International Business Seminars Reviews
An experience you cannot get without IBS!
Submitted by Amanda Mapes - Nothern Illinois University | November 10, 2016
For someone to go to China, they would need to purchase a plane ticket and a hotel reservation. They would have to do a search for tourist hotspots, and maybe even talk to someone who has recently been to China for tips on great places to see. While this would surely be an amazing experience, it would be pale in comparison to what IBS offers students.
IBS took care of the flights, hotel stays, and ensured we were at a hotel with great safety ratings, internet for those important messages back home to Mom, and free breakfast every morning. Any travel company can do this for you, but what they cannot do is put you in contact with high-level managers from global companies (Earnst & Young, Coca-Cola, and Lenovo to name a few) and allow you to tour these companies and see what a variety of "typical" businesses in China are like. One gentleman we spoke to even extended internship offers in his company to American students who were willing to stay in China the following year and teach English to young Chinese students.
They not only gave the students the opportunity to see and ask questions to nine Chinese businesses, but offered daily tour opportunities during free time at a discounted rate (so we could also have the "tourist experience" in addition to the business experience).
I highly recommend IBS Trips due to their organization, safety, and once-in-a-lifetime opportunities! Due to my satisfaction, I am taking advantage of a second opportunity they are offering to study in SE Asia this January.

Overall I had a great time studying abroad with International Business Seminars. It was a unique program that has been around for a long time, so they know what they are doing. I believe that IBS offers a lot more real life knowledge than a traditional study abroad program. I liked that we were not sitting in a classroom and that we were learning about actual businesses and their processes.
Experience international business culture

I choose IBS because I was very interested in their listed itinerary. The companies visited touched on every aspect of business, from entrepreneurship to marketing/advertising to co-operative associations. IBS offered what I was looking for in a good length of time. I learned the value of presenting yourself professionally and networking. I also learned the importance of respecting the cultures of other countries and adapting. My experience was definitely worthwhile.
So worth it!

I never thought I'd be able to go to China. Yet, through this program I was able to visit two major cities and many culturally important sites. Learning from business leaders based in China gave me the opportunity to gain insight into doing business abroad I would not have gotten elsewhere. Thanks IBS!
