News + Events : CoB receives BIE grant for $191,544 from the US Dept of Education


The US Department of Education has awarded the SFSU College of Business a two-year Business and International Education (BIE) grant worth $191,544 of federal funding to support our academic and wine industry outreach projects during 2005-07. The BIE team is comprised of a diverse and multi-disciplinary group of faculty from four departments that include three Professors and four Assistant Professors. The grant faculty are listed below and a BIE grant organizational chart, including brief project titles, is attached to provide an overview of the grant program itself. Team members include:

Rick Castaldi, (Management) BIE Grant Co-Director
Lutfus Sayeed, (Information Systems) BIE Grant Co-Director
Susan Cholette (Decision Sciences)
Micheal Meeks (Management)
Ron Purser (Management)
Ana Valenzula (Marketing)
Sameer Verma (Information Systems)

Including this new grant, the CoB has been awarded $713,044 of federal funds from four highly competitive BIE grant competitions since 1995. These eight years of funding have supported many CoB faculty and graduate students in the design and implementation of numerous academic and community outreach grant projects with the local wine industry. Each of these federal grant programs were designed to (1) enhance the international business education of our students, and (2) provide faculty and graduate student assistance to the 800+ small and family-owned wineries in Northern California to improve their domestic competitiveness and international trade capabilities. Each grant has produced significant academic contributions and outreach benefits to the <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" /?>California wine industry. We are particularly excited about our 2005-07 BIE grant program that officially commences July 1, 2005.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /?>
