About the International Business Center

At the International Business Center (IBC), our mission is to connect Pitt Business stakeholders to learning opportunities worldwide. We understand the complexities of international markets, the nuances of diverse world cultures, and the rapid change caused by disruptive technologies. Our goal is to enhance your global competency and, in doing so, to make you more competitive on the world business stage.

Whether you are a student, an alumnus, a faculty or staff member, or represent a business or nonprofit, we can help connect you to relevant and impactful global business experiences offered at the Joseph M. Katz Graduate School of Business and College of Business Administration, and more broadly at the University of Pittsburgh.

The IBC has more than 25 years of experience in the creation, development, and oversight of programs that enhance the global business competency of our students, faculty, and staff, as well as of our business and community partners.

Established by the U.S. Department of Education in 1989 as one of the five original Centers for International Business Education and Research, the IBC draws upon a vast network of contacts around the world to develop and launch programs that take Pitt Business’ strengths, such as Experience-Based Learning, to the global level.
