"Working with BBT students from Japan for our Effective Negotiations and Cross Cultural Management subjects was an enriching experience. We participated in a host of class exercises and activities that let us better understand and appreciate cultural diversity in business, learn a variety of negotiation strategies and tactics and engage is some really interesting discussions. Fellow BBT students were kind, personable and full of knowledge, which made for a wonderful experience! Show more

Bond University is a great place to study and completing the BBT program is highly recommended. I’ve gained a great appreciation for students visiting Australia for the first time to study in another language and encourage both Japanese and domestic students to complete the BBT program. It is both personally and professionally rewarding." Show less
