This segment of of globalEDGE Business Beat focuses on who we are as MSU’s International Business Center. The segment builds on the two-pager that the center has as an overview for interested parties. Broadly, The International Business Center (IBC) in the Broad College of Business at Michigan State University was designated in 1990 as a National Resource Center by the U.S. Department of Education (i.e., a Center for International Business Education and Research). Our mission is to provide superior education, research, and assistance to businesses, public policy makers, academics, and students on international business and trade.
The IBC positions the Broad College as the top knowledge generator in international business research, guiding MSU’s path to thinking globally in more than 170 countries. Beyond running MSU’s international business minor and facilitating a global mindset of all Broad College students, IBC collaborates with Broad College faculty to secure grants for international research and outreach.
