Undergraduate student Perveen Gulati, class of 2019, finance and information systems major, writes about the Global Open House, held on September 13, 2018, at the University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business.
The Center for Global Business (CGB) at the University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business successfully hosted its third annual Global Open House on Thursday, September 13, 2018. The center showcased all of the global opportunities available to students at the Smith School including study abroad programs, global internships, on-campus programs, scholarships, case competitions and more. The CGB team and students who had participated in past study abroad or on-campus global programs came together to offer information and advice on these opportunities.
Attending students, both undergraduate and graduate, left feeling excited to explore how they could improve their global mindset with the breadth of options available to them. Senior student and past participant in the CIBER Case Challenge, Isaac Lerman, said that he was “thrilled to see how many students were not only interested in traveling to cool places but also how they can put an international perspective on the lessons they have learned in classes.”
There was also a global trivia game that enabled students to test their knowledge and learn more about the language, culture, and business of other countries. Students who answered questions correctly earned prizes such as hats, laptop stickers, or wall pennants. Smith School junior, James Wang, won the day by correctly answering all twenty questions.
