What is HEIBO?

The Higher Education International Business Officers (HEIBO – Pronounced Hi Bo) was founded in 2014 after the original members failed to find an existing professional network that met their needs. The membership now consists of over 100 financial professionals representing higher education institutions and global providers from across the country.

HEIBO strives to work in collaboration with other international education and higher education business networks. HEIBO is an educational association that supports higher education international business professionals who are passionate about quality education. The members of HEIBO are committed to developing and advancing the knowledge, skills, best practices, and network of professionals who provide financial, operational, and business leadership for global higher education.
