Dear Colleague:

The University of Colorado Denver CIBER invites you to participate in the January 5-15, 2016 ASEAN faculty development in international business program featuring one of the most dynamic and important regions in Asia and the world – the Association of Southeast Asian Nations. If it were a single country, ASEAN would be the world’s 7th largest economy with a 2014 GDP of over $2.5 trillion and a population of over 600 million.

Strategically, $5.3 trillion of global trade passes through ASEAN waters annually punctuating the international importance for the region’s stability and security.  The US is ASEAN’s third largest trading partner and over 3 million Americans visit ASEAN annually.  Almost $100 billion of US goods and services exports go to the ASEAN countries annually with 7% of export-dependent US jobs supported by ASEAN exports. 

We invite you and your colleagues to participate in this ten day program and examine the dynamics of integration that are taking place in the ASEAN region as viewed from two key countries: Singapore and the Philippines. The program will encompass company and cultural site visits, and briefings by business experts, officials on ASEAN and the ASEAN Economic Community, and academic thought leaders.

The faculty program fee is $4500 based on single occupancy; the fee for spouses or adult guests (at least 21 years of age, lodging with their faculty or business professional sponsor) is $3750.  The fee includes hotel, many meals, transportation from Singapore to the Philippines, in-country transportation, site visits, and cultural tours. It does not include airfare from your home to Singapore and back to your home country from the Philippines, incidental expenses, tips, passport and visa fees, and several meals. Guests may participate in either the business or concurrent guest program.

Applications will be accepted until October 22, 2015 at For additional information, please visit  and questions can be answered by contacting [log in to unmask] or 303-315-8887.
