International Business Seminars (IBS) Announces Its Summer Programs and Launches New Website

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwire - March 2, 2009) - International Business Seminars (IBS) is releasing its European Summer programs featuring lectures, plant tours and business presentations throughout Europe, including, but not limited to, London, Munich, Paris, Brussels and Innsbruck. All information can be found on its newly released website at The three open programs are offered and, with approval from the individual's university, academic credits can be obtained.

For over 30 years, IBS has organized programs that combine learning about international business first-hand while experiencing the cultural, social and political environments of some of the world's most interesting cities. IBS has organized hundreds of seminars, and has over 20,000 alumni who have participated in the seminar program over the years.

A recent survey done by the Study Abroad for Global Engagement at the University of Minnesota in conjunction with the Forum on Education Abroad found that students who study overseas for a short period of time, four weeks or less, are just as likely to be globally engaged later in life as those who study abroad for several months or even a year provided the seminar has a strong academic grounding. The findings were presented at the annual conference of the Forum on Education Abroad on February 19, 2009.

Students may have the opportunity to earn 3 semester units of credit by actively participating in all sessions and submitting a final report based on the seminar. While IBS is not a credit granting institution, students are advised to check with their faculty coordinator at their home institutions. Independent Study is often a potential option for earning credit on off-campus programs.

Daniel C. Brenenstuhl, DBA, is the founder and primary force behind the International Business Seminars program. Dan received his Doctor of Business Administration Degree (DBA) from Indiana University in 1975. While he was at Indiana working with his fellow doctoral students he developed the idea of having an international seminar where students in the business major could receive upper division credit while experiencing the real world of business overseas.
