Our team of professionals

Meet the IBR board of 2022-2023

International Business Research (IBR) is a study project associated with the University of Groningen.

Meet the Team

During the IBR Project, the team will consist of 30 students; 8 board members, and 24 participating students. The participants will be divided over the two destinations. The participants group will be formed after an extensive selection procedure that takes place in October. Besides, we are advised by the Advisory Board (AB), and the quality of our project is endorsed by the Board of Recommendation (BoR).
