Beijing, China - January 5, 2012 — The University of Maryland’s Dingman Center for Entrepreneurship at the Robert H. Smith School of Business awarded $10,000 to winners of the 2012 China Business Plan Competition, in partnership with the Guanghua School of Management at Peking University in Beijing. The January 5 contest to present the best business plan pitch also included Chinese teams from Tianjin and Zhejiang Universities and Smith’s Israel partner school, the Technion—Israeli Institute of Technology.
Smith’s Office of Global Initiatives hosted 75 Chinese MBA students from Peking University’s Guanghua School of Management in Beijing – one of China’s premiere business schools – for two weeks last month in College Park. The students, most of whom had never been to the United States, traveled to Maryland to experience business education in an American setting.
The two groups were on campus from July 7 to 19 and attended special courses with Smith faculty Rosallina Ferraro, Xiaohui Gao, Brent Goldfarb, Mary Harms, Sunil Mithas, Janet Wagner, Liu Yang and Jie Zhang.
