The Alberta School of Business recognizes that the twenty-first century needs educators who can internationalize their outlook and operations, and maintain effective partnerships worldwide. The mission of The Centre for International Business Studies (CIBS) is to lead the School's efforts to excel as a global centre for management advance. To accomplish this, CIBS oversees a range of internationally-focused training programs, executive forums, and education partnership tours both at home and abroad.
We strive to foster best fits between resident executive development resources and needs within the global community for short term management education and training. We do this by building on Alberta's geographic and institutional strengths in oil and gas organization, resource-focused accounting and finance, corporate social responsibility and sustainability, supply chain and project management, as well as in public administration, governance and strategic management.
CIBS in brief:
- An Alberta School of Business centre for higher level training, leadership outreach and research
- A significant provider of Canadian executive management and technical expertise to the global market
- Party with a wide range of partners abroad in the research, planning, and execution of both open-registry and customized programs (see top right sidebar)
