In the Smith EMBA program, you’ll join a cohort of 30-40 executives on a journey of knowledge
acquisition and personal growth. The 19-month program begins and ends with one-week residencies
at the University of Maryland in College Park at a conference center near or on-campus.
Classes meet on alternating Fridays and Saturdays with an overnight stay, included
in the tuition, at a conference center near or on-campus.
The bonds you create with your classmates in the classroom, during team

applying these concepts
in your new world.
The cohort experience creates a rich environment for learning—and for life.
