Programs & Initiatives
Experiences that stretch across six continents.
Continuing the Kelley School of Business's long record of international activities, the Institute for International Business's portfolio is constantly evolving. Our current programs are highlighted, below:
The Barbados JOBS Initiative
The IIB has partnered with the University of the West Indies' Cave Hill School of Business (CHSB) to develop a comprehensive entrepreneurship program for MBAs and other instructional efforts for undergraduate students and current and prospective entrepreneurs through the Barbados JOBS Initiative.
The Business Education Bridge Program
Our Business Education Bridge Program helps prepare sponsored students from other countries for admission to U.S. MBA and PhD programs through an intensive and holistic immersion process.
IU Center for International Business Education and Research (CIBER)
At the IU CIBER, housed at the Kelley School of Business's Institute for International Business, we leverage the institutional strengths of Indiana University and the Kelley School of Business to offer programs for business professionals, faculty, and students to enhance their understanding of the global marketplace and strengthen their foreign language skills.
Global Women's Economic Empowerment Initiative
The Global Women's Economic Empowerment Initiative (GWEE)—a partnership with the Asia Pacific World Economic Council (APEC), the World Federation of Direct Selling Associations (WFDSA), and the IIB—teaches women entrepreneurs in developing countries how to start and sustain their own micro-ventures.
Global Business Institute – MENA
The Global Business Institute – MENA (GBI – MENA) is a collaboration with the U.S. Department of State and the Coca-Cola Export Corporation of Dubai. This multi-faceted, immersive program was designed to give a select group of students from across participating countries in the Middle East and North Africa the opportunity to learn about business in the context of American culture. The selection process was highly competitive with over 5800 students from Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Morocco, Palestine, and Tunisia applying for the 100 program spots.
International Graduate Business School Zagreb
Through a partnership with the Kelley School of Business, the first business school in Croatia—the International Graduate Business School Zagreb (IGBS)—was launched in 2002.
Visiting Scholar Program
The IIB welcomes scholars from around the world to participate in the exchange of ideas, research, and faculty collaboration at Indiana University's Bloomington Campus through our Visiting Scholar Program.
