MELBOURNE, FLA.—The Florida Institute of Technology’s Nathan M. Bisk College of Business recently joined the Southeast U.S. Higher Education Consortium for International Business. The consortium is a partnership between colleges and universities in Georgia, Alabama, Florida, Tennessee, North Carolina and South Carolina. Florida Tech’s membership is among more than 40 other institutions in the Southeast region.
“The consortium provides a collaborative, higher education community of universities in our region,” said Annie Becker, dean of the Nathan M. Bisk College of Business. “We look forward to working with these universities to improve the global awareness and education of our students.”
The consortium was initiated by Georgia State University’s Center for International Business Education and Research (CIBER). Its purpose was to create a central agency to share information, including faculty development, teaching material preparation, and proposal and grant writing. Students attending consortium colleges and universities will have a chance to participate in study- and work-abroad programs.
The Nathan M. Bisk College of Business at Florida Tech offers undergraduate degrees in accounting, business administration, marketing, business and environmental studies, information systems and international business.
