Federal Funding Increased for Global Business Center

Foster’s Global Business Center (GBC) has been awarded $1.3 million from the US Department of Education Centers for International Business Education & Research (CIBER) program for 2018-2022.

This renewed—and increased (15%)—investment makes Foster one of only 15 business schools with a federally designated center of excellence in global business education.

A CIBER-funded center for 28 years, the Global Business Center will use its increased funding to deliver 30 new initiatives around the areas of Asia Pacific trade networks, the digital economy and multidisciplinary skills for successful careers.

Plans include an annual China Town Hall to engage the community in a national conversation about the critical US-China relationship, faculty grants to develop joint courses and projects with faculty in other countries, and an initiative to bring a global focus to accounting students.

More information on the Global Business Center and its CIBER programming can be found on the GBC website.
