International Business Opportunity Development (IBOD)

  • A collaborative consulting project involving graduate students (MBA, MSGBD) and international startups seeking to evaluate business opportunities in the U.S. market.
  • As a part of their coursework in the Seminar in International Entrepreneurship & Business Development (MGT 748), small student groups work on assessing a specific business opportunity in the U.S. market and developing an actionable recommendation for pursuing that opportunity.
  • More information about this project can be found here.

“Live Case” Project

  • As a part of their coursework in the Seminar in World Business Environment (MGT 748), small groups of graduate students (MBA, MSGBD) work on a project involving a local company seeking to initiate or expand its international presence.
  • The students engage with company’s executives to identify the relevant political, economic, cultural and competitive aspects of a prospective country-market relevant for entry/expansion. The aim is to analyze these factors and assess them in light of fit with the firm’s capabilities.  

International Business Development Practicum (IBDP)

  • The IBDP is a semester-long consulting project involving a client company located in another country.
  • As a capstone experience for the M.S. in Global Business Development (MSGBD) program (BA 794), the IBDP project demands students to apply and integrate their knowledge gained in the program, hone cross-cultural skills and master the ability to define, analyze, and solve business problems in an international setting.
  • The students are required to travel abroad to meet the client, learn about its competitive strengths and desired outcomes in order to formally scope the project. This is followed by extensive data collection and analysis culminating in detailed business development plan.
