We take you on a two-week tour to an EmergingMarket

While there, we take youinside local and international organizations to see what it’s like to work and live in that country. You take a basic language class and business etiquette class. You network with locals and hear their stories. You discover why the country’s economy is emerging. You learn cross-cultural skills that are relevant to the job market.

At the same time, you will be exploring the destination’s most exciting hot-spots, nightlife, and instagrammable attractions.

Arrive at your Destination

You’ll meet up with the rest of your group flying in from different parts of Canada. Your group’s tour guide will meet you and get you settled into your hotel. EMP Tour Guides are highly-rated and have unique insights into the cities that you’ll be visiting.

Cultural Integration Activities

Within the first few days of your tour, you’ll take part in a beginner language course and a business etiquette course. These sessions will help you gain a deeper understanding of the culture so that you can seamlessly navigate interactions on your trip!

Expand Your Network

You’ll meet with locals to hear their stories and learn about their reality. You’ll network with business professionals and gain insights into the country you’re visiting. You’ll also meet ambitious Canadians just like YOU within your group!

Visit Local and International Organizations

We bring you exclusively inside local and international businesses. Each company visit is interactive and unique, such as a factory tour of Bombardier’s train assembly line in China, a presentation on the Canada-India relations at the local High Commission, or a wine testing at Cape Point Vineyards while learning about the South African wine industry. These interactive activities are tangible experiences that employers back home love to hear about. You’ll visit 5-7 organizations on your trip.

Destination Activities

When you’re not visiting local companies or learning the culture, your guide will take you to local hotspots and must-see attractions. Nothing is better after a busy day of networking than strolling along The Bund in Shanghai, exploring the picturesque Walled City in Cartagena, or snapping photos at the Taj Mahal! You’ll also have free time to explore the city on your terms – the perfect blend of business and leisure!
