The New Colombo Plan The New Colombo Plan is a signature Australian government initiative to develop Australian students' understanding of the Indo-pacific region. Through this grant, the University of Sydney Business School has secured funding to support 15 undergraduate Business students to participate in a short-term cultural and research immersion program to Singapore from 4 to 18 December 2017.
Program description In this short-term research program, you will spend two weeks in Singapore working in teams to understand and analyse an important demographic trend that impacts businesses, societies and markets. According to the United Nations, nearly every country is experiencing an ageing population and the ramifications this trend has on developed countries such as Singapore and Australia is multi-faceted and complicated.
