InterCultural Edge (ICE) is a scientifically validated cross-cultural communication instrument. Duke CIBER leads this initiative in collaboration with The Fuqua School of Business, Richard Lewis Communications, Cultureactive.com, and 3 other CIBERs that have supported the program since its inception in 2004.
The Capstone Conference will focus on the current use of the tool and its future.
The Centers for International Business Education and Research (CIBERs) were created by Congress under the Omnibus Trade and Competitiveness Act of 1988 to increase and promote the nation's capacity for international understanding and competitiveness. Administered by the U.S. Department of Education under Title VI, Part B of the Higher Education Act of 1965, the CIBER network links the manpower and technological needs of the United States business community with the international education, language training, and research capacities of universities across the country. The 33 CIBERs serve as regional and national resources to business people, students, and teachers at all levels. This grant program adheres to the Education Department General Administrative Regulations (EDGAR) Title 34, Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Parts 74-86 and 97-99.[More]
