Summer Abroad: South Africa

This is the sixth year of the University of Toronto’s summer program in South Africa. This program provides a unique opportunity for students in Commerce, Engineering or Social Science disciplines to gain hands-on experience in an emerging market and learn about the business challenges and opportunities at the base of the economic pyramid.

The program will be run in partnership with Reciprocity, a South-African-based consultancy. Reciprocity’s “Inclusive Consulting” program aims to provide students with business knowledge and field experience in emerging markets. Through a consulting mission with a township entrepreneur, students, organized in small teams, will gain a better understanding of doing business in low-income communities and the entrepreneurs will benefit from the business knowledge of the students.

There will be one course offered in South Africa in 2020.  This course is worth one full-year credit and is contingent on adequate enrolment.
