The Business Cluster
The Integrated Business Cluster (IBC) is consistently cited as one of the most valuable educational experiences by students and alumni. The concept of the IBC is simple. Bring teachers from multiple disciplines into one class and have students work as teams to solve business problems. Professors represent business communication, management, analytics and information systems, and marketing.
Student teams are then challenged to apply what they've learned from all four disciplines to solve authentic business problems. Students learn and integrate key concepts, and also gain practical experience in leadership, time management, teamwork, problem solving, and analytical thinking.
