International Experiential Learning

Developed by the Hemispheric University Consortium and the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile, the Social Ideas Challenge (SIC) is a challenge which seeks to promote entrepreneurship with social impact through university communities. The best ideas are sought at an early stage to help solve problems that affect our society. Participating institutions include: University of Miami (USA), Universidad Austral (Argentina), Universidad Andrés Bello (Chile), Universidad San Francisco de Quito (Ecuador), Tec de Monterrey (Mexico) and Pontificia Universidad Católica (Chile). The contest will focus on socio-environmental challenges, within the framework of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

Founded by the College of Business Administration at Loyola Marymount University, the International Business Ethics and Sustainability Case Competition brings students teams together to address a wide array of business ethics issues. Considered the nation’s most prestigious event of its kind, the IBESCCco nsists of three separate competitions: a 25 Minute Presentation followed by Q&A and feedback; a 10 Minute Presentation and a 90 Second Presentation. In 2021 Virtual Competition, Miami Herbert students took home three first-place wins.

This program gives students the opportunity to travel abroad and work on projects for real companies. It's the perfect opportunity for graduate students to gain valuable hands-on international business experience. Participants in the Global Business Consulting program solve real problems, and experience real success.
