130710 nanyang-uni-students-AGSMMore than 35  students from Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore, have had the opportunity to learn from leading Australian Graduate School of Management (AGSM) academics during an inaugural visit to Australia as part of the university’s elective exchange program.

The visiting students are currently completing the Nanyang Business School EMBA and spent four days with the AGSM to gain an Australian perspective on economic, political and social relations between Australia and China.

Students attended classes covering Managerial Accounting and Australian Economy & the Asian Century, which featured senior industry and government players from Australian Trade Commission, Australia China Business Council, HSBC and Reserve Bank.

Students also had an opportunity to enjoy the famous sights of Sydney with a tour of the city and dinner on the Waterfront, before travelling onto Melbourne and Canberra to continue their Australian tour.

Professor Chris Styles, Deputy Dean of the Australian School of Business and Director of the AGSM said the AGSM is delighted to host students from one of the leading business schools in the Asia-Pacific.

“The AGSM’s global connections with universities like NTU are extremely valuable and cement the AGSM’s reputation and prominence in the Asia-Pacific region,” Professor Styles said. “We look forward to collaborating with NTU again in the near future and offering AGSM students further global opportunities with international business schools.”
