With Australia an attractive and highly sought after educational destination for many international students, consideration should be given to the difficulties experienced by this important student cohort. This paper aims to identify classroom teaching strategies and techniques that can assist in making study at an Australian university a more positive experience for international students from Non-English Speaking Backgrounds (NESBs).

Since 2002, a review of subjects taught in the Master of Business Administration (MBA) at the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) has resulted in significant changes to the nature and implications of quality assurance processes relating to the teaching and learning of MBA core units. In particular, efforts to achieve accreditation with the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) resulted in the development of key learning goals (KLGs) for each of the core units of the MBA which needed to be effectively integrated into a coherent set of KLGs for the overall program. The requirement to report on the assurance of KLGs provided a new quality assurance technique for this program.
