International Field Seminar

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!

"I had the pleasure of joining Dr. Clarke and a group of dedicated and enthusiastic MIBA students on the South Africa IFS. It was the experience of a lifetime, not only professionally and educationally but from a cultural perspective. What an amazing opportunity to be amongst professionals and students who although culturally different strive for the same goals as us and want to make a difference. I urge you not to miss it as it will change your life and enhance your outlook on the global environment."
