Note: Doing business in Asia can be challenging and may require quite a lot of stamina of you. This mission is certainly not a holiday. You will face emotional, practical, cultural and maybe even physical challenges during your mission. However, your reward will be a true life experience that is unparalleled by any other course of your study.
