Center Directors in the News

 Michelle Casario

MCGL Co-Faculty Director Michelle Casario, PhD, provided analysis and assessment on a range of global trade issues for local and national media outlets. She did several interviews on trade tensions between the US and China and the impact of tariffs on the US economy with CBS MoneyWatch and the Philadelphia Inquirer. She also commented on the recently negotiated United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) as well as the state of US-EU trade relationships and the potential for the implementation of tariffs on the EU auto industry in interviews with CBS MoneyWatch.

MCGL Co-Faculty Director Jonathan Doh, PhD, also commented on current trade sessions, appearing twice on the syndicated NPR program Marketplace, where he was interviewed regarding US-China trade tensions, the USMCA, and other trade and investment issues. Dr. Doh has also been active in making presentations to business and academic groups. These include presentations to the Academy of International Business in Minneapolis, the Academy of Management in Chicago, the Strategic Management Society in Paris, the University of Sydney, and several others.

Kim Cahill, MCGL director, gave two presentations examining the value of an international business education at the Academy of International Business in Minneapolis and the Academy of International Business Northeast in Philadelphia. These presentations reported on the preliminary survey results of a collaborative research project with members from CUIBE (Consortium for Undergraduate International Business Educators) exploring stakeholder feedback from deans, recruiters, students and alumni. The study aims to identify key areas of value—language, international experience, intercultural competency—and major trends in international business education.
