Skills development. Exclusive networking opportunities. Real-world work experience. We recently asked our students and alumni how IBC has impacted them. Here is what they had to say:
Salary Comparison Amongst Undergraduate Majors
said IBC benefitted them in the job process
said they use IBC in a job or internship interview
Make recommendations to executives at a global food-chain. Determine whether a global ag company should enter the Ukrainian market. Provide a new model to manage a $300 million budget. Assess advertising ROI of a global auto manufacturer.
These are not Harvard case studies. This is as real as it gets.

IBC is a professional development organization. That's what we aim to accomplish, that's the motivation for all we do. Our students report improvements in leadership skills, presentation skills, teamwork skills and in general, practice in a professional setting.
No matter what your background is, you will come out of IBC with new or improved skills.
IBC's alumni network includes high-performing professionals who are interested in giving back to current IBC students. IBC's Corporate Partners, clients and employer network includes incredible companies of all sizes whom recognize the top student talent they find in IBC.
Current IBC members are the cream of the crop at the University of Illinois.
Let's face it, companies want to hire people who will hit the ground running and add value to their organizations. Our students report that once the recruiter asks about this "IBC project", that's all they talk about in their interview.
Companies are looking for high-achievers and candidates who have real-world experience.
