Visiting FSB students at the GSB on Statham Campus.

The University of the South Pacific’s (USP) Graduate School of Business (GSB) welcomed MBA students from the Federated Business School (FBS), Federation University, Australia on 17 & 19 September, 2019.

Led by Mr. Robert Errey, Lecturer in Marketing, FBS, the six post-graduate students of FBS were awarded Australian Government’s study tour scholarships to share their Australian experiences and learn Fiji’s socio economic and cultural diversity.

Apart from field experiences in Nadi, Sigatoka and Pacific Harbour, visiting students also gave special guest lectures to GSB’s MBA students.

One group of visiting students shared Australian experiences on “Circular Economy” to the students of MBA 434 (South Pacific Business Environment) and its relevance to the Pacific and Fiji in particular. The focus of the presentation was on eliminating waste and minimising use of resources. GSB students shared some of the practical examples in Fiji as well.

The second group of students spoke on Social Entrepreneurship to GSB’s MBA 421 (Entreprenurship and Innovation) cohort. One visiting student who is active with a group on “Women Against Waste,” shared her experiences as a social entrepreneur which has gained momentum nationally in Australia.

Students from both GSB and FSB shared some common experiences on social enterprises existing in Fiji and Australia.

Feedback from both GSB and FSB students were that the learning experiences were positive and similar visits to gain international exposure of good practices were encouraged.

USP’s Graduate School of Business will continue to build relationships, understanding and goodwill with renowned universities around the globe.
