Undergraduate students at the Robert H. Smith School of Business completed another successful cycle of the faculty-led, short-term study abroad programs. This past winter semester, the Center for Global Business offered five programs that explored different topics in social entrepreneurship and innovation, accounting, supply chain management, globalization, and Brexit.
In spring 2017, dozens of Finance Fellows tackled a case entitled “INFINITI HR – Target or Acquirer?” for their annual Emerging CFOs Case Competition held at the University of Maryland's Robert H. Smith School of Business. A couple of weeks ago, the authors of the case, Karen Hallows and Susan White, who both teach in the finance department, presented the same case at an international conference and were awarded the prestigious Jonathan Welch Award for the best finance, accounting or economics case.
Fifteen participants from colleges and universities throughout the United States traveled to Cuba from May 21-28, 2017, with the University of Maryland’s Center for International Business Education and Research (UMD CIBER).
