University of Wisconsin-Madison students engage in innovative, applied-learning experiences that expose them to different cultures, languages, and business practices around the world, thanks to funding and programmatic support from CIBER.
Students in the Wisconsin Full-Time MBA program can participate in MBA Global Trips or in the Global Business Project, which give them real-world consulting experience for an international client in the form of a credit-bearing course with faculty guidance.
Undergraduate business students can apply for CIBER support for study abroad programs in 18 countries, or for the ExporTech™ internship, during which they spend the summer in Madison working for the Wisconsin Manufacturing Extension Partnership to conduct research on overseas markets for companies wishing to expand their exports.
Undergraduates from all majors can apply for scholarships to attend the annual Middle East Institute conference in Washington D.C., with funding from the Donald C. Leidel International Business Scholarship Fund.
The Wisconsin CIBER also works with student organizations such as AIESEC, IBSA, and GIBA, whose missions relate to international business. Finally, CIBER organizes occasional events for students considering careers in international business.
