FDIB Ireland

About the Program

The University of Connecticut School of Business Center for International Business Education and Research (CIBER) is pleased to announce the Faculty Development in International Business (FDIB) program Ireland: An Economic Renaissance. This new FDIB program will provide the participants with a greater understanding of Ireland's economic resurgence over the last two decades created through increased FDI, expanded exporting, a focus on high tech innovative entrepreneurship and a commitment to strengthening the international financial services sector.

This program is designed for faculty from business, international business, economics and international studies interested in using the example of Ireland in their curriculum, business outreach and research. CIBER also welcomes business professionals from aerospace, financial and manufacturing companies to join the program.  A portion of the program will take place in Shannon looking at the world's oldest Free Trade Zone, and Shannon's "Aerospace Cluster." The program will include business visits to Irish businesses, multi-national corporate offices, government organizations, financial sector companies, and will incorporate lectures, discussion sessions, and cultural excursions. Participants will have the opportunity to network with academics and business representatives.
