International Exchange Programmes

MYRAcles-at-Catolica-2014a“Exchange programmes help break down barriers, bring people from diverse nations closer together, and allow for a shared common experience, reminding us that at some level we are all connected, not just in the world of business and commerce, but in life itself”.

Fatima Barros, President, Anacom, Portugal





We are living in a global world that is highly networked with each other and provides immense opportunities to share or review resources and skills, evaluate ideas, and monitor work among each other.  International exposure, better understanding of the global market place and the ability to appreciate different cultures are a perquisite for today’s global managers.   Many employers in India too prefer to hire students with an international exposure, a global business perspective and who can work with ease with their foreign counterparts.

The International Student Exchange Programs at the MYRA School of Business are based on a vision to provide a greater understanding of cross-cultural trade and business practices and to promote cultural interchange of ideas. Our exchange partner schools offer the opportunity to learn about business from a different perspective, experience another culture, and network with students, faculty, and professionals from around the world. These alliances present an excellent opportunity for students to live and study in various nations and gain a deeper understanding of international business dynamics.

The Study-Abroad Programs at the MYRA School of Business are thus based on a vision to provide a greater understanding of cross-cultural trade and business practices and to promote cultural interchange of ideas. These programs are designed to help students meet this marketplace requirement.
