CURTIN Business School and Stanford University have signed a three-year Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) that will enable students like Leeming’s Michelle Zinko to complete the Stanford International Honours Program.

Under the agreement, Curtin Business School will nominate five to 15 high achieving students each year to take part in the intensive, eight-week honours level program in Stanford, California.

Curtin Business School Acting Pro Vice-Chancellor Professor Nigel de Bussy said the Curtin Business School was one of only 22 education institutions across the world to sign an MOA with Stanford University.

“This agreement with Stanford offers Curtin Business School students the opportunity of a lifetime to study abroad for eight weeks at one of the most prestigious universities in the United States,” Prof de Bussy said.

“For the inaugural cohort, we have selected seven of Curtin Business School’s brightest students to complete the Stanford International Honours Program.

“These students will gain an extraordinary insight into the internationalisation of business education, ensuring they receive a global dimension to their studies at Curtin University.”

From June 24, the inaugural cohort will start the Stanford International Honours Program in California.

Students will be required to study eight units at Stanford University over the eight-week period, as well as taking part in cultural and extra-curricular activities.
