Winter Two 2018

December 26, 2017 to January 5, 2018
London, United Kingdom and Paris, France

        People dream about London and Paris from the early days of seeing these places in movies and in the news. There is truly nowhere else like these two influential cities to be during the holidays. You will arrive in London, IBS will facilitate your orientation and city tour and in a few short days you will be celebrating New Year’s Eve like you’ve never imagined in downtown London. The second half of your seminar will be spent enjoying Paris, known for its international businesses, fashion and world-renowned cuisine.

        You will appreciate every minute of your time in these two cities, and you will undoubtedly learn more than you can ever imagine. Certainly, you will learn about the history, politics and culture; but IBS will also grant you exclusive access into some of the top international companies. You will hear directly from executives at these companies and gain an authentic understanding of what business is like within their organizations. We’re taking you outside of the comforts of the classroom, and you will learn on site from some of the best!

“This IBS Seminar changed my life. It completely opened my eyes to a whole new world that I was completely unaware of. Meeting with all of the companies and being able to roam around the cities was truly the greatest experience of my life.”

– Louisiana State University, Winter Two 2017 Alumni

“I learned quite a lot about the differences between doing business in America versus business in foreign countries. It was absolutely worth hearing different prospective from business leaders within their home countries”

– California Lutheran University, Winter Two 2016 Alumni

“I wish that I would’ve know how many great friends I would be making in such a short amount of time!”
