Through CIBER, the Smith School supports the professional development and training of faculty in the area of international and global business through participating in Faculty Development in International Business programs offered by the Smith School CIBER and other CIBERs. The Smith School CIBER also strives to help develop faculty from other academic institutions to help broaden the reach of CIBER resources.
To this end, Smith CIBER is actively seeking to support one faculty member from a Minority Serving Institution or Community College who is interested in broadening his/her understanding of global business and using the FDIB as a platform for developing a course that will be delivered at his/her home institution or resources to augment the international content of a course already offered.Link: http://www.rhsmith.umd.edu/centers-excellence/ciber/initiatives-programs/faculty/msi-cc-competition

The Doctoral Consortium is a workshop for Ph.D. students from all over the world to further develop their research ideas, to learn about the challenges of conducting business research and building a successful academic career in their field, and to broaden their professional networks.
Consistent with the developmental mission of AIB-SE, the consortium is open for first-year Ph.D. students as well as more advanced Ph.D. students who are in the dissertation phase. Ideally, students should have a strong research idea or be close to completing a thesis proposal, and be far enough away from finishing the thesis that they can make good use of feedback received during the consortium.
The consortium will be held on Thursday, November 12, 2015. Participants in the consortium will be transported by bus from the conference hotel to the Savannah State campus arriving at 9:30, following a brief tour, the consortium will begin at 10:00 until 12:30. Participants will then join the participants of the new faculty consortium and X-Culture program for lunch provided by Savannah State.

Although each participant will be required to register for the 2014 AIB-SE Annual Meeting, there are no additional fees for participating in this consortium.
Please apply to the consortium through the AIB-SE 2014 Online Submission System.
