The Globalizing Business Schools (GBS) project is designed to infuse understanding and the importance of international and interdisciplinary business education by equipping faculty with the pedagogical tools, knowledge, and experiences to incorporate international content into existing business courses and/or develop new courses. A integral component of the program is the one-on-one assistance provided by the sponsoring CIBERs to their respective HBCU in facilitating the implementation of international business education programs and in acquiring federal grant funds to support these efforts.Link: http://memphis.edu/wangctr
The 33 Centers for International Business Education and Research (CIBERs) have developed a cost-effective method to meet the need for faculty to develop understanding of how business is conducted around the world through several overseas programs for Faculty and Professional Development in International Business (FDIB/PDIB). CIBER programs cover key emerging market regions of the world: China, Southeast Asia, the Middle East, Sub-Saharan Africa, the Caribbean, and the MERCOSUR countries of South America, as well as the always important major markets of Western Europe and Australia. Participating faculty members, as well as business professionals and graduate students, gain firsthand knowledge of how business is conducted in a particular region of the world and the opportunity to network with overseas counterparts. They can integrate international examples into the courses they currently teach and develop new teaching and research interests, and make various business and professional contacts. Each program combines business, academic and governmental visits, cultural experiences and university presentations, all providing the opportunity to see just how the cultures and institutions influence the conduct of business. Please contact each CIBER directly about their program(s).[More Details]

The purpose of this conference is to bring together outstanding scholars from operations management, accounting, economics, finance, law, and related fields plus managers, engineers, tax advisers, accountants, lawyers and others from leading companies to discuss the rapidly changing landscape in tax-efficient supply chain management (TESCM).
TESCM is designed to produce flexible tax planning that is operationally-driven and able to deliver long-term reductions in the firm’s effective tax rate and other taxes. Geographical reconfiguration of a global supply chain must consider aspects, such as potential gains and losses in terms of production and logistics costs, time and cost benefits due to co-location as well as implications for supply chain partners and customers. Since operations and tax management have historically been positioned as occupying different silos, in many firms this integration is difficult to envision, let alone implement. Because companies and their advisors view these TESCM restructurings as proprietary and confidential, little is known about the extent to which they have changed both supply chain management and tax planning.Location: Chapel Hill, NC
