Miami University and Christ University students met for the first time at the beginning of a 2-week program at Christ University in Bengaluru, India. Students were working together across disciplines to use entrepreneurial and design thinking techniques to identify possible paths to ameliorating local global health problems.

The Global Health Minor was designed from the ground up by asking leaders in global health—both in development organizations and in leading graduate programs—what they were looking for in their ideal job or graduate student candidate. Miami's Global Health minor consists of a course sequence specifically designed to enable students to master the knowledge and skills wanted by employers and admissions officers in the field.
