Center for Global Business at UT Austin

The University of Texas at Austin's Center for Global Business was was established as the Center for International Business Education and Research (CIBER) in 1990 with a grant from the United States Department of Education. Originally a group of 25, the CIBER network was increased to 34 business schools. As of 2014 the network now comprises 17 business schools. The CIBER grants run for four-year periods, following which the individual schools must compete again for subsequent four-year periods. CIBER has successfully competed for these grants in 1990, 1993, 1996, 1999, 2002, 2006, 2010 and 2014.

The Center for International Business Education (CIBE) program was initiated by the U.S. Congress with the goal of enhancing the United States' competitiveness in global markets by encouraging greater international business education at higher education institutions across the U.S. CIBE grant recipients were tasked with creating international business related programming within their universities, providing models and support for other universities to do the same, and offering competitiveness-building globally-focused education for U.S. business. Because research was expected to be an important component of CIBE funding, the new centers became known as CIBERs: Centers for International Business Education and Research.

Since its initial funding in 1990, the Center for Global Business/CIBER at The University of Texas at Austin has met the purposes of the CIBE program by initiating ever-evolving initiatives designed to respond to the changing needs among U.S. colleges, universities and U.S. business for innovative responses to challenges in global business and business education.
The Center for Global Business/CIBER has contributed to the McCombs School's internationalization efforts in many ways. One of the center's major achievements is the development of internationalization infrastructure in the form of the McCombs Global Network, a group of more than 40 of the world's top business schools (see list in tab "Partner Universities" on our website) located throughout Europe, Latin America, Asia, Africa and Australia, with whom the McCombs School has developed cooperative relations in various international ventures. The most common form of collaboration is student exchange, but various other collaborative programs are jointly offered Executive MBA programs, course offerings in overseas locations, PhD program cooperation and faculty exchange. To date, the Center for Global Business/CIBER has provided opportunities for thousands of UT students to gain international education and work experience. Additionally the network has allowed more than 50 UT business faculty members to obtain international teaching experience, resulting in increased faculty international research productivity.
