The IPBS Virtual Mobility Programme

In the face of time where student mobility has stalled, and students are unable to study abroad in a traditional sense. With COVID-19 impacting business and school around the world, the International Partnership of Business Schools (IPBS) is pleased to offer the first ever Virtual Mobility Programme. This programme offers students from participating schools a chance to engage globally with students and faculty at partner schools as they enrol in an online course at another school.

Courses will primarily be taught in a synchronous method allowing exchange students to work with and engage with local students and faculty in real time. Students enrolling in this pilot programme will be registered as exchange students thus allowing you to take the course without paying the partner school.

Key Features

Frequently Asked Questions

Will I earn credit at my home institution by taking one of these courses?
Yes, you will earn credit. Upon completion of the course, you will receive a transcript from the partner university which your home institution will use to transfer the credit back. Please check with your home institution for specific requirements and instructions.

How much will this cost?
Since you will be participating as an exchange student, you will pay your normal tuition and fees at your home institution. You will not have to pay tuition or fees at the partner school. But, you will need to purchase textbooks and/or other educational materials as required by the professor teaching the course.

I have questions, who should I contact?
