About GLOBEIntroduction to the GLOBE Center - Download the PDF brochure here
The GLOBE Center at the Monterey Institute of International Studies provides education, consulting and research in the rapidly expanding area of business globalization and localization. The Center assists companies in adapting their products and strategies for a global marketplace. Differences in language, culture, legal regulations or business structure often require companies to make changes to their products, business processes, and resource allocations to better reach target customers abroad.
The Center helps companies assess their globalization or localization needs, develop strategies and facilitate implementations through the Center's executive development, consulting and research services. The Center also develops curricula in globalization/localization for use in MBA courses and training programs. Customized business courses are provided for students enrolled in the Masters of Translation and Localization program in the Graduate School of Translation and Interpretation as well as for students from the Institute's other graduate schools.
GLOBE is managed through the Fisher International MBA Program, which collaborates with the other graduate schools at the Monterey Institute as well as the Monterey Bay International Trade Association, The Marina Technology Cluster, and the U.S. Export Assistance Center of the United States Department of Commerce in Monterey.
