The Rutgers School of Business–Camden (RSBC) offers a study program on doing business in South Africa. The program highlight is a 12-day study trip over Spring Break to South Africa, where we visit businesses and government institutions to learn more about management and marketing practices in this region.
The course is open to MBA and undergraduate business students (30 total), by application. Admitted students will earn their choice of three marketing or management credits.
“If you are thinking about taking the South Africa course and trip I have one piece of advice – stop thinking and DO IT! Learning about business culture in other countries from a book is one thing, but to have the chance to be completely immersed in it is an experience beyond comparison. The South Africa course and trip could stand by itself as a reason to major in Business at Rutgers – Camden.
You will get to witness firsthand how much influence a business can have on its surrounding community. On the trip you will learn the importance of corporate responsibility and the unique challenges of operating a multinational business. It will open your eyes to the possibility of an international business career and give you a chance to learn about business culture in another country – all while having an amazing time. You can’t visit South Africa and come back without it on your list of top 5 favorite places. It is an experience you will never forget.”

“If I could turn back time and do one thing over, it would be that week, that trip, and those experiences. I learned so much about life, business, and emerging economies and how they fuel global growth. I learned that companies that don’t focus on the triple bottom line and the base of the pyramid will not succeed in the future. I witnessed first hand a society torn by segregation, a people subjected to years of oppression, and the human struggle to overcome it all and move forward. It was inspiring.”
