The Faculty Development in International Business (FDIB) - MENA program is
offered annually by a consortium of CIBER universities. This program,
funded in part by the U.S. Department of Education and lead-managed by the
CIBERs of Brigham Young University and The George Washington University,
focuses on providing participating faculty a unique international study
tour opportunity, which will ultimately assist the United States in its
international competitiveness via pedagogy, research, and business
outreach. The objective of the FDIB-MENA program is to raise faculty
awareness of the economic, political and cultural environments that exist
in the Middle East and Africa today, and, ultimately, to leverage that
first-hand awareness into competence and expertise in classrooms and on
research campuses throughout the United States.
