Publish Date: Tuesday, August 19, 2008

The Broad School's International Business Center recently received a grant for $179,772 to conduct benchmarking research and develop outreach programs in international business for the nation’s community colleges.

The Broad School, one of only 23 recipients of the grant from the Business and International Education (BIE) Program of the U.S. Department of Education, will conduct benchmarking research and outreach (faculty development) programs in international business for the nation’s more than 1,100 community colleges. The grant will also provide for the creation of online international resources for community college faculty and create a clearinghouse for international internships for students.

“As a premier research and outreach center in international business in the U.S., the focus on community colleges fits our long-standing tradition of targeting two-year schools with leading international business programs,” says Professor Tomas Hult, director of the International Business Center. “The benchmarking component of the current BIE project also fits our research mission well – we strive to be the leader in understanding the international business needs of community colleges.”
