International Field Seminar


The Master of International Business Administration [MIBA], the MBA IB concentration and MBA management programs give students the option to travel on the International Field Seminar to emerging markets, visiting such select countries such as China, India, South Africa, Argentina, Uruguay, Mexico, Chile, Cuba, Czech Republic, Brazil, Russia, and Dubai UAE.

The IFS project was initiated in 1998. Each unique experience is developed using a combination of cold calling (emailing) to new contacts and builds on existing global networks. Each IFS is put together in conjunction with its host university, so that each IFS is different but all are the experience of a lifetime. The students participating bring the IFS to life each time and the Professor is often asked by students which is the best IFS... and the answer is always "each and every one of them!."

Learn about business in your chosen destination, attend classes and visit companies and enjoy getting to know your colleagues in a new and exciting setting. The classes usually consists of 25 students and your Professor. Depending on where we go, the schedule is uniquely developed for that country, so may include getting to know students from the destination country, visiting historic sites, seeing how people really live or just enjoying the food!

The full academic description of the IFS is located on the syllabus posted on the Links tab. Select Destinations to see where we have already been and Guidelines for future destinations and general information.

"While pursuing my MIBA at Nova Southeastern University, I had the opportunity to experience one of the most unforgettable moments in my life. I participated in the International Field Seminar in South Africa! Traveling to South Africa, I visited Johannesburg, Cape Town, and even went on a Safari. Coupled with attending major companies like SAB Miller and the experience of seeing wild animals in their natural habitat, this is a snap shot in time I will never forget. Of all the schooling in my lifetime, the knowledge gained on this trip was extraordinary."
