The purpose of the International Business Association (IBA) is to promote interest in and understanding of business in the context of globalization. The world is more interconnected and interdependent than ever and as such IBA strives to be a forum for global conversation. Meetings are open to any ISU student and are generally centered around a topic that is then explored and discussed. Outside of club meetings IBA regularly attends internationally focused events on campus, in Chicago, and in St. Louis. IBA is also a proud sponsor of international entrepreneurship by funding microloans through Kiva, all around the world. You can find out more information on our Facebook page at International Business Association at Illinois State University or email the IBA executive board at firstname.lastname@example.org.
