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 17 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]
globalEDGE became a very powerful tool when I worked on the project of analyzing low cost country opportunities at Whirlpool this summer. It is a portal of an unbelievably large amount of information and data regarding international business. Additionally, the methodology used to analyze the emerging markets is very thought-provoking. globalEDGE was very helpful to my project and I think I will use it more frequently in the future.
