The M.B.A. with International Business concentration and M.B.A. with Management concentration 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 class 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.

"The IFS was an amazing experience that I will never forget. The experience helped me learn and understand a foreign culture and has given me the desire to visit other emerging destinations worldwide. I truly recommend the experience to anyone wanting to do business on a global level."
