BUSINESS
FieldStudy International BusinessEmphasisExploration
IBUS 282
1.00
Prerequisite: IBUS280. Corequisite: IBUS 281
This course allows students to explore a functional business area inmore depth during the field study. Studentswill have opportunities to
meetwith individuals that practice in their emphasis and to ask questions. Studentsmay also have anopportunity to participate in field
trips that differ from their classmates thatwill allow themmore insight into how their emphasis is impacted in different cultures. This
course requires a final reflective paper prior to the end of the second term of the summer session. This course requires admission in the
preceding fall, satisfactory completion of IBUS 280 and concurrent enrollment in IBUS 281.
