Program: International Business Communication for Professionals

I took the IBCP at UPenn because of its excellent syllabus and exceptional teaching staff. My experience went beyond anything I had ever imagined. The program gave me a much deeper insight into the skills necessary to interact in today's professional global business world. Participating actively in negotiations and case studies, learning essential business writing skills, and cross-cultural expertise critical to successful meetings, were just some of the professional business tools that I learned during this robust program.

The University was very accomodating; there are ample resources at your disposal such as libraries and computer labs, in addition to the professors being on hand should you need any help. The classes were conveniently located at the center of the University which was full of students in regular attendance. Access to the rich resources of the Wharton School of Business community together with guest lectures, corporate visits and networking events was a highlight for me. You just don't get opportunities like that every day!

What made the program even more special was the social aspect of it. The sports facilities UPenn had to offer were top-class. In addition to attending regular lunch and dinner events with fellow students, I had the chance to go to a thrilling NBA game, take a trip to NYC and attend a superb jazz concert at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. All of these activities were organized by the University and included in the Program.

After participating, I got accepted into one of the top US Business Schools for an MBA, where I will be starting this June. The skills that I learned at IBCP were hugely beneficial for my final interviews as well as for the general application process.

Choosing IBCP at UPenn is a worthwhile decision that you won't regret!
