Fundación Universitaria Iberoamericana (FUNIBER)
The Fundación Universitaria Iberoamericana (FUNIBER) is dedicated to distance and presence education.
The Fundacion Universitaria Iberoamericana (Ibero-American University Foundation - FUNIBER) uses as its framework the two worlds of university and training.
FUNIBER’s purpose is to broadcast and share Spanish knowledge with Ibero-American people. Since its foundation in 1997 in Barcelona, Spain, FUNIBER has grown continuously to become an academic and professional network across twenty-five countries.
FUNIBER is a scientific and investigative university institution that ties professional universities and institutions to offer a Global Education that respects local identities. FUNIBER’s three fundamental operative axes are:
-- Promote the creation of inter-university programmes (programmes between universities). FUNIBER promotes programmes that permit access to double-titled academic degrees. The studies are for Masters, but there are post-degree programmes integrated among them. On the one hand, Diplomas, Specializations, and Extension Courses, among others, that are of a shorter duration. On the other, classroom-based studies for a Doctorate Degree.
-- To support the development and activities of International Cooperation Projects. FUNIBER promotes cooperation and economic development, which is why it works in the field of training and participates in cooperation and development activities with a range of institutions who work on projects of development and/or international cooperation.
-- Solutions to custom-made education and knowledge management for businesses and institutions. On the one hand, FUNIBER develops and works with businesses, corporations, and business groups in a consultative role oriented towards the generation of custom-made educational programs. On the other, FUNIBER provides consultation in knowledge management processes, contributing innovations, and solutions that go from strategic-knowledge management models to systems based on TICs of Knowledge Corporative Portals.
The growing and global presence of FUNIBER is due to a teaching model that promotes the collaboration and cooperation among nations to enrich people formation. This model is the result of more than eight years of experience of FUNIBER teaching graduate distance semi-attending and non-attending virtual international projects of cooperation and formation with the enterprise. This guarantees a model that supply effective results in relation to the teaching investment assumed versus the return in knowledge formation and personal and organizational learning. All of this because FUNIBER’s educative model guarantees a high-quality global formation.
