    I liked the program, all the experience was excellent, I just have a comment, that it could be better if there are students of more different coutries, most of our my classmates were chinesse, they were awesome in fact, but I consider that the experience wil be richer if there are more different cultures.

    There´s not much more to say except that attending the summer programme of Peter B. Gustavson School of Business proved to be one of the best things I´ve ever done. Not only did I make amazing friends and got to know Canada and its people better, but I also learned how to think differently and approach things in a way I wouldn´t have done before. I learned more in one month at this university than I did at my home university in two semesters. I can highly recommend this programme to everyone interested in improving their (working) lives. It was one of the best summers I´ve ever had.

    I joined the ISIBM programm in July 2011. Today, a few years after, I still think back quite often of this unforgettable experience. There was simply nothing I didn't like. Canada is an amazing country with great cities and lovely nature, that's first thing you see when you arrive in Vancouver airport and Victoria. My friend Sebastiaan and I were welcomed after our long journey and accompanied to our comfortable, spacious accommodation. The classes were very fun and interactive with students from all over the world. Besides business knowledge, you learn a lot about culture and communication. My English speaking was also greatly improved during this program. The program after class was filled with many great activities. Whale watching, an Island tour, visiting great parks and enjoying the party life in the Victoria downtown, so really varying. All the staff and classmates were very friendly and helpfull, and I made friends for life. In conclusion, it was an experience I will keep thinking of very often, with a smile on my face :-).

    It was an enjoyable experience.
    Great working some smart world class professors:
    Brian Leacock
    Brock Smith
    Brent Mainprize
    Steve Tax
    Mark Colgate
    Josh Ault
    Sudhir Nair

    the coordinators were amazing and very well informed about the city. They planned very enjoyable activities throughout the program
    In general I would recommend this program to any serious business or management student. Definitely the best summer program in the West Coast of Canada.

    It has been a challenging experience and an opportunity to develop cross-cultural awareness. Moreover thanks to the class activities I could have improved my public speaking skills. In addition ISIBM is a great opportunity to learn something more about Canada and British Columbia in particular thanks to the class and extra activities.
