IBE Council

IBE Council

The IBE Council is a student run organization comprised of around 30 IBE students that work to strengthen IBE program through alumni networking, professional development, and recruitment events. 
 
It is comprised of five committees:  
  •  The Prospective Student Committee informs Lehigh candidates about the IBE Program as well as oversees the mentorship program between first years and upperclassmen. 
  •  The Professional Development Committee plans the IBE Career Fair and organizes company information sessions specifically looking to recruit IBE students. 
  •  The Alumni Relations Committee plans events to incorporate alumni through panels, networking, and trips to New York City. 
  •  The Media Committee works to maintain and improve the IBE website, as well as create original media content for the IBE program. 
  •  The Social Committee plans outings for IBE students so that each class has the opportunity to network and increase community within the IBE program. 
 
The council meets once a month to update the progress of committees and relate that information back to our advisors, Professor Kish (rjk7@lehigh.edu) and Professor Storer (rhs2@lehigh.edu).
 
Feel free to email ibecouncil@gmail.com with any questions or concerns. We will do our best to connect you with the proper resources to answer your questions.
