International Exchange Experience | AGSM @ UNSW Business School


AGSM provided me this incredible opportunity I got to experience two world-class MBA programs, within one 16 month program. There’s only so much you can learn inside the classroom. When you step outside the building, meet new people, experience more cultures, the exchange program allows you to do exactly that. So from the moment I realised this option was available, it was a no-brainer for me. I chose Stern School of Business, primarily for its location in New York. I really wanted to have an American school behind me as well as AGSM. I decided to go to Tuck Business School, at Dartmouth College, in the United States. It offered certain subjects that I couldn’t find in a lot of places. I decided to do certain courses like Supply Chain, do other courses like Corporate Communication, which were learned during watching the Superbowl ads. I love the Italian culture, the history, and I always wanted to live in a non-english speaking nation. I actually figured out what I wanted to do post my MBA, on my exchange period. And then I was able to solidify my plan. I was lucky enough to go to Madrid, Spain, and study at IE. From a career perspective, IE positioned me to really find my passions of finance and entrepreneurship. And those two things really tie together what I have done at AGSM, and really give me a step forward when I start applying for jobs. Going over to NYU was great because it was a great melting pot to meet a whole bunch of other students. About half a dozen of us decided to fly down to Dallas, during spring break and then do a road trip. Tuck also hosts another event where it invites people from different business schools. I’ve had the chance to experience good connections and good friendships. There are so many ideas floating around, all over the world. Going on exchange lets you absorb all these ideas, and that was very rewarding. You got to establish a whole new network, and I had an explosion of my network of 400 new, brilliant students from all around the world. After my experience, I believe it should be a must.
