Center for International Business Education & Research (CIBER)

The CIBER program was 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 Global Business Center at the Foster School of Business is home to one of only thirty-three CIBERs in the US. The UW CIBER was first funded in 1991, and the CIBER grant supports many of the GBC's student, faculty, and community programs.  Specific grant programs include the Northwest International Business Educators Network, Business Language Grants, Foster School Faculty Grants, and the Global Business Forum.
