INFS3020 
is an intensive, 6 UoC UG course providing Information Systems (IS) students with the opportunity to further their knowledge and understanding of the international aspects of IS and IT (Information Technology) in a business context. This is facilitated through first-hand observations of businesses in an international environment. In 2019, the study tour will be a two-week field trip to China. Students will be provided with exciting opportunities to experience China and learn how IS/IT-enabled business, in particular e-business, systems differ across national boundaries. Students will visit organisations operating in the IS/IT sector in the Chinese market as well as other organisations across a number of sectors with a significant IS/IT footprint. Field trips to important cultural landmarks and sights will provide students with a unique opportunity to learn about the local culture.
