college business students prepare for netherlands tour

Eleven students from Lethbridge Community College’s Business Administration program will travel to the Netherlands this month as part of a course in International Business.

From February 18 to 27, 11 students from LCC’s Business Administration program will tour the Netherlands as part of an International Business course.

The students, led by LCC instructors, Carolyn Clark, John Russell and Ray Ault, will be hosted by faculty and students from ROC Midden-Brabant College Economie in Tilburg,a medium-sized city in south-central Netherlands.

Four representatives from the Lethbridge and District Community Futures Development Corporation will also accompany the LCC contingent. In exchange for some financial support towards the trip, Community Futures has contracted with the students to assist in researching business opportunities in the Netherlands.

Students and faculty from the Tilburg institution have made two previous visits to LCC in the past. This is the first time LCC students are making a return visit. Also, in the past two years six ROC students have completed work experience placements with Lethbridge businesses.

On the way to Tilburg, the students will try to get a flavour of European business as much as possible. After landing in London, England, they will tour Harrod’s, one of the world’s largest retail stores and then travel through the Chunnel to Brussels, Belgium, to see the European Union Parliament Buildings.

While in Tilburg, the students will tour the city and visit a number of local businesses as well as have a guided tour of Rotterdam Harbour, one of the world’s largest seaports.

Tilburg has a long history of textile production and students will see current textile operations and a museum dedicated to the textile industry. In between students will attend classes with their Dutch colleagues. The LCC group will be billeted by ROC students and faculty. The students depart from Amsterdam for return to Lethbridge on February 27.
