IES Abroad educates students to become global leaders through premier study abroad and internship programs, which offer students worldwide experiential learning opportunities that set the highest standards of academic quality.

IES Abroad’s first international program launched in 1950 with its first Asian centre, the Nagoya centre, opening in 1986. The COVID-19 border closures has allowed for IES Abroad to innovatively engage with our Japanese based sister organisation (the Study Abroad Foundation – SAF) to create virtual programming in Business and Sports Management.

IES Sydney is looking to expand these virtual programs (and in country experiences) to Australian students wanting Japanese cultural  and business skills and looks forward to engaging with the AJBCC network to further enhance its Japanese relationships.
