The Center for International Business Education and Research (CIBER) at the University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business has announced it’s launching a five-part workshop series where business leaders with global aspirations can learn cross-border trade strategies. According to the Smith School, the Industry Professional Workshop Series in Export Management will start January 12, 2017, at the University of Maryland BioPark in Baltimore, MD.
In a press release, Rebecca Bellinger, director of the Office of Global Initiatives that houses the school’s CIBER program, said:
