What is IBE?
for Integrative Business Experience. It is a set of four class offered
to business students at the University of Central Missouri. The classes
include a marketing class (MKT 3405), a management class (MGT 3315), an
information systems class (CIS 3630), as well as an IBE practicum
class. IBE was created to give students a more hands on experience of
how things actually worked in the business world. To do this, the class
is formed into companies. Each company has to come up with a product
design, find a manufacturer, apply for a loan (for start up money), sell
the product, and control the products image through marketing and
advertising. Students actually get to experience problems businesses go
though instead of just reading about them.
Lending a Helping Hand
At the beginning of the semester, students not only decide what type of
product they wish to produce, but also which charity they wish to help.
Every company must choose a non-profit organization to donate their time
(service hours), as well as all the profit generated from their business
venture. This way, IBE students are able to make a difference in
the community while learning valuable lessons at the same time.
