  • review14Having worked in the international banking sector in Pakistan for many years I found the practical approach to Mr. O’Brien’s school and the clear content of the CD ROMS and Online Sessions to be of great value. I recommend this programme to anyone working working with Importers, Exporters and in International Banking in general. The support from the Online Campus is second to none!

  • review7For me the best part of the programme was the interaction between the participants from the various professional disciplines of international trade, including exporters, importers, bankers, forwarders, marketeers, customs and other professionals. This blending of structured interactive content with online tutorials from highly experienced practitioners develops a network of trade contacts that lasts long after completion of the programme.

  • testibokoI am currently undertaking the international trade specialist course delivered by elearning by the electronic business school of Ireland. It so far I can say that I like the course materials and the online support structure which allows me to fit my learning in when it is convenient for me. This is especially important for me given my many tasks in Nigerian Export Import Bank and other activities. I find the Finance course especially practical since I can post technical questions on forums and receive replies from ICC experts.

  • “The eBSI course I followed changed my mind about remote learning; unlike some of the boring, largely unmotivating training I had taken previously, I found this course very stimulating and it encouraged me to delve even more into the complex area of global trade. Though I have never met Thomas personally, I feel I know him well through the interactive sessions and easy telephone/email access when and as needed. He comes across as a dynamic person, very knowledgeable in his area and who constantly strives to enrich and improve the approach to remote learning

  • test_ifetiniucThe ITS Accreditation was very beneficial for upgrading my business skills. I have got an Executive MBA in 1998, and I was looking for a certified program in the field of international trade that should be comprehensive, of high quality, with top faculties available anytime for whatever questions you might get in your project work, or training sessions. The eBSI was the right school for me. I was exciting to observe and take part in the creation of an international mindset. I had fun, every on-line session I spent enriched me with good business knowledge and understanding of people and cultures.
