About Virtual Southeast Asia

IBS has developed a completely online program that allows you to interact with business executives in both Thailand and Vietnam. Using our vast network of relationships, you will have the opportunity to learn how companies in Southeast Asia are operating, adapting, and being creative in these challenging times. Participants will get an inside look into both the Thai and Vietnamese economies, business etiquette and will explore some of the most famous locations in Southeast Asia through live virtual tours. Participants will also have cross-cultural discussions with students across the globe and collaborate with their peers from across the US. Earn credits, stay connected, and capitalize on the opportunity to gain relevant international experience without leaving home.
