics and local students.
-networking and cultural exchange with local citizens at the English corner at the People's University
-presentations by leading international companies on:
-emerging markets opportunities, challenges of conducting international business, fostering creative and collaborative climates for 21st century entrepreneurs, social entrepreneurship and corporate responsibility
The breakdown of the programme costs are:
- Programme: USD 3,495
- Flights: ~R10,000
- Visa: ~R500
- Miscellaneous ~R6,500
The US dollar is very strong so I would appreciate your help very much!
