Having a global perspective is critical to leading in today’s business world. At the Smith School, students take part in international experiences abroad and at home to shape their view of the world and give them the practical preparation needed to excel and lead.
In this edition of Smith Business Close-Up with the University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business, Kislaya Prasad talks about the impact international experiences can have on perspective and career.
Professor Prasad is director of the Center for Business Education and Research, federally funded by the Department of Education to foster students’ international understanding. The center supports global initiatives at the Smith School, including global study trips, research and events that explore international themes. The center is very involved with Smith’s new MBA curriculum that focuses on ensuring each student engages in experiential learning projects to build business leadership skills.
Smith Business Close-Up is co-produced by the Robert H. Smith School of Business and Maryland Public Television. The television segment focuses on the latest thinking in business management, and features in-depth interviews with Smith School faculty and other members of the school’s community of business leaders.
