University of Colorado Colorado Springs and International Business Seminars proudly present an opportunity of a lifetime!
While traveling through Europe on a short term winter or summer study abroad opportunity, students will participate in lecture-discussion sessions with executives of various multinational corporations, local business firms, government agencies, etc.
The overall purpose of the International Business Seminars Program is to allow participants to be exposed to international business practices outside the United States. Participants are also given an insight into the cultural, social and political environments of each country visited. This is a unique opportunity for individuals who are interested in pursuing a career in international business, or related fields, to acquire a first-hand view of international business practices while experiencing the excitement of traveling abroad.
Participants in the International Business Seminars Program will investigate business policy, strategy and structure in an international context. The seminars emphasize marketing and management functions and can be taken for 3 semester units of upper-division undergraduate (INTB 4610) or graduate business credit (INTB 6910). For MBA students, the credit could be applied toward an International Business Emphasis or as an Elective. Non-business majors may also be able to take the course for credit as an elective.
I thought the IBS experience was wonderful. The logistics were remarkably well planned and the caliber of people that we met with was most impressive. I walked away from the experience itching to tour more companies the next time I go on vacation.

I've just returned on Saturday from the Winter II trip. It was an amazing and informative experience and I highly recommend it to other students! Being chosen to ring the bell to open the Paris NYSE was among many highlights of the trip.
