International Business Seminars
The International Business Seminars program was started over 20 years ago by Dr. Daniel C. Brenenstuhl, Associate Professor of Management at Arizona State University. The program provides a unique opportunity for business students to have practical exposure to the business world abroad. The Seminar may be taken for three semester hours of credit. In some instances, an additional three hours of credit may be arranged by completing additional work for the Seminar.
The International Business Seminar is a once in a lifetime opportunity that will introduce you to the world of international business and travel. Over 7,000 students from about 30 universities across America have enjoyed the IBS experience. Students will gain insight into the cultural, social, and political environments of each country to be visited. We look forward to the possibility of you joining their group this year and adding the IBS experience to your resume!
Students at Bloomsburg University will register in 90.333 International Business Seminar during the session in which they wish to participate in the program. Course requirements include pre- and post-trip orientations, a journal during the trip, and a final project/paper. Attendance at all sessions and professional business attire and conduct will be expected since students will be visiting and interacting with business professionals in the countries that are visited.
Students from universities throughout the United States register to attend these seminars. Three faculty members travel with the students and have input into studentsí grades, but a Bloomsburg University College of Business faculty member provides the course orientations and is responsible for your final grade in the course.
