The Center for International Business Studies (CIBS) is responsible for internationalizing the business programs at Mays Business School. Within the CIBS framework, a U.S. Department of Education-designed Center for International Business Education (CIBE) has operated at Texas A&M since 1990. CIBEs are established at selected universities to improve America’s capacity for international understanding and economic enterprise by providing enhanced international business education, research, and outreach activities that help U.S. businesses compete effectively in the rapidly expanding global market.

CIBS has established various student exchange and study abroad programs with universities worldwide that allow Texas A&M students and faculty to develop and share their knowledge and experiences with people from other universities, cultures, and nations.
