Crawford School's Executive education gives you access to a diverse range of short courses, Masterclasses and tailored or bespoke programs developed for Government. Courses are delivered by world-class experts drawn from experienced public service practitioners or academics and researchers of international repute.

A new intensive study tour will give participants the chance to completely immerse themselves in China in the company of some of the world's greatest experts on the country.

The China 360° Immersion Study Tour Program – offered through Crawford School Executive Education - aims to give participants a deeper understanding and appreciation of China’s history, culture, governance, economics, strategic policy, business culture, and environmental sustainability policies. Participants will find out about these things through first hand experiences, accompanied by leading China scholars.

“Through China 360°, participants will gain an appreciation of China's realities, ambiguities and uncertainties and these deeper insights will help participants gain an awareness of China's likely approaches to the challenges that confront it,” said Director of Executive Education at Crawford School of Public Policy Exmond De Cruz.

“Participants in the China 360° Study Tour Program will develop mental models that will help them make sense of the deep-seated social and cultural attitudes that influence contemporary policy, behaviour and actions in the country.”

While in the country, participants will experience face-to-face encounters with Chinese citizens of all backgrounds, from bankers to bureaucrats, academics to policy analysts.

“They will have numerous opportunities to engage, empathise, criticise, ponder, evaluate and share in reflective peer group dialogue sessions,” said De Cruz.

Leading experts involved in the program include Professor Geremie Barme of the Australian Centre on China in the World at ANU, Mr John Garnaut, Beijing-based Asia Economics Correspondent for The Age and Sydney Morning Herald, Director of the Centre for Climate Economics and Policy Associate Professor Frank Jotzo and former China ambassador Dr Geoff Raby.

“Learning will be expertly facilitated by some of the world's leading sinologists, China observers and analysts who will generously share their nuanced insights and knowledge,” said De Cruz.

The program will go from 18 to 25 May 2013 and visit Beijing, Chongqing and Shanghai. The tour will cost AUD $ 13,640 per participant. Registration closes Monday 8 April 2013.
