Fall has officially arrived and students are back on campus, whether here at the Carlson School in Minneapolis or at one of our 40 partner schools in cities around the world! While welcoming international colleagues and students to Minnesota back in the warmer months of summer, we also published our first Year in Review which highlights the activities and milestones for the 2012-2013 school year. This year we have 772 Carlson School students studying abroad, over 29 Carlson School faculty engaged in global initiatives, and 123 visiting exchange students studying here at the Carlson School and engaging over 130 companies around the globe. You can find the full report on our website.

This edition of Going Global highlights some of our key activities and impacts in fulfillment of our mission, including a celebration of several long-standing partnerships with universities around the globe, stories from alumni about how their global experiences while at the Carlson School impacted their career trajectories, and the launch of a new speaker series designed to highlight timely global business issues and to create a platform for those engaged in global business to create and develop a valuable network. We have heard from many of you who have global corporate responsibilities or wish to expand globally that such a forum is needed to both hear from experts and to network and share with colleagues in similar roles - we hope this is the start of a valuable resource for you!
We look forward to seeing you at Global Matters on November 20 at 3:30 p.m.
