Illinois CIBER supports International Business Immersion Programs (IBIP) to regions around the world. These intensive overseas experiences are preceded by a semester-long class, which requires students to prepare background materials on business firms, topics, and institutions in the overseas region. A final paper or project after the overseas immersion experience will be due. Faculty advisors, supported by CIBER, accompany students and structure their learning experience abroad.
