Institute for Global Business

The Institute for Global Business (IGB) was established in 1996 as an academic unit within the College of Business Administration at The University of Akron through a grant from the State of Ohio.

The mission of IGB is to educate high quality international business students with requisite skills and preparation to assume leadership roles in the global business model. We offer programs in international business at the undergraduate and graduate level. With a focus on providing to our students holistic academic experience with significant global learning opportunities, the IGB has been an integral component of CBA since its inception. Dedicated faculty have varied international experience and expertise and are committed to student success and pursue an active research agenda to provide enriched learning opportunities for students.
