University of St. Gallen
International Faculty Development Programme
Last year the University of St.Gallen successfully launched its new International Faculty Development Programme (IFDP). The primary mission of this program is to assist and support faculty in their professional and international development. The University of St. Gallen seeks to attract motivated and renowned guest lecturers to spend time at their institution. Various options are available for international faculty to chose from:
- Guest lectures
- Guest faculty stays
- Research stays
- Guest professorships
- The teaching requirements can be fulfilled in the form of a block seminar.
For more information about the IFDP and to apply please visit their website: http://www.unisg.ch/en/Studium/Austauschprogramme/Dozierendenaustausch/Incoming.aspx
Summer Teaching Abroad
(Faculty Paid Participation) To provide McCombs faculty with a stimulating teaching opportunity abroad while supporting CIBER’s summer programs for BBA and MPA students.
CIBER administers a variety of summer programs for McCombs students, based at our international partner schools abroad. Faculty from both McCombs and the partner school teach in these programs and we welcome opportunities to talk to faculty interested in the programs that we presently offer or who would like to propose something new. These programs offer the possibility of:
- Small classes (usually 25-35 students).
- Teaching (off-load) in a fairly compressed time frame, often in a course split between two faculty members.
- Classes well spaced to allow time for personal development.
- Contact with faculty members from partner schools.
- Sometimes teaching specialized courses not available at McCombs.
For information on existing programs: contact Maria Terrazas Carbajal, CIBER Summer Programs Coordinator, at (512) 471-1625 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
For new program proposals: contact David Platt, CIBER Director, at (512) 471-3518 or email@example.com.

Doctoral Internationalization Consortium
To provide select McCombs doctoral students (and faculty members with international interests) exposure to international research questions that are well established in the core academic disciplines.
McCombs CIBER is part of a consortium of research-oriented CIBERs (including Duke, Wharton, UCLA, Michigan, Washington, and Purdue) that offers a series of Doctoral Internationalization Conferences. Each conference addresses international research questions in one of the core business disciplines. McCombs CIBER and the McCombs Marketing Department host the Marketing conference every two to three years (most recently in July 2009). CIBER also pays travel expenses for one or two McCombs doctoral students to attend the conferences in other disciplines that are hosted by other consortium members. When we receive notice of an upcoming conference, we will contact the doctoral coordinator for the relevant department.
We also pay travel expenses for McCombs faculty invited to present at these consortia and, if funds permit, would also pay for other tenure-track faculty members who wish to explore international aspects of their discipline, to attend as well (subject to agreement by the hosting school).
