The Creation of Something Great
In 2003, the Consortium for Undergraduate International Business Education (CUIBE) was established to promote, enhance and foster innovations in the delivery of international business education. Originally, ten universities organized the consortium to focus on enhancing their programs through information-sharing, consultation and coordination. We subsequently began to share our insights and experiences with other interested schools. That experience led us to a decision in 2007 to open up membership to other institutions who share our vision of high-quality international business education profoundly impacting the quality of our undergraduate programs. Since that year, CUIBE membership has increased substantially with more than half of its members ranking among the top IB programs in the nation.
