CIDD Summer Programs
CIDD sponsors International Summer Schools on member campuses or sites.
The International Summer School Program on the beautiful campus of Coastal Carolina University (CCU) focuses on the development of a better understanding of the social and business environment of the United States of America. “Doing Business in the USA” includes a combination of lectures, discussions, case studies and field trips to provide a multifaceted approach of understanding the evolution and current conditions of business within the United States. Professors are drawn from a variety of fields to provide a multidisciplinary focus for the program. Field trips include visits to local companies and day trips to international business concerns.
The consortium supports international conferences at member universities which deal with international business education. For example, the two-day conference “The Next Decade Challenges for Business” held at the Riga International School of Economics and Business Administration (RISEBA) was co-sponsored by CIDD, and the conference proceedings published jointly.
