College Park, Md., March 14, 2013 - Competition was so close among University of Maryland student social entrepreneurs that judges awarded two top winners in a recent “No Limits Social Impact Pitch Competition.”
Just before launching their real estate panel discussion, the moderator and panelists abruptly abandoned the stage and instructed the audience to encircle and join them on the main floor. An intimate, spirited discussion ensued as both experts and inquisitive MBAs delved into the state of Washington, D.C.’s commercial real estate industry and its broader implications.
The passion for sustainable business practices and fostering a work-place culture centered on creating social value was palpable at the Robert H. Smith School of Business’ 5th Annual Social Enterprise Symposium on March 1, 2013.
The Smith School’s Dean G. “Anand” Anandalingam will step down at the end of his five-year term on June 30, 2013. He plans to pursue leadership in the area of innovation and entrepreneurship in partnership with institutions worldwide.
