UB International Business Association

Welcome to the official page of the UB International Business Association! (IBA) Our goal is to provide a medium for students interested in:

Working Abroad
International Commerce &
Foreign Business Culture

Today, the world is increasingly "shrinking".

Therefore, it is fundamental to understand the world beyond our borders. We believe IBA can help you with that. IBA provides opportunities for like-minded students to network, exchange and learn through various social networking events, speakers series, case competitions and field trips. All with a tinge of fun.
