Center for International Business Education and Research (CIBEAR)

The Marshall Schoolís Center for International Business Education and Research (CIBEAR) was selected in October 1990 by the U.S. Department of Education and is one of its 30 national centers. The centerís mandate is to broaden and deepen knowledge about international business among USC students, faculty and business stakeholders to increase their international competitiveness. Between 1990 and 2002, the U.S. Department of Education provided CIBEAR with $3.8 million of support, which has been more than matched by USC cash and in-kind contributions to support over 130 projects that are helping to internationalize teaching and research programs throughout the Marshall School of Business and USC. CIBEAR won a four-year renewal worth $1.4 million in October 2002. CIBEAR Director Richard Drobnick, Associate Director John Windler and USC faculty coordinate and direct the projects.
