PACIBER faculty are interested in collaboration with government on grant opportunities.
PACIBER was the recipient of a three-year program funded by the U.S. Dept. of Education’s Fund for the Improvement of Post-Secondary Educations (FIPSE) on development of an international diploma associated with a Master’s of Business Administration (MBA) degree for graduate students in the US and around the Pacific Rim.
PACIBER has worked with USAID on proposals on economic development in South and Southeast Asia.
Most US PACIBER members are funded by the Title VI Center for International Business Education and Research, with a goal of promoting US international business and trade to improve US business competitiveness.
