International Business Ventures

The International Business Ventures (IBV) Enterprise at Michigan Technological University offers a unique opportunity for students to learn how best to work cooperatively with other classmates as well as students and businesses worldwide to develop and bring to market new products for which a need has been identified.

With a hierarchal arrangement mimicking a functioning business (faculty as Board of Directors, a student CEO, and sectional team leaders), IBV presents students with authentic challenges faced outside of academia to better prepare them for work in industry. As an ongoing organization, IBV has and will continue to help to create invaluable experiences for students from a wide array of academic disciplines which can later be directly applied in the work place.
