The objectives of the BCIT Business Field School are to expand the applied learning process both inside and outside of the classroom, providing enriching academic and cultural experiences. Summer Field School students participate in courses led by BCIT instructors, which are supplemented with international guest speakers and guided tours.
Students attending the Field School have the opportunity to receive credit for academic courses, learn about international business practices by visiting international companies, and ultimately, to be fully immersed in the culture by means of guided tours, activities, events, sports, and interaction with local people.
