President's Message


Dear fellow students and faculty,

I like to invite everyone to be part of another exciting year with the International Business Association (IBA) and its amazing journey of growth and development. Together, we can bring value and unique experiences for students at the Capilano University School of Business.

Our purpose is to provide the right resources to students who have a passion for international business, culture, traveling and an open mind to new experiences, by providing opportunities, connections with industry professionals, new skills, and unique learning experiences. We are devoted to creating a one-of-a kind experience for Capilano University's business undergraduates. We host various acclaimed pillar events such as IBA’s Cultural Dinner, Sustainable Business Panel, Company Tours, Social Mixers and more.

This year, the team is focusing on growing awareness and bringing more value to the students and our sponsors. We believe real world experiences are crucial in growing young professional minds, thus we will introduce IBA’s first case competition that will enable students to apply their knowledge to real scenarios and create innovative solutions. Additionally, we will also introduce Cultural Night, a new special event that showcases business cultures of different countries.

With your support to our association’s mission, it will enrich the quality of IBA events and inspire students to capture opportunities. Join us to embark an amazing journey with us in supporting the passionate pursuit of international success of our young professional business students!

Thank you for taking your time and consideration. We look forward to seeing you at our events.
