The Maryland Smith chapter of the American Marketing Association drew several accolades at the 2021 International Collegiate Conference. The chapter was recognized as outstanding in three categories: Chapter Planning, Membership and Internal/External Communications. The 2020-21 academic year has been filled with challenges, but the chapter’s executive team demonstrated that they could rise to those challenges. The team successfully transitioned the chapter to the online environment, seeing an impressive 60% increase in membership applications.
This summer the Center for Global Business at the University of Maryland's Robert H. Smith School of Business organized the first Global Marketing Virtual Internship program, a program the center plans to make a yearly affair. Twenty-two Maryland Smith undergraduate students were selected from a pool of over 100 applicants to participate in the cohort-based 10-week program focused on website globalization and digital marketing. The students were placed with Maryland and D.C.-based companies that export their products and services abroad.
