Our programs are customised for our clients and include high impact business study tours and consultancy projects 

Legacy designs business study tours to emerging and frontier markets such as China, India, Brazil, UAE, South Africa that allow participants to immerse themselves in the business and cultural environment. Our service is by no means exhaustive, as our clients invariably call upon us to expose them to new destinations.

International study tours

Each tour takes participants on an intensive exploration of a country’s business practices, challenges and cultures, using seminars from elite academics, business meetings with top executives and consultancy projects as the ideal setting for practical in-country experiences.

Our programs focus on learning through meetings with industry and regional market experts, peer dialogues, onsite business visits, cultural encounters and high-level interactive panel discussions.  Sessions are usually conducted in English, however, simultaneous and sequential translation will be provided as necessary. A typical one week program includes:

  • 1 or 2 academic sessions with local business schools
  • 8 to 10 company visits / interactions with business leaders
  • 1 or 2 cultural experiences
  • 1 or 2 dinners or social events

Consultancy projects

Through our wide international network we can assist you in organising short consultancy projects with local companies which will put to test theories, frameworks and concepts the MBA participants learned in class. We collaborate with local companies in generating project ideas. We liaise with business schools to ensure the projects meet academic standards. We gather feedback from companies to ensure an efficient and relevant service.

Customised content

We custom each tour with a blend of academic sessions, presentations from leading executives and site visits with practical learning to address your organisation’s specific requests. Through our global network, we have forged relationships with local business schools and leading companies in each destination to deliver a compelling and high quality content to each study tour 

We work as a partnership, leveraging collaboration to create an effective experience for all participants. We advice clients on best learning content to suit participants and source company visits and presentations with key speakers that match specific themes and industries.

Some programs can explore a chosen market broadly while others focus on a specific theme such as:

  •  Technology, digital innovation and startups
  •  Healthcare management and systems
  •  Leadership and transformation
  •  Social entrepreneurship and social innovation
  •   Investment banking and private equity
