Dr. Banerjee-Batist is passionate about internationalizing her curriculum. She has infused international content in several of her classes, some with the help of grants from the Center of European Studies at the University of Florida. She leads Study Abroad trips to Spain with a business-focused curriculum, where students visit Spanish organizations and multinationals operating in Spain. She has led a COIL (Collaborative Online International Learning) program with a management university in India for two years in a row. Students learn about how managers in different social and cultural contexts (India and the United States) lead organizations for excellence in both performance and employee satisfaction.
