When & Where
GSU-Center for International Business Education and Research (CIBER)
Designated as a center of excellence by the U.S. Department of Education in April 2010, Georgia State University’s Center for International Business Education and Research (CIBER) serves as a regional and national resource to businesses, students and academics. CIBER at Georgia State implements programs focused on improving American competitiveness and helping U.S. businesses succeed in global markets. Building on rich traditions of curriculum and faculty internationalization, strong ties to the corporate community, and exemplary programs such as the Global Partners MBA and the MIB, Georgia State University has been at the forefront of international business education, research and outreach.
One of GSU-CIBER's signature activities has been to spearhead the Southeast U.S. Higher Education Consortium for International Business. The consortium leads the formation of a collaborative higher education community composed of two-year, four-year, and historically black colleges and universities in Georgia, Alabama, Florida, Tennessee, North Carolina and South Carolina. The consortium serves as a clearinghouse for faculty development, teaching material preparation, regional resource sharing and technical assistance with writing DOE grant proposals. Students at consortium schools will participate in jointly sponsored study abroad and work abroad programs.
