Global Initiatives

Students in Peking, China

The Council's newest initiative seeks to partner with student organizations from universities all over the world with a shared vision to address current economic issues in a collaborative manner.

Our first partnership was made with the student group Global View Initiative (GVI) from the prestigious Peking University in China. SIBC delegates travel to Beijing during the Fall semester, and GVI delegates visit Notre Dame during Spring to collaborate, research, analyze, and gain meaningful understanding regarding relevant global economic forces for China and the United States.

The SIBC looks to strengthen relations between future business leaders from countries all over the world. New partnerships with other universities in Brazil, Ecuador, and Hong Kong are currently in development.

We believe that business has an opportunity to serve the common good through socially responsible business practices and ethical behavior within the global economy.
