 International Business Seminars - Alumni Ambassadors

Alumni Ambassadors

Our Alumni Ambassadors have participated in a variety of IBS programs. They are here to provide support and guidance in your decision-making process. We encourage you to contact an Ambassador who attended a seminar that you are interested in to gain a better understanding on what to expect and the benefits, challenges, and experiences of studying abroad with IBS.
