Business studies school trips abroad

We offer a wide range of educational visits and tours to different cities and countries, tailor-made to support the curriculums for business and economics students.

For example, our business studies trips can include visits to large organisations and institutions, like the stock exchanges in Barcelona, Frankfurt and New York, as well as busy newspapers, TV towers, glass manufacturers, and even diamond factories.

A trip to Frankfurt or New York would see your business students explore one of the world’s most important financial centres, where they can learn about how and why these cities have become so important to the global economy.

Or you could visit Disneyland® Paris to discover the marketing behind the magic, or head to the other side of the world to see how Japan has become a world leader in innovation and technology.

For something a little different, why not head to Prague, where you can discover how the country’s economy has boomed since the fall of communism? In fact, the Czech Republic has been described as one of Europe’s most flourishing economies, with the lowest unemployment rate in the EU, making this a great destination in which to explore the important links between politics and economics.

There are some fantastic educational activities for you and your group to enjoy that will give your students the opportunity to gain a greater understanding of business models and practices, the power of marketing and the essentials of finance and human resources.

Experiencing this first-hand will not only help your students to better understand the theory taught in the classroom, but it will also provide them with tangible experiences that they’ll be able to recall during exams.

A business school trip will encourage your students to learn in dynamic and stimulating learning environments outside of the classroom, helping to boost their understanding of the subject and perhaps even inspire future career ambitions.

Why arrange a business studies school trip?

Explore important financial centres

You’ll be able to choose from a great range of destinations for your trip, including some of the world’s most important financial centres, such as Frankfurt, New York and Tokyo.

Frankfurt is home to both the European Central Bank and the Deutsche Bundesbank and is considered the financial capital of the Eurozone. As such, it should be no surprise that so many of the world’s top companies have their European headquarters based in the city. It is also home to one of the world’s largest stock exchanges.

Meanwhile, New York is considered the finance capital of the world and is home to Wall Street. Many Fortune 500 and Fortune 1000 companies have based themselves in the city, as have many of the world’s biggest banks, including Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley and JP Morgan.

Or you could head to Tokyo, the capital of the world’s third-largest economy and another important financial centre. Many of the world’s largest investment banks are based in the city. A highlight of your trip to Japan will be the Tokyo Stock Exchange, where your business studies students can take part in a game where they simulate trading stocks!

Learn more about brands

If you’re looking for educational tours where your students can learn more about the development of brands, the importance of innovation, research and development or even global marketing strategies, then we’ve got plenty of options for you.

You could choose to visit Paris, where you can visit a variety of businesses, from a local bakery to Charles de Gaulle Airport.

You could even pop over to Europe’s biggest theme park, Disneyland® Paris to enjoy a specialist workshop and learn more about the Disney brand and how it’s marketed. Pupils will also learn about the corporate structure and the various roles within the organisation.

Or in Barcelona, you can visit a variety of well-known brands, from wineries and breweries to newspapers and even footballing behemoth FC Barcelona!

Enjoy the trip as much as your students

Originally founded by former teachers, and with many former teachers still among us, we understand the value of business studies school trips and how to make them successful.

Your trip will be completely tailor-made, to ensure that it meets your specific requirements and learning objectives. And we’ll be on hand throughout the process to answer any questions you have.

In fact, we’ll be with you every step of the way, from now until you return home at the end of your trip. While abroad, you’ll be able to reach us with just one phone call, at any time of the day or night. And, with this comprehensive level of support while you’re away, you’ll be able to relax and enjoy experiencing business studies as much as your students.
