International Business Institute (IBI)
The International Business Institute is a ten week summer cooperative overseas program in international economics and business management. Students from other institutions are welcome but priority is given to the institutions that are affiliated with IBI.
The International Business Institute is designed to give students in economics, business management and related areas a distinctive opportunity for a term of study that incorporates the international dimension of these fields in an experiential context overseas. The program is ten weeks in length and includes periods of significant residence in key locations as well as coordinated visits and presentations in the major political and economic centers of Russia, Eastern Europe, Western Europe and the United Kingdom.
An essential purpose of this program is to encourage and facilitate the integration of academic study with the international field experience. The academic work is conducted in a variety of settings from the usual classroom to corporate headquarters, manufacturing plants, and the offices of governmental or international agencies.
Additional details are included with the Department of Business information in Chapter 7.
