Foster School Awarded $1.2M for Innovative Global Initiatives

The Foster School of Business at the University of Washington is pleased to announce that it is one of 16 schools selected to receive a Center for International Business Education and Research (CIBER) grant from the U.S. Department of Education for 2022-2026. This grant program was created to promote U.S. competitiveness through the development of a globally competent workforce.  Located in one of our nation’s most trade-dependent and technologically innovative regions, the CIBER program housed at the UW Global Business Center will build on our strong foundation in global business education and research to launch new programming focused on three thematic areas: 1) global business resilience, 2) training for export competitiveness, and 3) cross-cultural competence through a DEI lens.

Annually, the CIBER program at UW Foster benefits more than 6,000 students, faculty, and community members. It enables us to continue to deliver experiential learning opportunities including study abroad, case competitions and consulting projects while simultaneously supporting leading edge global business teaching and research. Being a CIBER grantee facilitates deeper regional and national partnerships that increase the impact we can have for Washington and the world. We are grateful to have been recognized as a Center for International Business Education and Research (CIBER) since 1991.

Congratulations to Brigham Young University, Florida International University, George Washington University, Georgia Institute of Technology, Georgia State University, Indiana University, Loyola Marymount University, Michigan State University, The Ohio State University, San Diego State University, Temple University, Texas A&M University, University of Colorado-Denver, University of Maryland, and University of South Carolina who were also awarded grants.

We are proud to contribute to U.S. competitiveness with all of you!
