Center for International Business
The Center for International Business (CIB) is dedicated to the creation and dissemination of research and teaching materials to assist students, faculty, and private and public sector decision-makers to better understand the contemporary international business environment and the best international business practices.
CIB activities take the form of academic seminars and symposia regularly held at the College of Business and Economics, working papers and proceedings that are published and disseminated through its web site, the design of course and seminar curricula, and the delivery of seminars to senior decision-makers in business and government
CIB draws upon the talents of faculty at Western Washington University, as well as associates at other academic institutions. While CIB takes a global perspective on international business issues, it particularly focuses on issues related to trade and investment with the Pacific Northwest’s primary international business partners - Northern Pacific Rim Countries such as Canada and Japan.
The Director, Dr. Steven Globerman, and assistant, Ms. Rochelle Sandeen welcome comments and suggestions about the CIB web pages, as well as CIB broader activities.
