Stanford Graduate Business School - Center for Global Business & Economy
About the Center for Global Business & Economy
The Center for Global Business and the Economy (CGBE) is a division of the Graduate School of Business at Stanford University that emphasizes research, teaching, and course development resources on global business issues. Founded in 2004, the center investigates the increasing complexities of global-scale business: running operations across dispersed geographies, in a variety of cultural settings, and under different economic, legal and political institutions. Given these challenges and the increasing scale of international business, CGBE aims to equip students with the mindset and knowledge required to manage effectively in the global environment.
