Welcome to CIBER
Temple University's Center for International Business Education and Research (CIBER) has been renewed for another funding cycle and is currently implementing more than 70 events to improve U.S. competitiveness in the world marketplace and to produce globally competent students, faculty and staff. This year marks the fourth time Temple CIBER at the Fox School has received a grant from the Department of Education since the center's inception in 2002 and is one of 17 such centers in the country.
The newly renewed proposal will help position U.S. interests to pivot to the growth markets of Asia, while remaining balanced in matured markets. In addition to enhancing programming in Japan and China, where Temple has a 30 year and nearly 20 year presence respectively, new programming will focus on emerging markets in Southeast Asia and India.
