The Ahlers Center for International Business at the University of San Diego
The Ahlers Center for International Business at the University of San Diego is one of the few privately endowed centers for international business in the world providing a wide array of opportunities for USD students and faculty as well as the business community.
Globalization has increased the need for managers to be developed with special skills and knowledge to handle the challenges and opportunities of an international marketplace. The Ahlers Center provides a number of programs to strengthen and acquire this needed expertise among faculty, students, and the business community. This has resulted in faculty with international expertise offering a variety of international courses and perspectives, students interested and experienced in international business, and a strong network with international business leaders. These activities link faculty, students, and international business leaders to share ideas and develop knowledge to operate more effectively in a global business environment.
The International Businesses Standards Organization
The International Businesses Standards Organization (IBSO) is a worldwide independent non-profit organization that creates, promotes, and maintains evaluative and ethical standards for international market players and for the global business community at large.
As a participant of the United Nations (UN) Global Compact, IBSO integrates UN core values in its daily activities. These principles and recommendations are an integral component of our projects. Though affiliated with the United Nations Global Compact, IBSO is a unique world-class standards organization. Our new initiative, the Worldwide Charter for Fair International Commerce, generally applies to the international market players. But as a minimal set of universal ethical rules, it allows for a wide range of organizations to formally proclaim acceptance of internationally recognized fair dealing principles and to add their value by promoting sustainable and positive business practices.
