Our alumni are our best ambassadors. They tell the world about the quality international education they received at Illinois State University and how their International Business major prepared them for their careers.
In 2016 we held the first International Business Reunion to celebrate 35 years since the first official International Business major graduated and crossing over 1000 International Business majors graduated from the College of Business at Illinois State University. We used this occasion to thank Iris and Carson Varner for their vision in founding this degree. We hope to hold more Reunions in the future, but we encourage all of our alumni to come visit with us on campus and get to know our current students.
In looking over what we know about our alumni, we’ve realized the diversity of career and life paths you’ve taken. Many of you live in Illinois, but many others have moved to different states and yet others have spent most of their work lives abroad. The number of different companies and industries you are all involved in was mind boggling!
We love to hear from our alumni and find out where your path has gone. We hope that this website will facilitate our communication with you and keep you informed of all the new developments at your alma mater, particularly in the International Business major. Please contact us to share your story, open your workplace to our students, or just keep in touch!
