Course Development

Until 2014, the International Business Center provided resources to help Pitt Business professors add international components to their courses. The IBC believes that every subject area can be taught from an international perspective without altering the subject's fundamental objectives. To this end, the IBC offerred support in the following ways:

  • Course Development Grants were available to support faculty at the undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral levels. Faculty added international perspective to courses, collaborated across disciplines, and utilized communications technology to host guest speakers via remote technology.
  • Business Language Course Development Grants. The IBC supported funding for courses like the Le Francais En Affaires, which featured an international approach to the language and covered business language, and where applicable, covered a variety of countries in which the language is spoken.
