General semester

The first semester at IBC-M is an interdisciplinary common semester across all programmes and it is called the General Semester. The General Semester ensures a smooth introduction of IBC-M programmes to new students and supports their academic and social transition to college. It introduces students to learning opportunities and resources available at IBC-M.

All first semester students take the same classes that represent the basic management courses and courses related to academic departments and programmes. The first semester of studying at IBC-M also includes orientation, academic advising services, tutoring, and other services by dedicated academic and administrative staff aiming to support student learning and success.

During the General Semester you will take courses common to all three departments:

  • Marketing and Management,
  • Public Administration, and
  • Environmental and Agricultural Management.

Please note: New students must enroll on to one of the three programmes during the application process.

You need to make your final choice about whether to join the International Sales and Marketing, Environmental and Agricultural Management, or Public Service Management study programmes at the beginning of a first semester.
