The Robert H. Smith School of Business is an internationally recognized leader in management education and research. One of 12 colleges and schools at the University of Maryland, College Park, the Smith School offers innovative academic programs – including undergraduate, full-time MBA, part-time MBA, online MBA, executive MBA, specialty masters, PhD, certificate, and custom executive education programs – that serve students, employers, and alumni, as well as business, government and nonprofit organizations. In addition to mastering core functional business knowledge, Smith students develop sophisticated analytical and communication skills, and an “integrative” systems understanding of the way the functional aspects of organizations interact. Students learn how to leverage big data for better decision-making, and explore their career options in a tight-knit community that encourages intelligent risk-taking, not cutthroat competition. The rigorous curriculum is complemented by a wide array of hands-on experiential learning opportunities and interactions with executives through Smith Live Cases and consulting projects. Class sizes are small and the faculty are supportive, challenging and invested in student success. Smith’s faculty are regularly ranked among the best in the world, producing research that is published in top journals and cited by top scholars. They are committed to creating a vibrant intellectual community in which future business leaders are equipped to assess complex problems and deliver innovative solutions.
