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 undergraduate, online and on-campus business master's, full-time, part-time, online and executive MBA, and PhD degree programs, and non-degree and executive education programs.
The Center for Global Business is the hub of global learning and activity at Maryland Smith. Our mission is to connect the diverse members of the Smith School community (students, faculty, staff, alumni) to the world and the world to the Smith School, to provide these members and partners with opportunities to gain a global mindset and build international business skills, and to serve as a Maryland resource center for companies seeking to take their goods and services into the global marketplace.
