The Center for Global Initiatives sponsors a fellowship for thought leaders from the United States and around the world to strengthen their business case writing and teaching skills and to collaborate with Darden faculty and students. Fellows come to Darden and work with Darden faculty and case writers to:
- collaborate on research, case writing and teaching materials development
- write cases based on their home countries
- observe classes to become more effective case teachers
Completed cases are made available through Darden Business Publishing. The IFC's Global Business School Network, an ongoing partner with the Center for Global Initiatives, recommends international fast-track junior faculty members to be fellows for the Center for Global Initiatives, which also provides logistical support to assist in living adjustments.
