GW-CIBER Student Activities
Summer Doctoral Institute for Research and Study on Institutions, Policies, and Development in International Business
The Summer Doctoral Institute (SDI) provides leading doctoral students from across the U.S. an opportunity to conduct research on our Center’s theme of Institutions, Policies, and Development in International Business, in collaboration with aligned GW faculty experts. Both doctoral and faculty participants are recruited from a wide range of fields, such as business, economics, political science, public administration, international relations, and sociology. The students live together for two months in GW housing on our downtown Washington, D.C. campus to promote interaction and the development of a scholarly community.
Global Business Consulting (GBC)
The Global Business Consulting (GBC) program is sponsored by a consortium of several CIBERs at leading business schools, which are all joined by the objectives of promoting cross-cultural business competence and bolstering international business in markets critical to U.S. competitiveness. GBC puts multi-university teams of graduate (MBA, MA, MS) students to work solving real problems faced by corporations and non-profit organizations.
Global MBA Consulting Abroad Program (CAP)
As part of the Global MBA curriculum, all first-year students participate in one of several Consulting Abroad Projects (CAP). A three-course sequence, taken during the spring semester, is designed to equip students with frameworks and skills to be implemented when leading their consulting projects. By the end of their first year of study all Global MBA students gain experience working on a faculty-mentored, team-based consultancy abroad.
