On Day 2 of the trip, students will visit the business department of a local university. They’ll have the opportunity to take a tour of the campus, before breaking off into discussion groups with students from the university. This visit invites students and their Japanese counterparts to view their studies from a fresh perspective and to hone their ideas by sharing them.
After the university visit, students will head over to the Tokyo branch of The World Bank. Here, they’ll listen to a talk given by a manager from the office’s Social Innovation team, which will be followed by a Q&A session. This experience will introduce students to the working environment of a major international financial institution while giving them the chance to pick the brains of an expert.
On Day 5 of the trip, students will travel across the country via bullet train to Hiroshima, for a visit to the Mazda car factory. Students will be able to see the technical department and assembly line in action, before learning about the company’s history at the factory’s museum.
On Day 7 of the trip, students will visit a business incubator which provides office working spaces, strategic advice and funding for various start-up companies. Students will be split into groups and have a chance to develop their own start-up idea and prepare a pitch for funding.
