GW Center for International Business Education and Research

GW Center for International Business Education and Research The GW-CIBER promotes the nation’s capacity for international understanding and economic enterprise. The George Washington University CIBER promotes the nation’s capacity for international understanding and economic enterprise related to the theme of "Institutions, Policies, and Development in International Business (IB)".

This theme draws on strong faculty capabilities across a range of disciplines, as well as university-wide interests in promoting economic development through scholarship, education, and outreach to the business, academic, and policy communities. GW-CIBER also serves as a national and regional resource supporting business language instruction, with a focus on less-commonly taught languages, in order to increase future professionals’ abilities to communicate in the language of commerce.

Mission: The national CIBER program, founded under the Omnibus Trade and Competitiveness Act of 1988 and administered through the U.S. Department of Education, links U.S. businesses with the expertise of U.S. universities in areas of international education, language training, and research. Seventeen universities are designated as CIBERs to serve as regional and national resources for businesses, students, educators, and academics. Together, the CIBERs form a powerful network focused on meeting the personnel and information needs of American businesses. The CIBER network serves to enhance U.S. competitiveness and provide programs and services that help U.S. businesses succeed in global markets.

GWSB's Anna Helm to Use Virtual Simulations for Fall International Business Course

Got the virtual first-day-of-school jitters? GW-CIBER and GW’s international business faculty are excited to welcome students back to school with adapted courses built around online instruction! "There's always a necessity in international business to conduct some of it virtually—whether it be by phone or email or through video conference calls,” according to GW-CIBER's Director Dr. Anna Helm (GWSB associate teaching professor of international business). Dr. Helm’s undergraduate International Marketing Management students will be using the virtual simulation CountryManager to implement a hypothetical market entry and expansion strategy in Latin America or Asia. Learn more about this semester-long simulation, as well as other engaging international opportunities available to students at GW this fall, here: https://gwtoday.gwu.edu/gw-all-access-anna-helm-gwsb
