The Robert H. Smith School of Business infuses global opportunities and perspectives into our students’ education to create a global mindset. Our student population of 5,100 comes from 96 countries and 30 percent of our 200 faculty hail from beyond U.S. borders. Many others teach and conduct research on a variety of international business topics. Smith is proud to have a truly international curriculum which includes a strong undergraduate International Business major with more than 200 students and nearly 20 courses that focus on international business and cross-cultural issues.

The Center for International Business Education and Research (CIBER) is an integral component of the Office of Global Initiatives. Smith CIBER is a national resource center for teaching, research and outreach in international business and related fields. Established in 2006, CIBER implements major initiatives and activities such as the Emerging Markets Forum focused on four themes: government policy, emerging markets, global entrepreneurship, and sustainability. CIBER is grateful to the U.S. Department of Education, the Smith School, and the University for their generous support of the Center.
