The International Business Center at the Joseph M. Katz Graduate School of Business develops, operates, and supports programs designed to build international competence and expertise in business students, faculty, and practitioners, and it helps businesses to enhance their international competitiveness. Open to business students of all academic backgrounds, the center focuses on building international competency and cultural awareness, with a particular focus on emerging markets in Asia, Africa, Europe, and South America.

Since its founding in 1989, the International Business Center’s faculty research grant program has provided funding to Katz and CBA faculty for the purpose of defraying the incremental costs incurred in connection with international research projects. The center is excited to now take its efforts to the next level. Globalism is an important strategic thrust at Pitt Business, and the IBC will continue to develop and help launch student-focused programs designed to prepare students for a global workplace.
