Center for Global Business Studies

Global business is expanding twice as fast as domestic business, creating a need for education. The mission of the Center for Global Business Studies is presented here.

Dr. Fariborz Ghadar

Global business is growing at over twice the rate of domestic business. Spawned by this growth are international business issues that embody various regions and disciplines. As global business continues to grow and the economies of the world's nations become increasingly interdependent, the management of the firm will require a global perspective. The Center for Global Business Studies specializes in research concerning emerging functional business issues that shape the global environment. Its mission is to construct a coherent global perspective in business management, research, and education.

Alliances with corporations and institutions around the world offer many opportunities, as well as challenges. Businesses and universities working together to educate executives and students can share their knowledge of the most recent business practices, theories, and research. Communication among this broad and international group requires long-distance educational opportunities offered through the use of new technologies. The Center for Global Business Studies is poised to link corporations and Penn State together and deliver programs designed for this diverse audience.
