The International Business Experience (IBE) provides an immersive, holistic approach to teaching and learning. It is not only conceptual knowledge but also experiential knowledge that provides the necessary skills to become a global leader.
During this course, students will hear from industry leaders, government officials, business professionals, and academic experts. Business visits are supplemented by social visits to NGO and NFP organisations, giving students exposure to the varying lifestyles and the social fabric of the country.
The format consists of a pre-departure online component followed by an 8-day immersion in the business, cultural and social aspects of the cities and countries visited. Being able to identify and capitalise on opportunities is something that cannot be learned without being exposed more intensely to the new global business environment.
"There is no better way to experience the cultural and social contexts which influence how businesses operate abroad than to visit one of the destination countries. The AGSM international study tours enrich the MBA experience, broaden one's perspective and create lasting memories"

"My IBSA China and HK trip was experiential learning at its best. The trip opened my eyes to the multi-layered and interwoven challenges that businesses and individuals face in doing business in China and the various support mechanisms available to assist"
