Many researchers are concerned about the generalizability of their research findings in cross-cultural, cross-national settings. Many pursue research topics in a single national environment and wonder if their research results would be confirmed in different contexts.
In 1993, a small number of researchers from across several countries, whose major research interests focus on the internationalization of firms, decided to collaborate in future projects. With the leadership of Professor S. Tamer Cavusgil, then Michigan State University CIBER Founding Executive Director, and Professor Catherine N. Axinn of Ohio University (an MSU alum), an informal research alliance was then formed, known as the Consortium for International Marketing Research (CIMaR).
IB Pedagogy Workshops
Held since 1992 by a consortium of CIBERs (Centers of Excellence designated by the U.S. Department of Education), IB Pedagogy Workshops have trained over 1,000 faculties from around the U.S. and other countries. The workshops are designed to assist business faculty to improve their practical knowledge and classroom skills for teaching international business.
This is a unique professional development opportunity for those who: (1) have a passion for teaching international business; (2) are interested in learning about latest classroom innovations; (3) wish to update their skills and pedagogical toolbox; and (4) wish to meet and be inspired by seasoned educators who have excelled in teaching.
The International Business Pedagogy Workshop is a project of the Minority Serving Institution (MSI) Consortium, hosted by GSU-CIBER and sponsored by CIBERs at Florida International University, George Washington University, Indiana University, Michigan State University, Loyola Marymount University, Temple University, Texas A&M University, University of Colorado-Denver and University of Maryland. This program is partially funded by the U.S. Department of Education.
