CIBER supports research on business topics of international significance, particularly in the areas of sustainability and emerging markets.
CIBER facilitates a series of research circles for undergraduate students in the University Honors Program who are writing theses on international business topics. The research circles are designed to provide a forum for presenting findings, sharing successes and challenges, and seeking tips from peers and faculty experts.
The CIBER Honors Research Award recognizes undergraduate research that contributes to an understanding of global business, or has implications for firms operating in a global environment.
