Field Trips and Industrial visits

 

Practical experience is built into the economics curriculum, which is called “Field Trip”( Bihiweda Charikawa).   These experiences offers students an opportunity to integrate and apply their academic knowledge in a real-world setting and prepares them for the responsibility of beginning professional practice.

At least one field trip will be organized as an integral part of the learning experience of the degree programme .  The field trip is an essential component of  the degree programme since it gives the students practice in  conducting  survey work in the field and prepares them for later independent work on their projects.

Industrial visit is a also part of the degree program, during which students visit companies and get insight regarding the internal working environment of a company and how a company functions, as well as useful information related to the practical aspects of the curriculum which cannot be visualized in lectures.
