CIBS offers faculty development opportunities, promotes campus internationalization initiatives, and hosts an annual conference on international business for theorists and practitioners in Northeast Florida and abroad.

Research & Conferences


The internationalization of the Coggin College of Business begins with a faculty that exhibits strong teaching credentials and outstanding scholarly work in the international business field. Coggin College of Business faculty are writing and teaching about the international aspects of accounting, economics, finance, logistics, management and marketing. These faculty are recognized through their affiliations with the Center for International Business Studies.

The interface of faculty scholarship and practitioner expertise is a key part of the International Business Flagship program. Our most recent conference, Value Creation in the Global Economy, was a great success. Now we are excited to host our first annual International Business Workshop Series and certificate program.
