Student Testimonials

"This experience was incredible. I was able to see and do things not available to ordinary people on vacation, including visiting neat businesses and learning about the ways that they conduct business. This aspect enriched our learning experience by having the opportunity to see and learn with our own eyes. I will forever be changed by this experience and have a great appreciation for the BCIT faculty for hosting such a wonderful trip. Thank you again!"
~ Andrea, BBA Student

"The ability to connect with people, understand cultural norms and communicate through non-verbal cues can play a major factor in engaging and maintaining global partnerships. I strongly encourage all students to participate and immerse themselves into this program. The long lasting relationships, unforgettable memories and an appreciation of the world is what I have gained through this program."
