The University of Minnesota was awarded a $1.5 million Title VI grant from the U.S. Department of Education in 2010 to establish a Center for International Business Education and Research (CIBER) at the Carlson School to increase and promote the nation's capacity for international understanding and competitiveness. As part of a network of centers at higher-education institutions nationwide, CIBER serves business people, students, and educators at all levels.
Created by Congress in 1988 and administered by the U.S. Department of Education under Title VI, Part B of the Higher Education Act of 1965, the CIBER network links the manpower and technological needs of the United States business community with international education, language training and research capacities of universities across the country. For information on the CIBER network, visit www.ciberweb.msu.edu/.
"Business outreach and collaboration with companies on international issues have long been a hallmark of the Carlson School of Management. CIBER builds on and leverages what we're already doing to further benefit companies, educational institutions, and other units within the University."
