The Center for Global Business (CGB) at Maryland Smith successfully completed its third year of the Maryland Global Export Consulting program, a collaboration between CGB and the Maryland Department of Commerce that offers Maryland-based companies the opportunity to work with a team of the school’s MBA or undergraduate students to address challenges companies are facing in going global. This year, two teams of MBA students and one team of nine undergraduates applied their classroom learning to real-world settings and provided data and recommendations to Maryland healthcare companies seeking to take their goods into the global marketplace.
