University of Maryland: International Business Agility Labs

University of Maryland: International Business Agility Labs

Published: 14 September 2021


The International Business Agility Labs, offered through the Robert H. Smith School of Business at University of Maryland, are short-term virtual case challenges that allow undergraduate students to learn from global business leaders, collaborate with international peers, and focus on business resilience. Students will benefit from exposure to an international company, work on teams with business students around the world, and gain hands-on case experience to build their resumes and CVs. 

IB Agility Lab: FinTech in Singapore
Program dates: 14 - 29 October 2021

IB Agility Lab: Sustainability in Iceland
Program dates: 4-19 November 2021

Each IB Agility Lab will feature:

  • Live case from a non-U.S. company
  • Students placed on mixed multinational teams
  • Introduction to doing business in the country of focus
  • Virtual cultural activity and student mixer
  • Asynchronous and synchronous sessions

The live case for each lab will be from a company based outside of the U.S. and will focus on one of the following cross-functional themes: fintech, sustainability, e-commerce, and innovation. Students will hear directly from business leaders about the business problem before presenting their analysis and recommendations to the company and panel of judges.

Each IB Agility Lab will be completely virtual and will include synchronous and asynchronous sessions. Round one of the competition will be a recorded presentation submission and round two of the competition (final round) will be live. The exact timing of each lab will be announced closer to the start date and will vary based on the time zones of the company and the participants. All students will be expected to adapt to working across time zones, as this is the reality of doing business across borders.


The IB Agility Labs are open to undergraduate business majors and minors who are in at least their 2nd year.
