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
