Supporting the Center for Global Business
We’ve launched the #KeepGlobalSmith campaign for 2020-21 to invite supporters to share our commitment to global learning and engagement at a time when we aren’t able to travel to experience the world in person.
The guiding principle behind the #KeepGlobalSmith campaign is simple: We have an obligation to our students to prepare them to lead in the global economy. Business doesn’t stop being global just because we’re living, learning, and teaching from our homes. And the virtual environment allows us to intentionally bring students together who might not otherwise have the chance to meet.
- We are supporting faculty in leveraging technology to bridge virtual classrooms on campus with those at partner institutions abroad.
- We are creating new virtual exchanges to give students at Maryland the opportunity to meet and engage with peers in other countries.
- We are launching new case challenges that bring students together from around the world to work together toward a common goal.
The innovative programs we are developing for the students at Maryland Smith require investment to be both scalable and sustainable. For a sense of the impact that keeping global can make, visit our Keeping Global in 2020 wall that was used to celebrate International Education Week.
Join us in keeping global at Smith.
Gifts to the center go toward student programming, including on-campus and virtual global learning activities and study abroad (when permitted). Experiential learning is at the core of every program that we design for students, and we strive to make every program both highly impactful and accessible to every student.
Future gifts can also go to provide financial support directly to students who participate in study abroad programs. We provide a scholarship to every business student who studies abroad and seek to increase the amount of each award to make these life-changing programs affordable.
