UBI Business School has developed strong ties with worldwide academic institutions and corporate partners, providing our students with unique, innovative and top of the range experiences in selected international financial centres.
We partner with world renowned institutions such as the London School of Economics and Babson College in curating UBI’s International Business Experience.
As an invaluable element of UBI’s programmes, the International Business Experience complements students’ learning through workshops provided by these prestigious academic institutions and first hand exposure of the inner workings of international companies thanks to our global corporate partners.
Beyond these opportunities, UBI also organises optional business immersion trips to Singapore or Shanghai each year.
UBI-LSE International Business Experience @ London
As part of the 7-day international business experience trip in London, UBI students have the privilege to attend a series of intensive masterclasses organised by LSE IDEAS at the prestigious London School of Economics. These sessions allow students to gain invaluable insights and critical perspectives in topics ranging from business in society, to global net zero transition.
Furthermore, students have the opportunity to visit, interact, and meet key figures within industries in which the UK are amongst the global leaders: education (LSE IDEAS), insurance & reinsurance (Lloyd’s of London), international manufacturing (Wolverine Worldwide), international sport (England Rugby), and free speech (The Guardian Foundation).
In 2023, our partner, Wolverine Worldwide, sponsored the experience for our women MBA students to support their transformation into forces of change.
UBI-EAE International Business Experience @ Singapore
In partnership with EAE Business School’s Global Executive MBA (GEMBA) programme, UBI organises an annual nine-day experience in Singapore, for participants to experience a first-hand immersion to one of the leading global financial centres in Asia.
The 9-day experience comprises a combination of in-class seminars, industrial site-visits, and professional networking opportunities. Sessions are anchored by senior or c-suite executives, as well as founders of notable start-ups and technological ventures in the region.
The overall experience aims to deepen participants’ understanding of global business dynamics through the lens of Asia, offering insights in particular to the emerging issues relevant to global citizenship, logistics/supply-chain and sustainability.
