A group of 22 did a one-week study tour to Greece, led by CEIBS Professor of Operations Management Nikos Tsikriktsis, which provided deep understanding of the country through lectures, company visits and cultural events. Others spent two days in Singapore where they met with senior executives during company visits to DHL, OCBC Bank, Unilever, Abbott and Deal.com in order to get a better understanding of job opportunities in the Singapore market. Also, around 40 students participated in the school's annual Hong Kong Career Trek. During a two-day period, the group visited Blackstone Group, UBS, the Hong Kong Asia Society, Credit Suisse, Bloomberg, China Merchants Capital, Rothschild, Baring Private Equity Asia, and BASF. During these company visits they had the chance to discuss job opportunities and the market environment with executives working in various areas, including investment banking, private banking, asset management, sales and trading, and business development.
