Leadership Opportunity in the International Business Initiatives

Lead a Trip to One of Our International Destinations!

  • Cambridge
  • Austria & Italy
  • Mediterranean Cruise
  • Asian Cruise

The School of Business offers leadership opportunities for students that participate in our study abroad courses. Each course will generally have one leadership position.  This person will be responsible for PR,  finance and logistics. Leaders will work with the instructor and may make contacts with companies in country that they are interested in visiting.

Study abroad leaders thus help design their course and ensure that the course content is what students are interested in learning. They have exceptional opportunities to make contacts in foreign countries. Completed leadership assignments can be stated in a leader's c.v. Moreover, leaders who successfully complete their assignment receive a $ 1,000 tuition remission ($500 at the beginning of the trip and $500 upon return to the US). They also become members of LIBIC, our international leader's club, which allows them to network with past and present IBI leaders. Selected leaders will be asked to serve on a panel to advise the School of Business on future international business initiatives. Prospective leaders are selected a few months prior to departure by the faculty who leads the trip.

Students interested in leading one of the trips this year, should contact the faculty who teaches the course or the international program director, Michael MacQueen at their earliest convenience with a letter of interest and a copy of your resume. Please indicate which position(s) and which study abroad course(s) you are applying for.
