Robert Wang Center for International Business Education and Research (CIBER)

Designated by the U.S. Department of Education since 1989, the Wang Center offers business executives, academic professionals, and students in the Lower Mississippi Delta Region the opportunity to become culturally conscious and globally competent in our diverse global society. By developing results-oriented programs that foster international competencies among students, faculty, and business professionals, the Wang Center advances the body of knowledge in international business and business teaching. The Wang Center continually responds to emerging needs and growth opportunities while maintaining its focus on each constituent's unique needs. The Wang CIBER encompasses four main activity areas: Curriculum Development, Faculty Development, Research, and Business Outreach. Since its inception, the Wang Center has been directed by Dr. Ben L. Kedia, holder of the Wang Chair of Excellence in International Business at The University of Memphis.

Interested in Pursuing a Degree with an International Component or Hiring an Internationally Competent Employee?

The development of new and innovative courses ensures that students are receiving leading business knowledge to make them globally competitive. Consider the wide array of degrees with an international focus offered by The University of Memphis.

The International MBA Program created and administered by the Wang Center develops the business skills, country understanding, cultural competencies, and global mindset to do business just about anywhere in the world. Experiential learning is at the heart of the IMBA Program, which features a mandatory overseas summer study session and a full-time fall semester internship at a foreign host company. Seven business tracks are available -- each specially designed to ensure long-term success in an international environment. Visit our web site to learn more: http://imba.memphis.edu/.
