CGB invites Maryland Smith undergraduate and graduate students to participate in the HUMLOG Challenge with the Global Business School Network. This year’s competition conference is entirely virtual, free of cost to UMD students, and includes the opportunity for students to compete in a team case competition focused on humanitarian logistics challenges with a $5,000 first-place prize.
The HUMLOG Challenge
The Learners Track features a virtual team competition designed to engage students from across the globe who have an interest in humanitarian logistics and a desire to serve their community. The Covid-19 pandemic has tested communities across the world on preparedness and resilience. In the context of accelerated climate change and population growth, the current trend of frequent major disasters is expected to increase. Called The HUMLOG Challenge, the student competition will focus on Community Disaster Resilience. Teams will be challenged to identify a locally relevant natural disaster and develop a solutions packet that will address the community’s preparedness, response and level of resilience. The winning team will receive $5,000 USD towards their continuing education. Learn more about the competition.
