Cuba: Economic Opportunities and Challenges
The University of Maryland's Robert H. Smith School of Business CIBER is leading a faculty development program to Cuba in May 2016. The goal of the program is to enable participants to develop a better understanding of the working of the Cuban economy within its broader historical, political and cultural context, to get a sense of the changes that are underway both domestically and in the context of the evolving US-Cuba relationship, and to appreciate the business prospects that have opened up. The program will also enable participants to develop connections with counterparts at Cuban universities.Link: http://www.rhsmith.umd.edu/centers-excellence/ciber/initiatives-programs/faculty/fdib-cuba
On March 11, 2011, Japan suffered a triple disaster - earthquake, tsunami and nuclear crisis at the Fukushima Daiichi site. These three disasters have presented Japan with major challenges to overcome. One problem which has faced Japan has been the drop of foreign exchange and academic collaboration between Japanese universities and their overseas counterparts. This program hopes to overcome some of the fear and misconceptions of Japan post-3/11 and to show that Japan is still a thriving economy and worth learning about. This program will travel the length of Japan, from the disaster affected areas in the northeast to the Kansai region in the southwest. We will work with some of Japan's top-rated universities, as well as experiencing some of the business, culture and history of Japan.Link: http://www.scheller.gatech.edu/news-events/events/event.html?event_id=cc4828777f0000016fe33a04e4307ae0
