CIBUL, the Centre for International Business at the University of Leeds, is the UK's premier research centre in international business, founded by the distinguished Professor Peter Buckley.
Since its launch in 1995, CIBUL has pursued a research strategy based on teamwork and co-authorship, well suited to the multidisciplinary nature of its field. Drawing on the resources of the internationally renowned University of Leeds, one of the largest research-led institutes in the UK, and of Leeds University Business School (3rd in Europe for research, FT 2006), CIBUL is able to unite the leading experts in international business.
