Research

Pioneering business research can prepare students to be transformational business leaders, and equip companies to transform themselves and their markets. The lifeblood of a business school is its faculty, and at the University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business, our faculty is inspiring, supportive and world-class.

The combined intellectual capital of the Smith School’s 150 full-time and 50 part-time faculty are geared to the forces that are transforming the global economy and business, and dedicated to helping our students understand and adapt to change. The Smith School is consistently ranked in the top 15 in the world for faculty research by Businessweek and Financial Times.
