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]
“The Honors BUSA 3000 class, taught by Dr. Martha White, was really intriguing to me because it went in-depth with topics that coincide with my career aspirations, which is helping domestic companies operate in the global market. We had tantalizing lessons on the risks associated with Foreign Direct Investment, the general steps a company needs to take to succeed in the global market, and what assets a country should possess in order to attract foreign investments. I left the class with the ability to prepare a country analysis that helps determine whether there are viable investment options for a sustained growth. All the lessons taught in the class will surely be a great benefit for any student that would like to succeed in the job market.
