Sowing the Seeds of Global Entrepreneurship
Over six months ago, Amel Abed Mohammed Ali arrived in Winter Park. A professor of operation management and head of the department of industrial management at Babylon University in Iraq, she came to Central Florida as the inaugural scholar for the Global Links program, a collaborative initiative between Rollins College, Tupperware Brands, and the U.S. Department Of State Secretary’s Office of Global Women’s Issues.
As part of this 12-month program, she will spend some of her time in the classrooms at Crummer Graduate School of Business and the College of Professional Studies. She’ll also be at the headquarters of Tupperware Brands gleaning theoretical and real-world business acumen that she can take back with her to Iraq to share with the burgeoning female entrepreneurs in her university and community.
