Students’ specialisation and travel experiences

“The week in Singapore was exceptional, with world-class guests on campus, visits to several companies, and the opportunity to listen to young entrepreneurs pitching their ideas at Finlab. All in all, the track gives you a unique perspective on leadership, as well as the tools to lead and find alternative approaches in a constantly changing world."

Javier Garcia Royo, MBA ‘16, Mexico

“The Finance Track learning expedition is an excellent opportunity to meet and learn with recognized professionals from all over the world. I just arrived back from London, where we had really interesting lectures with impressive professionals and visits to Credit Suisse and BNP Paribas.”

Luciana Mendes, MBA ‘16, Brazil

“I chose the Digital Innovation Track because it covers key concepts and strategies to manage innovation and digital transformation. We focussed on the education sector, an area that I wanted to move into post-MBA so for me it was an excellent learning and development opportunity.”

Claudia Carrone, MBA ‘18, Argentina

"The learning expedition to San Francisco as part of the Entrepreneurship Track was an amazing experience. We had the opportunity to meet and interact with over 20 companies and organisations from each part of the start-up ecosystem. The whole track was a fantastic real-life learning experience."

Renato Figueroa, MBA ‘19, Peru

Sustainable Development

Considering environmental and social impact is no longer just an option for businesses today, it’s a duty. Thanks to a close partnership with the University of Stellenbosch Business School, you’ll be delving in detail into the business of sustainability.

  • Real case studies with local entrepreneurs
  • Lectures and presentations from USB professors

During your trip, you’ll learn first-hand about South Africa’s unique social, economic, political, and business environment, a microcosm of today's major world challenges experienced in The Mother City.
