IEE Panama with USMA

IEE program with la Universidad Santa Maria La Antigua, involves travel to Panama, Panama typically for 5-10 days in May. In 2017, SIBC will host the program in TBD at Notre Dame.


This project allows Notre Dame students to travel to Panama to work with students from USMA, one of Panama's most prestigious private universities, and further promote SIBC's mission of Peace through Commerce. Students will collaborate with USMA students on a business case study regarding current domestic and international issues and will present their findings at a case competition at the end of the week. Students from both universities will also visit major firms in Panama City and network with successful professionals in various fields.

Panama also has one of the largest Notre Dame Alumni networks outside of the U.S. and students will have the opportunity to meet with many of them throughout the trip. Panama is a beautiful and exciting city to be in, and students will have the opportunity to sight see, eat local food, and immerse themselves in the Panamanian culture.
