An enjoyable October week for a group of MBA students as they went on their Autumn Study Tour to Hokkaido.
During the tour, our MBA students learnt and experienced the different aspects of Japanese industries, their production processes as well as their history and culture.

Our students then spent time exchanging ideas and sharing insights with professors and graduate students from the University.
