The Impact Zone

International Business Seminar

The International Business Seminar is designed to provide students with a global experience, expose them to different cultures, and demonstrate international business practices firsthand to help students learn how to evaluate any country for potential business opportunities.

Preparation for the trip is integrated into the entire program. Where possible, the program will include a micro-session to discuss the culture, economics, politics, legal structure, and business practices. Additionally, where appropriate, information/discussion about our destination country is integrated into regular course discussions and materials. Each study group identifies one company to visit during the trip, and as a team, research, contact, and plan logistics to make that happen.

Once on the ground, students visit many companies, attend classes at the host university, and meet with trade and diplomatic representatives from both the United States and the host country. Students also experience the culture of the country through meals, business discussions, and other special events as scheduled. By the time students return to the United States, they have a strong understanding of the business structure of the host country and will have developed a model to explore the business potential of new international markets.
