Notable Coursework

IBC Given By: University Of IdahoCourse Description: IBC or Integrated Business Curriculum is an MBA style undergraduate program required of all business majors at the University of Idaho. Instead of the traditional structure: a separate class in finance, management operations ,human resources development, information systems and marketing material was split into topics like Team Building and Group Dynamics, Planning and Decision making in the Organization and Product and Process Planning. We formed cross functional (among all business majors) teams that we worked closely with for the 1 year IBC program Assignments and projects were done in our teams and were generally much to large to accomplish individually. Projects included 30-45 page deliverables that outlined results of research and analysis and proposed solutions, 60-90 minute oral presentations using powerpoint slides of our research analysis and solutions, and development and managment of a tradeshow booth at a majior convention.
