Marketing and Supply Chain & Operations major Carl Zwieg, ’16 BSB, earned the Josef Mestenhauser Student Award for Excellence in Campus Internationalization this year for his outstanding contributions to international education at the University of Minnesota.

Zwieg serves as president of GLOBE: a student organization that pairs incoming international exchange students with domestic students to ease their transition into an unfamiliar environment.

Each year, 75-100 exchange students contribute ideas and perspectives in Carlson School classrooms, helping to globalize the entire curriculum. Thanks to GLOBE, these students forge connections with U.S. students, educators, and companies—thus broadening their worldview.

"Internationalization at the Carlson School creates an environment that is dynamic and fruitful. Students can learn more about other cultures and share aspects from their own,” says Zwieg.

​Bestowed by the University’s Global Programs and Strategy alliance, the award honors Dr. Joseph Mestenhauser, Distinguished International Emeritus Professor. It embodies his long-held commitment to students.
