- Business Learning Team
The International Business Learning team is designed to assist first year students with the transition from high school to US colleges. It is composed of half international and half US students, providing opportunities for intercultural experience through a specialized orientation class required of all students in the team. Students who participate in the learning team are typically more academically successful and socially connected at Iowa State.
