Test Your Contextual Intelligence

The MIB program is characterized by students and faculty who delve into the hard questions of international business with relish. These are questions that are not easily answered by a single book, class, discipline, or school of thought. They herald a future where the world and the world of business are ever more interconnected, where the Front Page meets the Business Page.  

This series of Ten Questions reflects the critical and complex questions that are the foundation of the MIB program. Click on a question below to read the perspectives from Fletcher experts.
