National International Business Resources

The CIBER network, administered by the U.S. Department of Education, 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 seventeen serve as regional and national resources to business people, students and teachers at all levels. Building on the strengths of their faculty and staff, 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.

Each university CIBER throughout the country sponsors and co-sponsors various programs in different categories that encourage participation of faculty and graduate students from around the country. We encourage you to visit the national CIBERWeb for programs that may be of interest to you. For your convenience, we have linked directly to the CIBERWeb various fields of interest:
