For the fifteenth year in a row, the University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School hosted 45 MBA students from Australia’s RMIT University as part of a collaboration between the two schools.

The two-week Business and Cultural Tour was the highlight of the schools ongoing relationship, which includes semester exchange programs, research and business connections, and a two-week BMGT course taught for Smith students in Melbourne by Clinical Associate Professor Mary Harms.

Coordinated by Smith’s Office of Global Initiatives (OGI), the tour includes academic classes taught by Smith School professors, industry and government site visits (i.e. World Bank, GE Healthcare, CapitalOne etc.), cultural activities such as touring Washington D.C. and Annapolis, and finishing off with networking happy hours and dinners with Smith’s own MBA’s.

RMIT students will return the favour and host Smith’s students in late May 2015. Smith students will participate in a range of academic and cultural activities before they begin their eight-week internships in Sydney.
