Grant Goes to Online Resource for Consulting Abroad

Anna Helm

Anna Helm, assistant professor of international business, secured a grant from the Swedish Women’s Educational Association (SWEA) for her “CleanTech Resource: U.S.-Swedish Perspectives” project.  The $3,000-grant provided by SWEA’s D.C. chapter, will help to fund a Web site aimed at promoting Swedish companies working in clean technology, and sharing their information with the global community.

Helm, who also serves as business-language coordinator for the GW Center for International Business & Research (GW-CIBER), a research institute housed within GWSB, has worked with the Swedish American Chambers of Commerce to develop residency programs in Sweden for the Global MBA program’s Consulting Abroad Project (CAP).  Global MBA candidates are currently working with three Swedish firms to promote clean-energy projects as part of the spring 2012 CAP.

According to Helm, the SWEA grant will directly benefit the overseas residency program.  “The project idea is to develop a resources site for future Sweden CAPers,” she said.
