MIBA - IFS

International Field Seminar

Dubai

The Master of International Business Administration gives students the option to travel on the International Field Seminar to emerging markets, 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!

"Visiting China was an astonishing experience, as an international student I have broadened my horizons and developed my abilities to discover and adapt to new cultures and societies. Attending seminars in Hong Kong and Guangzhou helped me to understand how China�s economy is developing and how the government and private entities interact within China�s extremely fast growing environment"
