About CIBU

Leading the way in global learning

Universities like to tout their past, and we’ll get to that, but first let’s talk about the future –specifically you’re future. The bottom line is, the world your parents (and for that matter most teachers) grew-up in, just isn’t the same world anymore. The jobs they learned to train for either no longer exist, or exist in radically different forms. Today’s world is global and growing ever more so everyday.

Twenty years from now you don’t want to be old news; you want to be cutting edge. That is what CIBU is all about. We don’t advocate ignoring the past; it’s the foundation upon which today’s exciting business enterprises are built. But you need to know how to use it to spring-forward and shine in our ever-changing global world. That’s where CIBU excels.

It started way back in 1731, when a man named Niels Brock was born. Humble and honest, he grew up to be one of Denmark’s greatest merchants –and in some ways, the forerunner of today’s international business world. He was willing to try thing’s that others hadn’t tried, to go places others wouldn’t go, and eventually to educate others, just because it was the right thing to do. He believed in a global education.

He dreamt of a school of commerce that would provide an education for young, self-made entrepreneurs like you.

He wasn’t the only one dreaming that dream, in 1995 a group of like-minded businessmen, right here in San Diego, had the same idea. It is through their efforts (and a number of name changes) that CIBU came to be.

From both sides of the globe, it was pretty easy to see that things were changing –that tomorrow’s businesses, however large or small, would be competing against the world, and not just their little corner of it. It just made sense for the two schools to join forces, so in 2015, that’s what they did.

That’s where you come in.

Our focus isn’t on making money –we’re a not-for-profit organization that is fully accredited- our focus is giving you the best possible international education. This means we keep our classes intimate, exotic and international. But you can read more about that on our Academic Programs page.

What we want you to take away from our history is that we at Niels Brock/CIBU know that just because we have a great deal of experience, a long history and a strong network, we can’t run on routine. We do everything in our power to continue to develop, and always strive to incorporate the latest knowledge and technologies into our educational methods—and to continue to find new campuses, and new ways, for you to study around the world.

Yes, study around the world. Niels Brock/CIBU has campuses in a growing number of countries including, Denmark, Myanmar, China, Vietnam and the US. Start in San Diego and then move around the world if you want –gaining experiences and contacts. All of our degree programs are taught in English, and you’ll find most of our programs on all campuses worldwide, so your study abroad is seamless and hassle free.

Our just stay in beautiful San Diego and let the world come to you. Over the years, students representing more than 80 countries have attended our programs. You don’t have to go abroad to get a truly international education.

So whether you look back, or keep looking forward, Niels Brock/CIBU is leading the way in global learning.
