International Development & Entrepreneurship in Agribusiness (IDEA)

This unique international study course allows students to serve as a consulting team for a partnering agribusiness organization, with specific deliverables as part of an innovative business development project.


Each project includes international travel to an identified location to meet with industry representatives of interest in order to learn more about the project, relevant markets and final project outcomes. Travel occurs during Iowa State University’s spring break. The selected students are required to take a three credit course during the spring semester. Past projects have taken the group to Greece and Africa.
