International Business Association

San Jose State University

IBA advocates international careers, studying abroad, strong global leadership, and building interpersonal connections with fellow business students.We are part of a movement to encourage students of the San Jose State University College of Business to become more globally aware as they navigate their way into their professional careers. It is more important now than ever that we learn to see from the perspectives of those who are raised in cultures different from our own and gain a healthy respect and understanding of those perspectives.

Network with International Business students and Professionals

We are an open organization that welcomes students from all majors! That being said, this is a must-have on your resume if you are an International Business major. While other majors like Marketing, Human Resources, and Accounting have classes and organizations to augment their network and learning experience, we are the only place and organization where IB majors can gather and meet one another in an international business-emphasized setting.
