The participating students will be assigned to a specific organization in groups of four members. The teams will work closely together with the company and will continuously be supervised by senior staff members of VU University.

After determining the objectives, the consultants will proceed with preliminary research in the Netherlands, followed by field research in a foreign country. This period of field research includes interviews at a variety of companies, universities, governmental institutions and other entities of interest. All information and insights from the field research will be analyzed and reported. The research group will present their findings and deliver the final reports shortly after.

The upcoming expedition will cover a variety of subjects and markets in one yet to be chosen foreign country. Earlier editions have delivered reports that taught organizations about the various business opportunities and enabled companies to expand their activities overseas. Common to the earlier trips, this year’s delegation will work closely together with local governments, experts and consultants to ensure the quality of the outcome
