2022 International Education Week

International Education Week is a joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education “to promote programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn, and exchange experiences.”

The Center for Global Business (CGB) will host a week of activities to recognize the global mindset, activities, research, and global footprint of the Smith School from November 14 through 18, 2022.

During our week of activities, we will showcase videos featuring Maryland Smith faculty, staff, and students answering, “What does global mindset mean to you.” Stay tuned to see why #SmithKnowsGlobal during #IEWatSmith.
