About CIBERs

Enhancing U.S. Business Competitiveness in the Global Marketplace

The Centers for International Business Education and Research (CIBERs) were 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. CIBERs serve as regional and national resources to business people, students, and teachers at all levels.

Each CIBER organizes a variety of activities to advance the study and teaching of international business and to support applied research on United States’ competitiveness in the global marketplace.

CIBERs work collaboratively with each other, with other departments and disciplines within their universities, other colleges and universities regionally and nationally, government and trade councils, professional associations, and businesses.
