Georgia State University‘s Robinson College of Business has received an $188,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Education to help improve international business education.

The money will be used to form a regional alliance of two- and four-year colleges in Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia to improve core courses in international education, train faculty and strengthen links between the schools, according to a Robinson news release.

Earlier this year, Robinson was awarded a $1.5 million federal grant to establish a Center for International Business Education (CIBER). The new grant will be used to complement CIBER’s work, said Tamer Cavusgil, director of Robinson’s  Institute of International Business.
