Host: Anders T. Rosen
Roundtable Guests: Janelle Fore, Andrew Hoke, Prof. Dorothy Siaw-Asamoah
How does a program designed originally for travel and experiences outside of the classroom survive a pandemic? That question became a reality for the UB School of Management’s Global Programs Office last Spring. The answer came through hard work, adaptation and creative design from the team at Global Programs. On the latest episode of the Manage-A-Bull podcast, host Anders T. Rosen speaks with Professor Dorothy Siaw-Asamoah, faculty director of Global Programs, graduate assistant Janelle Fore, and incoming graduate assistant Andrew Hoke. Their conversation touched upon Global Programs’ ability to pivot in the face of the pandemic, the myriad opportunities for students to develop a global mindset and why the future is only getting brighter for this program that has already impacted more than 450 students in only three years.
