Center for Global Business Holds First Spring Break Photo Competition

Apr 01, 2019


Santiago Luna, the coordinator for the Center for Global Business at the University of Maryland's Robert H. Smith School of Business, writes about a photo contest held recently by the center.

The Center for Global Business (CGB) launched the first annual spring break photo competition open to Smith students, faculty, and staff. In an effort to further promote the value and benefits of a global mindset, CGB created a platform for the Smith community to share their global experiences over spring break.

“Travel, in and of itself, almost always presents an opportunity to learn and expand one’s horizons,” said Rebecca Bellinger, executive director of CGB, “The center for global business can serve as an avenue for the Smith community to share these experiences, and I hope this competition inspires our students to enroll in one of our many programs and take their global mindsets to the next level.”

During the week of March 16–24, CGB received entries from students, faculty, and staff. Three winners were selected and will receive a gift from the center for their participation.

The winners for the 2019 spring break photo competition are:

“Hello from Wild and Mexico” — Mexico
Ryan Collins, full-time MBA student, spring 2020

“Light and Smile” — Grand Canyon, United States
Jongwan Won, full-time MBA student, spring 2020
