Biography

Teaching

Internationally, Dr. Marta Szabo White has lectured at The RONALD H. BROWN INSTITUTE for SUB-SAHARAN AFRICA and the UNIVERSITIÉ PANTHÉON-SORBONNE. She is the recipient of several teaching awards, including the 2004 Outstanding Teacher at Georgia State University, the 1999, 2003 and 2009 J. Mack Robinson College of Business Faculty Recognition Award for Outstanding Teaching, the 2002 Board of Advisors Teaching Excellence Award, the 2002 International Education Excellence Award, the 2005 Master Teacher Certificate Award and the nomination for the 2008 J. Mack Robinson College of Business Faculty Recognition Award for Outstanding Teaching.

Research

In addition to striving for excellence and innovation in the practice of teaching, many of her contributions to the scholarship of teaching stem from her collaborations with the Duke CIBER, which have resulted in the publication of several Cross-Cultural Negotiation Simulations; the implementation of the ALBION in China simulation in Singapore, detailed in a 2004 Special Issue of Global Business Languages; and more recently, her role as ICE Teaching Consortium Advisor, the dissemination of CultureActive [pioneered by Richard Lewis] and ICE [initiated by Duke], both cross-cultural assessment tools grounded in the LMR [Linear-active, Multi-active, and Reactive] framework. Other research interests include strategy/structure/performance linkages.

Dr. White is the Program Director for both the Study Abroad in Transition Economies [China/Russia/South Africa] and for the Business Mediterranean Style: Study Abroad in Greece & Turkey Program. She is also the Director of the Robinson Honors Program and the Director of Robinson Business Learning Community.
