An important part of our mission at the Center for Global Business is to connect the diverse members of the Smith School community to the world and the world to the Smith School. We strive to provide the Smith community with opportunities to gain a global mindset and build international business skills. Although travel is limited this year, we are leveraging technologies and resources to engage with the world in new and innovative ways. In this context, the Center for Global Business introduces the #KeepGlobalSmith initiative. This initiative seeks to support and encourage innovations in global teaching and programming that gives students opportunities to engage with peers, companies, content, and cultures around the world in new and exciting ways.
Our #KeepGlobalSmith initiative includes:
The grant can be used to support any teaching activity that significantly enhances global learning. Applications are rolling, but due July 13 for best consideration for fall semester 2020 funding.
The Center for Global Business has curated a list of resources to assist faculty with the internationalization of their course content. Resources include case databases, simulations, podcasts, webinars, cultural intelligence assessments, and more. This list will be updated regularly and continue to grow as we identify additional resources.
The Center for Global Business is working on a variety of new programs and opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students to engage with the world. The current virtual environment makes it possible for us to connect students and industry in novel and collaborative ways. We will showcase all of our new offerings at an open house in the fall – additional details to come.
Every Monday through Thursday from Noon to 2 p.m., meet on Zoom with a team member from the Center for Global Business. During these brief drop-in meetings, learn more about faculty teaching resources, new engaging student programming, and other opportunities for you to build your global mindset at home.
