National Ciber Program

The Fox School of Business is a host institution of the National CIBER program, serving as a resource for education to improve U.S competitiveness in international markets for both students and the business community.

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.

Through a series of programs such as conferences, seminars, and workshops, Temple CIBER has an important influence on the local K-12, academic and business communities.

“The renewal of this prestigious grant continues to affirm the Fox School’s vital role in producing cutting-edge international business research, promoting international ideas within our community and fostering worldwide learning among our students and faculty,” said Fox School Dean M. Moshe Porat. “Once again, the Fox School and Temple are being recognized as destinations for global engagement.”

The Fox School is host of the only CIBER in the greater Philadelphia region and also the only such center in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. There are 3 CIBERs located in the northeastern United States.
