img A group of more than 20 business postgraduate students embarked on a 5-day Brunei business study tour organised by the Global Engagement Section, School of Business, and its international postgraduate student club “Hive”, from 31st December, 2023 to 4th January, 2024. The students got a unique opportunity to engage with Brunei's local culture through activities involving discussions and idea exchanges with students from the School of Business and Economics at Universiti Brunei Darussalam.

Beyond the classroom, the group also visited two notable organisations in Brunei. One of these was Shell LiveWIRE Brunei, a flagship social investment initiative by Shell, dedicated to fostering sustainable businesses and contributing to Brunei's economy. The students were impressed by Shell LiveWIRE Brunei's support for thousands of entrepreneurs in developing sustainable small and medium enterprises (SMEs). Another organisation they visited was the Nisai Group, known for its online learning platform and commitment to creating a supportive learning community, providing students with opportunities to advance in their chosen pathways, whether it be further education, higher education, or employment.

Additionally, the students trekked through the ULU Temburong National Park. This experience blended the beauty of nature with the principles of sustainable business practices. By witnessing the significance of environmental consciousness firsthand, students gained insights into the intersection of business studies and responsible decision-making, further enriching their understanding of green finance and sustainability.

The 5-day Brunei business study tour was a positive learning experience for the group. These immersive experiences have fuelled the students’ commitment to driving social innovations and sustainable development within the business sector.
