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]
