What is UM CIBER?
In 2010, the U.S. Department of Education awarded the University of Miami a grant in order to establish the CIBER. Our goal is to promote our nation's international competitiveness and understanding. To that end, we support dozens of programs, from foreign business and language courses and competitions for students, to research mini-grants for faculty, to conferences and events for local and international business leaders. If it's related to international business, we want to help.
For more information, check out our About section.
So, what can CIBER do for you?
For students we offer a variety of programs aimed at bettering your ability to compete in the business world on a global scale. Undergraduate students can put thier business savvy to the test, competing in teams in the CIBER Case Challenge competition, or graduate students can travel abroad, solving real problems for real companies in the Global Business Project. We also offer short and long term study abroad opportunities, sponsor guest speakers you can see on campus, and much more. Check it out in the Students tab on the left.
To faculty we offer opportunities to grow as a researcher, educator, and practitioner of international business. Attend any of the lectures, conferences, seminars, and forums we sponsor to teach, learn from, and share with your fellow faculty. Take advantage of the Faculty Development Program organized by FIU's CIBER or apply for a mini-grant to support your international business research. Check out the Faculty tab on the left for more information, programs, or events.
For the local educational community we offer training and other services to promote international business within South Florida's high schools and community colleges.
For the local business community we sponsor the annual Global Business Forum, which brings together hundreds of industry professionals for two days of networking and critical thinking on important IB issues.
