  • understand the own values and beliefs of members of other cultures through interaction with them
  • learn to become independent, flexible and mature
  • improve their language skills through immersion in a foreign language environment
  • make friends with people from different cultural and social backgrounds
  • add a global dimension to their university life, which potential employers may value

We have outbound exchange places at (1) Institutional Level, open to full-time undergraduates; and (2) Faculty of Business Level, open ONLY to application by Faculty of Business students.
