Center for International Business Education and Research

Florida International University's Center for International Business Education and Research (FIU CIBER) was formally established in October, 1995, with the help of our Advisory Council and some financial support from the U.S. Department of Education.We deliver unique curricular, research, and outreach programs in a cost-effective way to advance FIU's agenda of international teaching, research and outreach. Our purpose is to make our various stakeholders--students, faculty, university community, South Florida business community and residents--more competitive in the global economy. We strive to promote U.S. competitiveness and to be a local and regional resource for ensuring that the U.S. is globally competitive.

18th Annual PDIB Mercosur 2014

The 18th Annual Mercosur PDIB program will explore how Brazil, Argentina, and Chile are dealing with the global recession, especially as those economies whose growth relied mostly on commodity prices, will be forced to change policies as a way to entice business creation. Countries such as Argentina and Brazil have showed solid growth during the last two years predominantly due to a strong commodity market. As the trend shifts to business climate as the main driver of growth, these nations must focus on policy changes. This may prove challenging in the southern cone, where governments, particularly Cristina Kishner in Argentina, have been confrontational toward businesses and the private sector in general, or Brazil where import and export policies are hampering investment and competitiveness.
