Current MS in International Business Students

At The Bryan School of Business

Online Orientation

We will host an online orientation for new enrolled students of the MS in International Business Program. This online orientation serves to provide you with the opportunity to meet with the Program Director, ask questions, and give you more details about courses and expectations. Orientation is hosted through Zoom. Complete details, along with RSVP information, will be included in your admission packet. MSIB Students are also welcome to attend the face-to-face orientation hosted by the Bryan School, which will cover the same program information.

X-Culture’s mission is to provide better international business education through experiential learning.

Launched by UNCG’s own Professor Vas Taras, X-Culture is an amazing opportunity for students to take their international business education to the next level.

Every semester, thousands of students and professionals from over 40 countries take part in the X-Culture competition. Through X-Culture, students of International Business and related fields from around the world are put into Global Virtual Teams to work on business projects presented by corporate partners. For a semester, these teams work together on their project, experiencing the challenges and learning the best practices of international collaboration.

Students interested in participating in X-Culture should review this page on how X-Culture works and what you need to do to prepare for such a project. If you’re ready, apply here!
