Teaming up with Georgia State University's Center for International Business Education and Research (CIBER), Global Atlanta launched a series of emerging-market reports to help readers make sense of fast-growing countries that can be as challenging as they are hot.
We've tackled China first, combining on-the-ground reporting from our October trip with CIBER's academic research to provide practical insight on real issues companies will face when doing business in the country. Reports on India, Mongolia, and Ghana soon followed.
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]
“Media, Journalism and Business in a Global World Study Abroad Program to Istanbul, Turkey has been a once in a lifetime experience that has made me realize the significance of strengthening my global skills to ultimately make myself more competitive in the globalized economy. Getting to visit Coca Cola Eurasia and Africa, Turkcell, and other organizations as well as being able to interview Executives at leading companies in telecommunications are only a few examples of having first-hand witnessed the strong relationship between journalism and business. This trip has significantly helped me improve my communication and networking skills, reinforce my career goals, open up my worldview to an unlimited realm of possibilities, and has given me a deep appreciation for the Turkish culture. I would recommend this amazing program to any person who is interested in understanding the role that journalism plays in international business and economy as well as the experience of a truly beautiful country.”
