International Business Bootcamp
GW-CIBER’s International Business Bootcamp is a program designed for select students who are interested in expanding their knowledge of — and practical skills in — global business and trade. This multifaceted, co-curricular program involves a deep dive into learning about the mechanics of international trade through four main domain areas: Global Business Management, Global Marketing, Supply Chain Management, and Trade Finance. These domain areas are the core of the top international business professional certification, known as the Certified Global Business Professional (CGBP), which is offered by NASBITE International, the leading U.S. organization supporting the training and education in the field of global business. The bootcamp is a complement to traditional courses in international business, international trade, international economics and related areas, and teaches the practical aspects not widely covered in that coursework.
Summer Doctoral Institute for Research and Study on Institutions, Resilient Globalization and Sustainable Competitiveness
The Summer Doctoral Institute (SDI) provides leading doctoral students from across the U.S. an opportunity to conduct research on our center’s theme 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 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.
