who we are

A award winning educational travel consultancy specialising in the design and organisation of international immersion programs for business schools and their executives.

Our mission is to help connect and inspire future leaders by exploring the world of business - and hearing how companies and entrepreneurs are creating change. We believe that sharing experiences makes for a more meaningful and powerful way to learn, and the best way to appreciate the real issues which corporates, politicians and entrepreneurs are facing every day is by hearing from them directly.

Our co-founders, both EMBA graduates, met in China on an immersion program and immediately connected on a shared vision: “to create a dynamic company that helps leading business schools build ‘lifetime experiences’ for their students.”

Together, they developed an inspiring and rewarding suite of global immersion programs — practical experiences which quickly became the best part of an MBA students’ project and possessed the ability to transform their perspectives on management and leadership.

What began with a focus on 3 destinations and a handful of business school partners, has since expanded into a global organisation with a network in over 40 countries – shaping the business perspectives of over 7,000 students. We call this our community – the stories and shared experiences of which continue to humble and inspire us every day. By helping us to see the world in new ways, our community drives us to keep creating the most awesome and innovative immersion programs possible.
