Welcome to the Center for Global Business
The Center for Global Business (CGB) is the driver of internationalization and global mindset education at the Smith School and a preferred partner for international commerce in the state of Maryland, specifically in regard to training and supporting students, companies, and current and future business leaders to engage successfully in global business.
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.
We connect faculty with global teaching resources, global opportunities, and international partners in order to support teaching innovations.
We support faculty to participate in Faculty Development in International Business programs around the world.
