Faculty Development in International Business (FDIB)

The Great Resilience of ASEAN: Perspectives from Singapore and the Philippines

May 15-24, 2023


For the past four decades, the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) has consistently been one of the best-performing regional blocs in the world, a region of geopolitical and economic importance to the United States and the global economy. However, as with other world regions, ASEAN has dealt with multiple challenges in recent years—a global pandemic, macroeconomic, social, environmental, and technological disruptions, and geopolitical tensions. Despite these challenges, the region is projected to be a bright and resilient spot in the global economy.

CU Denver CIBER is pleased to announce the offering of the 2023 ASEAN Faculty Development in International Business Program (ASEAN FDIB). The program will examine significant and unique challenges facing ASEAN, how the association addresses them, the region’s prospects for moving forward, and its implications for US global competitiveness. Particular emphasis will be given to the perspectives of two key ASEAN member countries—Singapore and the Philippines.

Key Program Features

  • Field visits to and presentations by leading local, US, and foreign companies in Singapore and the Philippines.
  • Briefings/fireside chats with business executives, scholars, and government officials from Singapore and the Philippines.
  • Cultural visits and events (to selected sites in Singapore and a planned 1.5-day weekend visit to an environmental sustainability hub in the Philippines).
  • An opportunity to network with faculty, practitioners, and consultants who are doing work on ASEAN and related topics.
  • Invitation to post-program webinars on ASEAN and related topics.
