What is IBC?

You may have seen groups of students behind stands in scattered locations across campus. They sell a variety of items, from treats to jewelry. These are participants taking the Integrated Business Core class, otherwise known as IBC.

IBC is a fully-immersive course offered at BYU-Idaho. Focused on giving real-world experience, the IBC class gives a platform for students who want to run a business.

“IBC experience has broken the mold of the mundane college course,” said James Johnston, a BYU-I alumni. “It has taught me more about how the real world of business works than any other classes I have thus far taken.”

The first part of the course begins with a class excursion, where students are divided into teams. Companies are chosen through an intensive, few-week-long process.

“You take out a loan from the school and start a business and run it,” said Daniel O’Dair, a junior studying marketing and Pretzel Parlor employee. “You learn the basics of operations, marketing, finance … it gives you real-world experience.”
