Student Projects: China, India, USA & ASEAN
Within the School of Business Bachelor Programmes, four unique international student projects are offered in the graduating year.
Final-year students from a number of faculties may apply to participate in Insight China, Focus India , connectUS or exploreASEAN. The seminars are organised by a student project team (supervised by FHNW professors) and involve a one-week preparatory seminar in Olten (intensive events, talks, lectures and discussions) and the two-week on-site seminar.
These seminars enable once-in-a-lifetime opportunities to meet successful business managers, other students or executives in a variety of organisations in one of these dynamic, fast growing economies.
Intercultural Business Seminar Week
The School of Business of the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Northwestern Swit-zerland FHNW offers its bachelor students in their final year the unique possibility to plan, organise and execute four international student projects. It is the primary goal of those projects to give students from different faculties, such as Business, Engineering, Life Sciences among others, the chance to get an insight into business operations and culture in an international context.
These projects build on two different blocks namely the Preparatory Seminar Week in Switzerland and an onsite-trip to a respective country or region with an interdisciplinary delegation.
As a part of the preparatory seminars of the international students projects an intensive seminar week “Intercultural Business Seminar Week” is built for international students.
Series of seminars, corporate visits enable once-in-a-lifetime opportunities to meet successful business managers, other students and executives in a variety of organisations in one of these dynamic, fast growing economies.
Additionally, the aim of the projects is to create an intercultural business context from which the participants can learn and share their background.
