Inspired Business Education
In the global economy, business success requires knowledge and skills that are nothing short of inspired.
At the Robert H. Smith School of Business at the University of Maryland, inspired business education is our business. Our faculty is world class. Our research is cutting edge. Our learning is experiential and rooted in the real world. And our students learn to think like entrepreneurs.
One of 12 colleges and schools at the University of Maryland in College Park, the Smith School is plugged into the business, government, nonprofit and professional networks of the Washington, D.C., metroplex.
Our community of scholars and practitioners is deeply supportive of learning while equipping students to succeed in an often contentious marketplace.
Our broad range of programs, certificates and degrees are designed to prepare working professionals to hit the ground running in a world economy that is in flux, with technology and global competition accelerating the pace of change.
To do that, we offer an undergraduate, speciality master's, PhD, and full-time, part-time, online, and executive MBA programs.
The world economy is in flux. Technology and global competition are accelerating the pace of change. Entrepreneurs are working relentlessly to find the next big ideas and take them to market and to scale. The future is uncertain but filled with boundless opportunity.
