      I dunno much about the MIB but it sounds like a more concentrated program specializing in aspects of Intl. Business...

      For me, the scale is slanted towards an MBA just cuz I feel that an MBA gives you an all round experience in different aspects of business management. You learn a little bit of everything and then depending on your interests, you can choose to specialize in one or more areas. The courses you can take in the MBA related to Intl. Business typically would be Intl. Marketing, Intl. Business Finance, Global macro economics etc.

      The kind of positions that you can look for after you're done with an MBA with that focus can include Intl. Business Development Consultant, and Channel Marketing opportunities with Multinationals.

      I'm personally finishing up my MBA in eBusiness & Knowledge Management but am still trying to land an Intl. Business Development job with a focus on I.T. Program Management.

      Hope that helps.

      Lastknightess, I'm in the process of getting an MBA now. An MBA is good to have for an all-around level of expertise. It coaches you on every aspect of the business world such as Business Ethics, Business Law, Finance, etc etc etc. It really develops your understanding of the various real-life situations in the workplace from a management perspective. An MBA is certainly good for an entrepreneurial individual such as myself, unless of course one plans to start off a business from the ground up on an international level!

      An MIB, although I'm not too acquainted with it, probably seems to be good for an international corporate field such as Business Law or International Management/Marketing.

      I think deciding which is better for you, the MBA or the MIB, really depends on what you are planning to pursue in terms of your long-term career goals.

      Best of luck!

      MIB is a bit more focused on international business, almost like a masters of science in international business. MBA is a little bit more all-round etc. In general it does not matter because you still have to do courses in other areas.

      If you are interested in Int'l business you can go for either one. Even for an MBA if the course offerings are good you can take international courses as electives.

      I chose to do an MBA with a focus in international business, and took courses like interntional HR, International econ anf finance, int'l mkting etc. Based on advise of my profs I picked strategic mgmt as my second area of concentration.

      Challenge with i-business is that most fresh grads unless connected heavily into the industry will not be able to use it because you end up being a generalist, and a generalist in a very specific niche area. i.e. would someone with an int'l business degree be better at cross border M&A or a guy with a finance concentration.

      so you can lose out becuase for specific areas you dont have enough background. and ppl with backgrund in those areas may work better. International business is a great degree to have as you progress in your career.

      I would suggest, look at what else you are interetsed in finance, marketing, strategy, accounting, HR, etc etc.

      international business background will be of good help down the road but you will need some angle..figure out that angle.

      Hope this helps let me know if you need to know anything about international business career path etc.

      Most business is international in nature. You would get a chance to do cross-border work anyway, that's where the industries are heading. As manufac left the sates for asia and S. America, service industry is also following suit. So I wouldn't worry too much about getting an international business degree, in fact I would even advise against it. Concentrate in going to a top 20 b-school and concentrate in marketing, finance or strategy as Fraudiya said. I wouldn't stress accounting all that much as the only route that seems to open up is consulting (financial assurance stuff at Second tier consulting firms).

      It also depend where you work in the field you choose. If you choose to into Banking and multinationals than your chances are higher to do international work. If you work at the Big-4 or something then you chances are reduced.
