“It was a great experience. I toured amazing companies and got the opportunity to meet great people”

– University of North Carolina, Winter MBA 2015 Alumni

“Everyone should do this! I still, 3 years later, recall going to all the businesses. Some were more formal than others, but all enlightening. I now try to get back every two years simply because of my experience with IBS”

– University of North Carolina, Winter 2015 Alumni

“I learned about operations in multinational and global businesses. I also learned about the many different cultures and attitudes in the countries we visited. This helped to add firsthand knowledge to my international studies”

– University of Colorado, Colorado Spring, Winter MBA 2015 Alumni
